San Antonio, TX— The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the nation’s largest association of indoor environmental systems professionals, has announced that Air-Tro, Inc. of Monrovia, Calif., is the commercial winner of the association’s 2011 Contractors of the Year program.
The winner was announced at the closing general session of ACCA’s 43rd Annual Conference and Indoor Air Expo, held this week in San Antonio, Texas.
“We had some very notable commercial contracting companies in the running as finalists this year,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA President & CEO. “Air-Tro, Inc. has been a true leader in the industry, by being an advocate for quality installation and supporting ACCA’s efforts to create and improve the QI standard.”
“It’s an amazing privilege to be named ACCA Commercial Contractor of the Year,” said Robert Helbing, president of Air-Tro, Inc. “This is the greatest honor an HVAC contractor can hope for; it’s like a baseball player being named Most Valuable Player, or an actor receiving an Oscar. Everyone in the HVAC industry knows we work in a field with a low profile; we find job satisfaction in work done well rather than in public acclaim. That makes it even more exciting for us at Air-Tro to have been chosen for this award.”
A full profile of Air-Tro, Inc. will be published in the fall Contractor Excellence magazine, as well as on the magazine’s website, www.contractorexcellence.com.
The other commercial finalists this year were Donnelly Mechanical Corp. and K&M Shillingford, Inc.
For over forty years, ACCA has served the nationwide educational, policy, and technical interests of the small businesses who design, install, and maintain indoor environmental systems. For more information, visit www.acca.org.
