Nominate a Technician for Recognition by Malco as the 2019 HVAC Trade-Pro of the Year!
“We are pleased to recognize the HVAC industry’s elite contractors and technicians who are not only providing top-quality service to their customers but also making a difference in their community and focused on safety on the job,” said Malco president and CEO Mardon Quandt. “Each of the 2018 Trade-Pro of the Year winners are helping advance the industry’s reputation, safety, and experience, and we commend them on their dedication to the trade.”
That quote, from Malco’s CEO, is from last November, as five top HVAC contractors and technicians from across the United States were announced as winners of Malco’s second annual Trade-Pro of the Year award. It’s an award that Malco is more than proud to hand out, as we love recognizing and celebrating outstanding HVAC professionals who excel on the job and in their communities.
The Trade-Pro of the Year award began in 2017 as a way for Malco to shine some much-deserved light and recognition on all the trade professionals out there who work so hard and represent the industry in the best possible way. At Malco, we understand the long hours and the many sacrifices that go into being a successful HVAC technician, and we wanted to acknowledge the best of the best. We also recognize that safety is paramount to growing the industry. Malco knows that just about every HVAC technician is hard working and dedicated, so we also wanted to recognize tradesmen who are making a difference in their communities. It’s difference makers both on the job and in the community that shine the best light on the HVAC profession.
Before we give you details on the 2019 version of the Trade Pro of the Year award, we’d like to once again offer our congratulations to the five 2018 award recipients:
- Greg Chidester, union sheet metal worker #20, Schuster Sheet Metal, Elkhart, IN
- Bob Hennen, self-employed HVAC technician, Eden Valley, MN
- Matt Schoner, HVAC service technician, Advanced Thermal Solutions, Casper, WY
- Emmanuel Williams, master HVAC contractor, EMX Heating & Air Conditioning, Baltimore, MD
- Todd Yarrington, service technician/installer, Allied General Mechanical, Detroit, MI
Malco received nearly 400 nominations for the program in 2018, an increase of over 30 percent from 2017, with all qualifying trade professionals who submitted a nomination receiving a Malco cap and gloves. We expect to receive even more nominations in 2019. Nominations for the Trade Professional of the Year program are open now and will be accepted through June 30, 2019. Winners will be announced in September!
