Johnson Controls and US Airconditioning Distributors to Supply Western Region

Dealers will experience increased distribution

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ — Johnson Controls, Inc., the global leader in building efficiency, is pleased to announce it has finalized its distribution agreement with US Airconditioning Distributors, Inc.


In June, the companies announced their intent to enter into an agreement to enhance the independent distribution of residential and light-commercial products to dealers in Southern California, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and certain parts of Nevada.

“This arrangement reaffirms Johnson Controls’ commitment to independent distribution for its residential and light-commercial products,” said C. David Myers, president of the building efficiency business of Johnson Controls. “This further strengthens our ability to supply York(R)-branded products in the Western region of the United States.”

US Airconditioning, headquartered in the Los Angeles area, is one of the world’s largest privately owned HVAC distributors. The company provides HVAC products for both residential and commercial customers, including equipment, parts and supplies.

“This is a natural combination that provides our dealers with a diversified, high-quality product line and ensure we are aligned with an organization committed to applying the resources necessary for continued growth,” said John Staples, president of US Airconditioning.

US Airconditioning has terminated its distributor relationship with Carrier Corporation in the affected territories and no longer supplies their product lines.
