Atlanta-based DiversiTech Corp., a manufacturer and supplier of HVACR parts and accessories, has been named Ferguson’s 2017 HVAC vendor of the year.  Announced during Ferguson’s 2017 Vendor Summit Awards in Norfolk, Va., DiversiTech was selected for helping Ferguson achieve greater sales and margin growth, as well as providing exceptional marketing, logistics and customer representative support at Ferguson’s branch locations.

“We are honored to have received this important award,” said Bud Sjogren, DiversiTech chief sales and marketing officer.  “As a partner to Ferguson for more than two decades, the award demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing them with the products and services they need to support their customers and business goals.  The award also validates our mantra of ‘simplify your work.’  We are looking forward to strengthening our partnership with Ferguson and all our customers in 2018 and for many years to come!”

Ferguson evaluates its vendors across four main categories:  Financial impact, efficiency, engagement/integration and the extra mile factor. DiversiTech received high marks across all categories. The company specifically was cited in the engagement/integration category for its leading role in “pricing, execution” for supporting “Hot Deals” and new product launches.  Under the extra-mile category, DiversiTech was noted for its ability to deepen its partnership with Ferguson by holding quarterly meetings, which assists with strategic planning and execution, and fosters greater communication between the two organizations.

DiversiTech has been a partner to Ferguson for more than 20 years. DiversiTech provides all its core HVAC products to Ferguson, including equipment pads, mounting systems, heating products, ductless systems and related HVAC/R tools.
