APR Supply Co. held its 19th Annual Buying Show in Hershey, PA on August 11th. Prior to the show, APR took the opportunity to host some of its top manufacturer partners and recognize a few for going above and beyond.
DiversiTech, a manufacturer of equipment pads, components and related HVACR products, was named APR’s Vendor Innovator of the Year by APR VP of Supply Chain, Zachary Derr. “This award recognizes a partner who contributes in innovative ways to both APR and our industry. DiversiTech has differentiated themselves by being a brand of brands through acquisitions and internal strategies. Most recently, they added fresh Aire UV, a leader in indoor air quality products to their portfolio,” Derr said.
Diablo, a tool manufacturer, was named APR’s Vendor Partner of the Year. “This award recognizes a company who best represents a partner to APR. Diablo consistently participates in branch training and events, while expanding their product line and finding ways to make everyone more successful,” Derr stated.
In addition to giving out a few awards, APR was also the recipient of one. Gohn & Stambaugh, a long time APR plumbing and HVAC contractor that offers complete residential and commercial plumbing and HVAC services in central PA, presented APR with their 2021 Vendor of the Year award. This award recognizes outstanding service and commitment to Gohn & Stambaugh needs.
APR representatives Scott Weaver, president and CEO, Jason Zepp, West York branch location manager and Chris Farling, VP of branches, were present to accept the award. “We’ve been the proud recipient of the Gohn & Stambaugh Vendor of the Year Award several times throughout the years, and we’re excited to continue to provide them with outstanding service and support for many years to come,” said Weaver.
The APR team continued its efforts in bringing together contractors and manufacturer partners with a second Buying Show in Monroeville, PA on August 17th. This was the first time the 99-year-old company conducted two shows in a single year but is certainly setting the pace for its upcoming 100-year Anniversary celebration in 2022.
