Kloeckner at ASHRAE Winter Conference of HVAC&R Industry Trade Show
The ASHRAE Winter Conference is the world’s largest heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) gathering and is being held in Las Vegas on January 28. As one of the major suppliers to the HVAC&R industry, Kloeckner Metals will be in attendance. Kloeckner services most of the leading brands in this arena. In total, around 60% of Kloeckner’s flat-rolled business is in the HVAC&R sector.
“Our top accounts and the sector that we sell the biggest percentage into is heating and air,” says Mike Kirby, territory manager for Kloeckner Metals Tulsa.
Initially, the conference catered primarily to engineers, but over recent years it has expanded to include sourcing and purchasing. As such, Kloeckner is increasing its presence at the event. The Kloeckner team will meet with clients and potential customers to catch up and offer solutions to the HVAC&R industry’s supply needs.
“Kloeckner has launched many new initiatives the past several years from digitization to fabrication that proves we are the best in class service center”. Mike says. “We are a solutions company that brings more than just a number to the table, we bring value.
Kloeckner facilities are more than just warehouses; they are processing facilities that provide one-stop-shopping. Kloeckner’s national logistical footprint is also very attractive, especially for multi-site customers.
In addition to these benefits, Kloeckner also offers digital tools that improve communication and streamline the supply chain. Kloeckner has worked with several HVAC industry leaders to digitalize and push forward with new technologies. For example, Kloeckner offers online ordering through its Parts Manager that gives customers a clear inventory picture in real time.
Kloeckner is looking forward to reconnecting with current customers and meeting new prospects at the conference. If you are interested in arranging a meeting with Kloeckner, please reach out to Mike Kirby at [email protected], or call him at (918)408-3139.
