Since early 2010, JPL and Hunton Distribution have been successful partners in the Houston market. John Phillips, JPL’s Central Region Sales Manager, established JPL’s relationship with Hunton Distribution about 9 years ago and continues to service this first-class company today.
Hunton Distribution was founded in 1981, by RO Hunton and presently has 3 top of the line locations – 2 in Houston and 1 in Oklahoma City, with a 4th location opening by the end of 2018. The Houston metro area (as we all know) is the largest HVAC market in the world and Hunton has been recognized as Trane’s #1 independent wholesaler 7 times in the last 12 years! Now that’s impressive.
JPL and Hunton make an excellent team, even in a tough market. Hunton has continued to increase their JPL flex duct sales every year and are now one of JPL’s largest distributors in Texas. The Texas market uses MHP25R6B & MHP25R8B (all poly-bags) and small quantities of AMBlue antimicrobial.
Hunton is a full truck JPL buyer and is serviced from our Denver, CO manufacturing plant. If and when Denver’s lead-time stretches out, JPL‘s Florida plant can ship to Hunton on a JIT basis. JPL ships Hunton truckload orders typically within 4 working days with few, if any, backorders.
JPL is proud to be partnered with such a strong distributor and look forward to our continued growth with this outstanding team.
