How’s business? Pretty good, not bad, it stinks…..

When distributors get together, the most popular question in existence is, “How’s business?” Once unleashed, the conversation gods spin tales of glory, stories of woe and everything in between. It’s interesting talk, a fun icebreaker but it rarely provides any valuable information.

I would like to commend Heating, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI – for finally putting their information where their idle chat used to be. HARDI publishes a quarterly report on exactly how their members are finding business conditions. While things are not hunky-dory in the housing dependent HVACR world, their members have solid information to steer them through these tough times.

Check out the HARDI Trends here.
