OKLAHOMA CITY — Sept. 18, 2017— In July, Daikin announced its new relationship with Harrison Energy Partners (HEP), the largest commercial and industrial HVAC firm in Arkansas, as the authorized manufacturer’s representative in central, northwest and western Arkansas, and eastern Oklahoma. Effective immediately, Daikin is pleased to extend that territory into western Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City and the surrounding region.

With strengths in HVAC applications, owner sales, system service, controls and energy services, HEP helps customers efficiently maintain comfort in their buildings. HEP’s breadth of solutions and energy expertise significantly expands Daikin’s ability to serve its customers in this extended territory, where HEP will represent Daikin’s full portfolio including chillers, air handlers, packaged rooftop units, water source heat pumps, Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV®) systems, and Intelligent Solutions®.

HEP’s CEO, Bill Harrison, is eager to bring HEP’s strengths into this new market. “Oklahoma is a natural fit for HEP, and we are thrilled our relationship with Daikin has allowed for such an expansion. Oklahoma City’s rich talent will serve as a great complement to our mission of delivering commercial HVAC excellence at a superior value so we are always our client’s first choice. We are committed to building superior teams, equipped with proper resources, to serve Oklahoma through our Tulsa and Oklahoma City offices.”

Daikin Applied’s EVP of Sales, Marketing and Aftermarket, Kirk Thorne, is confident that expanding HEP’s territory to the Oklahoma City region will propel Daikin’s sales in that market. “HEP has been recognized repeatedly not just for having the best HVAC talent in the markets where they operate, but for being a top employer. We can build on that strength to be an unmatchable force in HVAC systems and solutions in Oklahoma City.”

Daikin would like to thank Engineered Equipment Inc., its previous equipment representative in the territory, for its contribution to Daikin during its tenure as the Daikin representative.
