Everco Heavy Duty announced Wednesday, May 28, the addition of a new video to its website, www.evercohd.com, about the quality of temperature control products being sourced from some low-cost countries. The video is accessible through Everco brand’s home page by clicking on the video link in the upper right corner.
“The heavy-duty air conditioning segment has been hit hard by a flood of poorly designed and constructed products coming into the U.S., so it’s more important than ever to know what you’re buying and where it’s coming from,” says Matt Guden, business development manager for Lewisville, Texas-based Everco. “This video effectively demonstrates the importance of paying close attention to details when selecting a vendor for supply — even with relatively simple products such as accumulators and filter driers which have no moving parts. We posted this video as part of our responsibility and commitment to the heavy-duty air conditioning industry.”
Everco Heavy Duty says it includes analyses in its vendor selection process that contains the verification of not only manufacturing, engineering and quality, but also of statistical process control, QS/ISO certifications, process flow and repeatability, as well as shipping and receiving performance. In addition, Everco Heavy Duty says it maintains an office in Asia that includes sourcing, engineering and logistical personnel; the function of this office mirrors similar functions of its Lewisville product development department, in that a periodical inspection and audit of vendors is performed.
“We have design and engineering expertise, and we test and endorse the quality of all of the products we sell,” Guden says. “With Everco Heavy Duty, you’re getting premium-quality temperature control products that you can trust.”
