COLUMBUS, Ohio, – Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) reported in a recent monthly TRENDS report that average sales for HARDI distributor members increased by 19.4 percent in January 2018.
The average annualized growth for the 12 months through January 2018 is 6.9 percent.
“January and February are the two least important revenue producing months of the year for HARDI distributors,” said HARDI Market Research & Benchmarking Analyst Brian Loftus. “January sales can be very volatile because of weather disruptions. The results this January got a big boost from the colder than normal temperatures that apparently led to some equipment disruptions.”
“We would be skeptical of 19.4 percent if not for the weather event backing it up,” said HARDI Senior
