AUSTIN, Texas

HTS Texas, the Texas partner of the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturers’ representative in North America, announced today that the company is expanding its partnership with Danfoss to include the central Texas markets of San Antonio & Austin. Danfoss manufactures variable frequency drives (VFDs) that increase energy efficiency and reduce lifecycle costs across all vertical markets.

HTS has seen a 26 percent year over year growth in VFD sales since their initial partnership with Danfoss in 2005. The newly expanded territory will increase HTS’ sales, service and aftermarket parts support head count for the Danfoss product by 35 percent.

“Offering high quality, energy-efficient products is vital to providing comprehensive HVAC solutions in Central Texas,” said Mike Donovan, president and owner of HTS Texas. “Expanding our partnership with Danfoss will create opportunities to grow each other’s business, and allow us to provide customers in Central Texas with industry-leading products.”

Danfoss VLT HVAC Drives feature advanced energy and system monitoring combined with a modular platform that makes the drive easy to operate. The drives can be installed in virtually any application; HTS Texas touts a successful portfolio of Danfoss jobs ranging from hospitals to elementary schools, commercial buildings and more.

Danfoss has been a trusted name in the industry for decades and provides some of the most reliable products that HTS Texas represents in its north and southeast Texas markets. With the addition of the Austin and San Antonio territories, HTS Texas will be able to bring a quality VFD solution to central Texas facilities.

“We are excited about this opportunity because the Danfoss HTS partnership has been a winning combination in other areas and we look forward to expanding that partnership in the Central/South Texas area,” said Terry Davies, Danfoss HVAC/R Regional Manager.
