I have become increasingly concerned about trends I am seeing in the HVAC Controls marketplace regarding Internet Only Distributors and the Vendors that enable them. After Clint’s post on this topic and much conversation with other distributors, vendors, and customers I realized that there is both confusion and a certain apathetic acceptance of what is going on in the HVAC marketplace. From my perspective it is like watch a train wreck in slow motion, unintended consequences abound. I decided to try something new and create a video editorial as a format to both say and show some of the distributing trends I am seeing regarding the effect of internet only distributors on life as we know it in our HVAC world.
This was a lot harder than I thought, so after forty hours of editing and re editing I decided ENOUGH ! And of course I am still finding mistakes, For example I mean $250,000 to two to three million, you will know what this means when you watch the video. Please let me know what you think in comments.
