KYKLO becomes a HARDI Member
Using the tagline, “Connecting HVACR Leaders. Delivering Timely Resources. Supporting Wholesale Distribution.” the Heating Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International Association better known as HARDI is recognized as one of the leading associations in the wholesale industry. KYKLO has been selected for membership in the group.
As KYKLO continues to move forward in the world of distribution, it just makes sense that many of our skills could be used in this important industry. KYKLO President and Co-Founder, Remi Ducrocq, had this to say about the organization: “Since launching in North America we have heard many good things about the HARDI organization. We are honored to become a member of such a well thought of organization. Much of expertise in business digitalization extends across and can be applied to every industry.”
Manufacturers especially have sought our guidance in syndicating product data out to their diverse channel of distributors, and in the case of two-step channels select dealers. KYKLO looks forward to both learning and sharing within this important association.
HARDI CEO, Talbot Gee shared this message: “When Frank Hurtte called to tell me about KYKLO joining HARDI, I took the call because I’ve seen first-hand Frank’s belief in the power of associations and I know, thanks to their relationship with Frank, KYKLO will immediately become an active and engaged member driven to assist our members. We know from the last two years how especially important product information technology is to our distributors so I look forward to seeing how KYKLO could bring value to HVACR wholesale channel.”
We are looking forward to making many new friends in the HVACR industry. KYKLO has plans to attend HARDI’s Annual Conference in Houston December 3-6.

Today HARDI represents more than 400 wholesale companies, nearly 300 manufacturing associates and nearly 100 manufacturer representatives. It is estimated that HARDI members represent 70 percent of the dollar value of the HVACR products sold through distribution.
Information may well overshadow product innovation as the leading market driver. Organizations that are information masters will control the HVACR market. Having the right products, at the right place, at the right time, at the right price, for the right customers, is all about information.
HARDI is the organization designed to support and serve the HVACR distribution industry.
