Local refrigeration controls company, KE2 Therm Solutions, Washington, has earned its sixth industry award.

This time the company was recognized for excellence in product design in the 15th annual Dealer Design Awards Program, sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine, a leading trade magazine in the refrigeration industry.

KE2 Therm’s KE2 Temp + Valve refrigeration controller earned a Bronze Award in the Commercial Controls category.

An independent panel of industry contractors acted as judges for the contest, selecting the winning products based on their ability to improve the installation, service, and maintenance of HVACR equipment.

“We really listen to our customers, and find out what they think will make their life easier on the job. But, that’s only half of the solution,” said KE2 Therm’s Marketing Manager Ryan Kliethermes.

“Having talented people that are experts in refrigeration, programming, technology, and IoT allows us to take a great idea, and make it a reality,” he said. “That’s exactly how the KE2 Temp + Valve was developed.”

Designed and produced in Washington the Temp + Valve replaces several refrigeration components, simplifying wiring, saving installation time, and reducing inventory.

Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 23 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR industry professionals.
