HTS Plans to
Focus on DFW Market in 2016.
HTS, the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturers’
representative in North America, plans to focus its investments on
expansion in Dallas in 2016. Since 2010, HTS has seen significant
success in the Dallas market and aims to move forward by investing
90 percent of 2016 investment funds into its growth in the area.
The company will be increasing the size of all of its divisions in
Dallas, including custom equipment, service and repair, parts,
building automation systems, FIT building energy management and
airside products. In 2016, HTS plans to hire more than 20 new
employees in the Dallas area, resulting in a 60 percent increase in
local staff. Positions include service technicians, controls
technicians, and a wide variety of sales representatives for
mechanical, service, controls and parts divisions. New leadership in
the North Texas area is expected to help drive this growth.
In November 2015, HTS announced Stephen Poles as sales manager in
Dallas, and George Buckmaster as sales manager in Fort Worth. Poles
possesses almost 20 years of experience in the HVAC industry,
including holding executive level positions at Daikin, an
industry-leading HVAC manufacturer represented by HTS. Buckmaster
also has strong experience in the industry, including 10 years in
the DFW market, and was one of the original members to open the HTS
North Texas office in 2010.

The Dallas market
provides unique opportunities for HTS by offering a strong,
stable economy that draws in many business relocations,
resulting in an explosion of growth while still allowing the
city to remain an affordable place to live. HTS focuses on
serving the wide variety of markets available in Dallas, such as
healthcare, data centers, commercial office buildings,
hospitality, K-12, and higher education, and wants to invest
their growing business in a growing economy. “The Dallas and
Fort Worth commercial construction markets are among the very
best in North America in terms of sustained growth over the last
couple of years.
With more businesses attracted to the area each year and several
more announced recently, HTS is planning for continued growth in
the market sector. We find ourselves in the enviable position of
having to grow our team to continue providing our clients with
the highest levels of customer support,” Poles said. About HTS
