NASHVILLE, TN. — Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical of Nashville has been named the No. 1 Ruud Reliable Top Contractor for 2013.
Each year Ruud—part of the Rheem family of HVAC products and one of North America’s largest manufacturers of cooling and water heating products—recognizes 10 contractors across the nation. Hiller received the highest recognition because of its success in leading the industry in sales, customer support and overall service to local homeowners.

“Being named a Ruud Reliable Top Contractor is an honor that I am proud to share with every member of my team,” said Jimmy Hiller, president of Hiller. “Our dedication to providing our customers with the best products and service possible is what led us to partner with Ruud in the first place. To be recognized for that dedication means we’re delivering not just on our commitment to our partners—but also to our customers.”
Hiller partnered with Comfort Supply and Kenny Pipe & Supply in 2012 to create an in-house supply house for various Hiller locations. Comfort Supply supplies the Ruud HVAC products and Kenny Pipe & Supply supplies the plumbing products. The partnership, referred to as KPACS, allows Hiller to provide its technicians and installers with the HVAC and plumbing supplies and equipment they need on a daily basis.
“Because of the great work Hiller does and the large number of homeowners they serve throughout Tennessee, it made sense for us to create the KPACS partnership,” said Clay Blevins, president of Comfort Supply.
Comfort Supply and Kenny Pipe & Supply currently has a KPACS warehouse in five of Hiller’s locations in Nashville, Murfreesboro, Knoxville, Columbia and Clarksville.
“The partnership helps Hiller improve its productivity and allows the company to get its customers the Ruud parts and equipment that they need—quickly,” Blevins added. “We’re proud to congratulate Hiller on this huge recognition, and we look forward to continue providing the company with the reliable Ruud brand for many years to come.”
Ruud Reliable Top Contractors are committed to high industry standards and provide outstanding customer service and product offerings. Ruud honors qualifying Top Contractors by offering them access to valuable products, programs and services that are designed to keep them competitive in their local markets. Benefits also include industry-leading training and educational resources.
“All of our Ruud Reliable Top Contractors are good at what they do, but it goes without saying that the number one spot on the top 10 list represents the best of the best,” said Nitish Singh, Rheem corporate director of product management. “We’re impressed by Hiller’s growth, the quality of service the company provides, and its overall performance. We’re pleased to name them a Ruud Reliable Top Contractor for 2013.”
