ECR International, parent company of notable HVAC industry brands such as Dunkirk, Utica Boilers, Pennco, Argo controls, Olsen furnaces, is pleased to announce N.H. Yates its manufacturer’s representative in the Mid-Atlantic region. “We are extremely happy to be partnering with N.H Yates to represent our products. N.H Yates is like-minded and share our passion for the boiler and hydronics industry” said Dave Walsh, Director of Sales for ECR International.
ECR was started in 1928 by Earle C. Reed founding both Dunkirk Radiator and Utica Boilers. Through organic growth and acquisition, ECR has become a multi-product and brand manufacturer of boilers, furnaces, controls and air-conditioning products. Since 1949 N.H. Yates & Co., Inc. has been providing the highest quality products and services to the HVAC and plumbing industry. Yates & Co. is primarily a manufacturer’s representative firm operating regionally in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and parts of Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, New Jersey, and North & South Carolina. N.H. Yates is headquartered in Cockeysville, Maryland with satellite offices throughout the territory and fully staffed offices and warehouses in Pottstown, PA, Cockeysville, MD and Kernersville, NC.
Dan Kelbaugh, Vice President of Sales for N.H. Yates is very excited to be working with ECR International. Upon entering the agreement with ECR, Kelbaugh shared with his team, “Not only does ECR have a great product lineup that covers our entire territory, but it is managed by a great team of energetic, BOILER people who will be working very closely with us and our customers to increase boiler market share. We will be representing all of the boiler brands under the ECR umbrella: Utica, Utica Heating, Dunkirk, Pennco, as well as the Olsen oil furnace products.” Dan continued “These are very exciting times for the boiler world.”
N.H. Yates has 57 employees and provides 27 sales and support professionals to service ECR distributors, contractors and engineers. ECR recognizes the strength and vast industry knowledge the N.H. Yates team brings to their product offerings. Both Dunkirk and Utica Boilers lines are anchored by their condensing wall hung product which features a ‘made in the USA’ stainless steel heat exchanger. Walsh continued, “Dan and I have been honorable competitors for many years and it is great to finally be on the same team. When we shared our heat exchanger design with the N.H. Yates team, they quickly recognized how special it was…because they’re boiler people too. We do not use a ’me too’, ‘cookie cutter’ heat exchanger. We use a heat exchanger that was designed in the US for the US market.” ECR has the breadth of product line to cover all facets of the US boiler and oil furnace market.
