Named 7 times as Trane’s #1 Independent Wholesale Distributor in the U.S. We believe that when our partners succeed, we succeed.
In 1981, R.O. Hunton moved to Houston and established Houston Trane, the forerunner of The Hunton Group. In 1990, he acquired the distribution division that added Trane residential and light commercial products to the company. He then built what is now the Hunton Group’s headquarters building in Houston’s Westchase district to house the companies. For the next 12 years, Hunton Distribution witnessed steady growth driven by customer service, superior products and well thought-out business objectives.
In 2003, the company expanded with the acquisition of the Oklahoma City and West Texas territories for residential and light commercial equipment and parts. This included warehouse facilities in Oklahoma City; Lubbock, Texas; Amarillo, Texas and El Paso, Texas.
Hunton Distribution’s growth strategy was successful, and the company was recognized as Trane’s #1 Independent Wholesale Distributor in the U.S. for 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2016, and 2017.
Still planning for growth and to better serve our customer, Hunton Distribution opened its new headquarters building in north Houston in December 2008. The 117,000 square-foot facility contains office space, a Parts Center, state-of-the-art training facility and over 100,000 square feet of warehouse space. The building was awarded the LEED Silver certification by meeting stringent LEED credit qualifications in the categories of Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation and Design.
In 2017, Hunton Distribution consolidated locations in response to changes in the market. We closed our offices in El Paso, Lubbock and Amarillo so that we could better serve the Houston and Oklahoma markets. We look forward to opening a third distribution facility on the south side of Houston in late 2018. This location will be 75,000 sq. ft and will better serve our customers in the South and Southeast part of Houston.
Hunton Distribution employs over 120 people in all our locations, and each person is focused on customer satisfaction and providing an environment that strives to make it easy to do business with.
For the past 28 years, it has been our privilege to serve the dealer/contractor community with quality products, first class service and industry expertise. At Hunton Distribution, we look forward to sharing this partnership with you long term.
