1993

In 1993, Carrier approached US Air Conditioning Distributors and suggested that they look into buying the Day and Night Distributorship from Bell Industries in Southern California. After several meetings with Bell Industries executives, US Air Conditioning Distributors completed the acquisition of the Day and Night brand distributorship from Bell Industries in July 1993. Additionally in 1993, Carrier approached US Air Conditioning Distributors again with the opportunity to buy the Payne brand distributorship from Carrier Corporation. The distributorship, located in the City of Industry, was headquartered in the building right next door to their existing operation. In September 1993, US Air Conditioning Distributors purchased the Payne brand distributorship from Carrier Corporation. As a result of these acquisitions, US Air Conditioning Distributors had employment of approximately 200 people, 17 branch locations and sales of slightly under $100 million by the end of 1993.
