HTS, the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturers' representative in North America, named five additional Texas principals from its Houston, TX office to lead the company's continued growth in Texas and throughout North America.

“As we look to build on what is already a successful platform of products and services for HTS, we plan to get further into the commercial and industrial building space,” said Mike Donovan, HTS Texas President. “Our clients and suppliers are demanding that HTS continues to build a larger and deeper Service, Controls, Parts, and mechanical distribution business to allow us to continue providing top-notch support as these clients and suppliers grow with us.”

Since its incorporation in 2001, HTS Texas has grown from start-up to gross $163 million in revenue in 2015. In coming years, HTS aims to continue its growth with a goal to double its revenue in Texas by 2020, to reach $330 million in just 19 years of operation. “Our goals for 2020 will effectively double our staff in our larger markets, and this alone will require more leadership within our organization,” Donovan said. “We enjoy building our own employees from the ground up into our family culture, which is why we selected leaders that have been an integral part of establishing and implementing that culture.”

In addition to various sales achievement awards from manufacturers, HTS Texas was recognized as part of the Inc. 5000 in 2015 and 2016, which ranks the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The company was also a part of Houston Business Journal’s Fast 100 in 2014 and 2015, which highlights the fastest-growing private sector companies in Houston based on two-year revenue growth. HTS has six locations across Texas in Houston, Beaumont, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Round Rock and San Antonio.

“HTS Texas has so many opportunities within the current Texas marketplace for our suite of services. We wanted to reward those that have been loyal and consistent performers for several years, and give those proven performers more leadership and management responsibilities of the firm,” said Donovan. “We are just getting started here at HTS, even after 15 years of continued growth in revenue and personnel.”
