RLS Announces New Sales Partner in Ontario, Canada.

We’re proud to announce a new partnership with CENTRIC Sales & Marketing Inc., a leading manufacturers’ representative serving the Canadian HVAC/R industry, to represent the RLS product line throughout the province of Ontario.

Headquartered in Toronto, CENTRIC Sales and Marketing Inc. serves the HVAC/R, plumbing and mechanical sectors by representing only the best products and manufacturers into wholesale distribution. “We’re very excited for the opportunity to increase the use of time-saving RLS press technology in the Canadian market,” said Jeremy Torra, founder of CENTRIC. “As the transition from brazing to pressing continues, we will be there to provide training and support to both HVAC/R contractors and distributors.”

RLS press fittings connect in 10 seconds using a battery-powered tool and jaws, replacing the time-consuming process of manually brazing HVAC/R joints. The fittings result in faster, more consistent connections that reduce total installed costs, while also increasing jobsite safety by eliminating the use of an open flame.

“We’re thrilled to have CENTRIC on the RLS team,” said Paul Schubert, president of RLS. “We needed a partner that could be on the ground every day in Ontario, helping us meet the increasing demand in the market. Jeremy and his team have a thorough understanding of how our technology works and the many benefits it offers to HVAC/R contractors. They will do a great job in helping us grow our business.”

RLS fittings are the original HVAC/R press fittings and have an unmatched track record of success, with more than 15 million fittings installed since their introduction in 2015. They are UL listed for pressures up to 700 psi and are CRN approved (#0A18303 and #0A22551).
