Iras I can see your points about your dist, I know it happens around here too. I guess the reason I feel the way I do is because of the number of dealers buying goodman at a negative gross profit for goodman and the selling to Johnstone and other co-distributors at cost. The only justification for that is market share (moving boxes). All distributors have numbers to meet, market share targets, etc to keep their jobs so in a sense your statement is correct, but goodman will sell a piece of equipment to anyone that has an account with them. If there are 5 HVAC dealers in the same industrial park they can all buy goodman, where the others choose not to allow that many in a small area. I know this is open to each distributors practices, but in my area it would seem at least a 5-10 minute or more drive between Trane dealers and generally the same for the other "name brands."
