Direct Expansion Solutions (DXS), a division of HTS, the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturer's representative in North America, will represent Daikin AC (Americas) Inc.'s line of variable-refrigerant-volume (VRV) HVAC equipment in North Texas.

DXS specializes in VRV implementation and design and will work closely with Daikin AC, which will provide technical, training, and design support.

"We are excited about our valuable partnership with HTS and DXS because we share a common goal: to be the best in our respective industries,” Russell Tavolacci, Daikin AC vice president and general manager, said. “DXS maintains an impressive staff of HVAC professionals that will become an important asset to Daikin as we continue to expand in North America.”

Mike Donovan, principal of HTS Texas, said: “The move to Dallas/Fort Worth will enable DXS to support the marketing and sales effort for the Daikin VRV technology. We are thrilled to offer an on-the-ground presence to provide the latest innovations in high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems to building owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, mechanical contractors, and facilities-maintenance crews in North Texas.”
