January 9, 2018

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) announces that Trademasters, Inc. of Lorton, Virginia, is ACCA’s 2018 Commercial Contractor of the Year.

"ACCA is excited to present the Commercial Contractor of the Year award to Dave and Beth Kyle and their colleagues at Trademasters,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, President and CEO of ACCA. “Dave and Beth are inexhaustible leaders in the HVAC industry. They grew Trademasters from an operation in their basement into a company with some of the most prestigious government contracts in the country. ACCA looks forward to the Kyles’ continued leadership and dedication to the industry.”

Dave and Beth Kyle, owners of Trademasters, Inc., will receive the Commercial Contractor of the Year award on February 14 at the Industry Champions session at the ACCA Annual Conference and IE3 Expo, February 12-14 in Washington, D.C.

Dave Kyle said, “Trademasters is honored to be recognized by ACCA for this prestigious award. While Beth and I have dedicated our lives to building a successful business, we also recognize that our success may not have been possible without the support of fellow ACCA members, our MIX Group, and the talented staff we rely upon every day to serve our customers. We look forward to continued success in our business and will continue to advance professionalism in our industry and support our fellow contractors.”

Kyle serves on ACCA’s Joint Futures Committee, Professional Development Committee, Veteran’s Workforce Initiative Task Force, and the ACCA Commercial Advisory Committee that is creating new offerings for commercial contractors.
