Just look at what can happen when countries come together as they did 75 years ago in 1944. Allied nations joined forces in northern France for what we now honor as D-Day. Soldiers from different countries all fought together, significantly improving on their effectiveness and outcome for success. Put simply, the allied forces multiplied, and their efforts forever changed the landscape of our world.
The same is true when businesses come together. Just take a step back and think about what we do in the HVAC industry. Through our collective efforts we touch many lives who seek comfort, control, and peace-of-mind. These things matter a lot in the world and today we live in times of accelerated and relentless change. Between trade wars, tariffs, geopolitical threats, roller-coaster weather, a volatile stock market, a global pandemic, divided government at home ... the list goes on and on and on. It’s a 24/7 news cycle that’s impossible to escape.
Through it all, we must make the conscious choice each day to focus on what we can influence as leaders in companies. That’s our choice to make and to remain positive because there’s so much positive going on to talk about. The fundamentals driving our industry are strong:
- 70 million units were installed between 1989-1998 leaving many 20 and 30 years old
- 100 million units installed between 1999-2008 are now 10-20 years old
- 95 million units were installed just in the last 10 years
The install base in this industry is ripe for replacement. There’s a lot to be gained with a joint effort to get this business and it’s going to take a lot of work and effort from us all. At Allied, we’re taking a thoughtful approach to deliver on our value proposition to you and we see there are many of you outpacing the industry.
For many, there’s an amazing opportunity to multiply together but Allied can’t do this alone. You make Allied the wonderful family that we’re all a part of. When we take this journey together with the same goal in mind, we’re going to go places others in the industry may only dream of.
So, ask yourself, what can you and Allied do together in 2021 to multiply?
