CoreMax Manufacturer Adds National Distributor Partner to Expand CoreMax Tool Presence

Minneapolis, MN—January 12, 2017—FasTest, Inc. announces a new partnership with national distribution partner, JB Industries. For nearly 15 years, FasTest has been manufacturing the revolutionary CoreMax access valve for refrigeration manufacturers, which allows for rapid evacuation and charging of HVAC-R units.

As CoreMax’s popularity with manufacturers has continued to increase, so has demand for tooling to easily service HVAC-R units equipped with CoreMax. FasTest’s partnership with national distributor JB Industries will help provide service technicians in the field with FasTest’s world class tools for the CoreMax system, which allow service technicians to evacuate, charge and reclaim faster than with a Schrader type valve and associated tooling. “We believe that partnering with the trusted name of JB Industries will allow FasTest to quickly introduce our line of service tools to technicians in the field and ultimately make their job more simple and efficient,” said Joe Flaherty, National Sales Manager of HVAC-R at FasTest.
