Malco Partners with Elite Trades HVAC National Championship

Malco to provide tools to be used in championship skills-testing event, highlighting top tradespeople from across the US

Malco Tools, one of the nation’s leading solution developers and manufacturers of a variety of high-quality tools for the HVAC trade, announced today that it is partnering with the ServiceTitan Elite Trades Championship Series (ETCS) to sponsor the 2024 ServiceTitan HVAC National Championship.

During ETCS, top tradespeople from across the U.S. go head-to-head in a series of challenging and skill-testing events throughout the year, culminating in one final round of competition for the top 10 HVAC professionals and top 10 HVAC apprentices in West Palm Beach, Florida, in September 2024. Malco will provide tools for the finalists to use during the championship, where they will prove their skills in a custom-built arena by installing equipment in a short timeframe while being judged on their workmanship, proper tool usage and safety.

“We are excited to help power the exciting ServiceTitan Elite Trades Championship Series to shine a spotlight on the high-quality skills HVAC tradespeople use on the job every day,” said Rebecca Talbot, vice president of marketing for Malco Tools. “HVAC pros are incredibly skilled, and Malco is proud to support a platform that allows them to showcase their expertise in their craft.”

The ETCS program was built to celebrate the importance and incredible range of skills the people in the trades implement every day that keeps the country running. ETCS is dedicated to showcasing the incredible career opportunities in the industry, growing local and national support for all of the trades and developing new platforms that expand the awareness of the amazing stories of the men and women in the trades.

Malco is a strong supporter and advocate of careers in the trades, donating significant quantities of in-kind products and apparel annually to a variety of skilled trade education programs, competitions and events across the country. Malco also coordinates the “Head of the Class” Student Recognition Program that partners with education programs in the U.S. to recognize high-achieving students and entire graduating classes in the HVAC/sheet metal and building construction fields. To date, Malco has reached more than 85,000 trade students through Head of the Class.
