About Herrmann Associates

A Manufacturer’s Representative and Stocking Distributor.

Herrmann Associates was founded in 1960 by Joseph Herrmann, a Mechanical engineer, who graduated from University of Pittsburgh and remained president of the company until his retirement in 1990.

Today, Herrmann Associates is a full-service firm with five outside sales people and three inside support. Since 1990, the company has been owned and operated by Dave Herrmann, Joe’s son.

We provide ethical representation of HVAC manufacturers by offering consultative partnering with HVAC professionals, contractors and building owners. We have a long- term relationship with the manufacturers we represent as well as the customers we serve.

We are conveniently located in Pittsburgh, but spend most of our time in the field consulting with or on behalf of our clients.

What We Do

From determining our clients needs, to designing the plan, sourcing the materials, installation and maintenance, we are a full-service HVAC provider for some of the best-known brands in their categories.
