Hetter Heating & Cooling is so proud to have been selected for an unprecedented SECOND time as a recipient of the Torch Award for Ethics. Hetter is one of only two companies to win the award twice, having done so for the first time in 2010. EE Ward Moving & Storage is the only other two time winner.
“We accept this award again not only with great pride & enthusiasm but with great responsibility to all our customers & future customers who select us for their HVAC needs,” says Hetter owner & president John Hetterscheidt. “We are excited to be our industry’s only two time winner.”
The BBB launched the Torch Awards program in 1994 to recognize businesses who are intentionally pursuing the highest standards or organizational ethics. Hetter was one of only three companies to win the award in 2016 all of whom were featured in a 16-page story on in the November edition of Columbus CEO Magazine.
Hetter won our first Torch Award in 2010 in – at that time – what was the most contested category for companies (50 employees or less). A panel of judges selected the winning organizations based on six ethical enterprising criteria and based on demonstrating a high level of trust among their employees, customers and their communities.

"These Torch Award recipients clearly demonstrated with their entries superior character on a daily basis while consistently exceeding marketplace standards for ethics in their relationships with customers, employees, suppliers, industry peers and the communities in which they do business,” said Kip Morse, President of the Better Business Bureau.”
