The Winning Combination: Quality + Caleffi Excellence


The perfect win-win situation!  Intent on providing customers with the best and most economical heating and renewable solutions in the market, Steiner Plumbing, Electric & Heating (River Falls, Wis.) with assistance from J.H. Larson (Hayward, Wis.) delivers the winning combination.  A 40-unit Community Based Residential Facility radiant floor design submitted by Paul Steiner is the grand prize entry in the fourth quarter of the “Caleffi Excellence” contest.  The year-long contest is a platform where designers of hydronic or plumbing systems can showcase their work using Caleffi products.

The top four contestants, as determined by most audited votes received from the public, were presented with an iPad™ mini.  Mr. Steiner, the grand prize winner, has won a trip to Italy to see Caleffi World Headquarters and will receive a personalized tour of our factories and design facilities. His entry was selected from a panel of industry experts and Caleffi executives.

Congratulations to the remaining finalists:  Coffey Plumbing & Heating (Arthur, Ont.), Comfort Plumbing & Heating (Edison, N.J.) and D.R. Kohlman, Inc. (St. Cloud, Wis.).

Back by popular demand, the Excellence contest continues in September with winners announced monthly instead of quarterly. Stay tuned by visiting
