HVAC/R Distributor Cooperative
BLUE HAWK WAS FOUNDED TO MAXIMIZE THE STRENGTH OF INDEPENDENT HVAC/R DISTRIBUTORS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.
BLUE HAWK members distribute a wide range of HVAC/R related products to the residential and commercial construction trades.
BLUE HAWK was established to ensure the survival and growth of the independent HVAC/R distributor. The existence of BLUE HAWK allows independent businesses to use their combined purchasing power to attain competitive pricing for the goods and services they use. At a time when the relentless expansion of manufacturer-owned distributor networks and large corporation-owned distributor chains is intensifying, independently owned operations have turned to BLUE HAWK to help level the playing field with these large competitors.
BLUE HAWK Members benefit from far more than purchasing power alone. They benefit from other services available through cooperative membership such as improved marketing channels, public relations, lobbying efforts, educational and training programs, networking opportunities, sharing of best business practices, and technology support.

Message From Our CEO
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about BLUE HAWK and IMARK Group.
BLUE HAWK was formed because five family-owned businesses believed that independent businesses have an important place in America. Independent businesses need to be preserved and protected. This group believed in the strength of community and decided to launch a member-owned cooperative to help bind independents together.
Since the beginning, BLUE HAWK has had explosive growth and is now the largest wholesaler entity in the HVAC/R industry. Today, we have more than 200 Member companies with over 1,700 locations, 12,000 employees, and $8 billion in sales.
BLUE HAWK sets itself apart by being 100% financially transparent. Not only does BLUE HAWK return 100% of the co-op’s new earnings, but we are also genuinely transparent about all rebates, terms and conditions, and overhead expenses. We give our Members fully audited financial statement, not just a quarterly rebate report. There is no hidden agenda or undisclosed costs at BLUE HAWK.
If you’re interested in joining the largest and most trusted co-op in America, please contact us. The BLUE HAWK staff is ready to help you compete, thrive and prosper today and into the future
GO WITH BLUE!
