hilmor Names Fastest Hands in HVAC/R at the AHR Expo 2023
In a flurry of deburring, swaging, bending and flaring, one HVAC/R technician rose to the top of the leaderboard during this year’s Fastest Hands in HVAC/R contest held during the AHR Convention in Atlanta, GA.
Francois Goletto, a technician from Decatur GA, with George Gary Mechanical Design, was sitting in first place out of hundreds of competitors after the several different rounds of competition, in which ended up with taking a copper tube and making two 90 degree bends in the opposite direction and then using a hilmor Lineset Cleaner to shot a rubber plug into a target and hit the bullseye.
Goletto completed the final task the fastest, and received the top prize, $1,000 worth of hilmor tools. The other top finishers included Samuel Friedman, who received a $500 prize. Pinkas Bruer and Stan Axvier each received a $250 prize.
