Albert Nahmad, Watsco’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated: “2012 was an excellent year for Watsco. We continued our expansion into international markets, which now account for 16% of sales and we believe represent an important source of growth for Watsco in the future. Domestically, we generated sales growth and gained market share in both residential and commercial HVAC equipment markets and began to see a lift in sales of HVAC supplies as residential new construction is emerging in our markets. We expect 2013 to be another record year.”
