We Have a Big History. Be Part of our Bright Future. 


Williams Distributing Co. & Shoemaker Inc. Heating and Cooling Supply, a Division of Williams, are distribution powerhouses for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and residential building products in the Great Lakes region. In January of 2023, we were acquired by Daikin Comfort Technologies North America, Inc. (Daikin). With Williams’ territory covering a significant portion of the Midwest, this strategic acquisition supports Daikin’s vision to expand.

As a company, we continuously strive to improve living environments through products and services that benefit our customers’ lives. But we don’t stop there. Every day, we aim to create the kind of innovation that inspires a new generation of customers. It requires the imagination and persistence of bright people who lean into challenges—and are ready to test themselves on every level.

At Daikin, the cornerstone of our corporate philosophy is all about harnessing the potential of our people. Discover how we can help you find yours.
