Losing Employees to COVID-19?

You Can Still Dominate Your Marketplace

Before anyone had heard of COVID-19, the HVAC industry was in the grips of a growing labor shortage. From estimators to installers, finding the next generation of technicians and laborers was the talk of the industry.

Today, sick workers, quarantined employees, and potential talent sidelined by the fear of getting sick, all leading to work shortages that delay projects and stall construction.

That’s why, at ZEN Industries, we do all we can to optimize HVAC duct acquisition and installation. We’re far more than a quality duct fabricator. We want to help you dominate your marketplace, even in the age of COVID-19.


Ductwork in warehouse, ready to go.Where other duct fabricators supply the duct you order, at ZEN Industries, we start with superior quality ductwork and then step up the game by offering services we call The ZEN Way.

  • The end result? The ZEN Way can save you up to 35% in costs and is a 100% better process. Most importantly, it allows you to optimize labor resources and talent in the age of COVID-19.
  • A better way to layout and install. Using our advanced Coordination Drawing and Shop Drawing Capability, we build out the entire ductwork installation in a highly precise virtual model.
  • When your duct arrives onsite, everything is numbered and goes together with the precision of a perfectly engineered puzzle. Saves hundreds of hours of Field Measuring and Sketching Labor (FMSL).
  • Maximizing human capital. With all duct and fittings labeled and numbered, you use less expensive labor to get the shakeout done, saving up to $15/hour.
  • With The ZEN Way, your PM, Superintendent, or Foreman saves time, the time of an experienced key employee who can now manage additional projects, adding to your bottom line.

Altogether, The ZEN Way has been honed through years of experience and field proven to save between 25% and 35% over traditional HVAC duct acquisition and installation.
