Elk Grove Village, IL ‘ March 2011 ‘ LA-CO Industries, Inc., a leader in specialty plumbing and HVAC chemicals for over 75 years, wanted to engage visitors at this year’s AHR Expo by showing the company’s appreciation for their visit to the booth with opportunities to win prizes.  LA-CO presented four 2011 AHR Expo attendees with prizes for visiting the LA-CO booth during the show held in late January.  Each day, while at the trade show, visitors were encouraged to stop by the LA-CO booth and scan their badge to be entered in a daily drawing.  LA-CO awarded three winners with new iPods, while one Grand Prize winner, chosen after the show’s conclusion, received an iPad.
