  • Leading due diligence and integration of privately held companies being acquired by a public company in the commercial HVAC industry

The Mechanical Insight Consulting Difference:

There are many consultants out there, offering their services on how to improve your business, but how many have actually successfully operated an HVAC contracting company?  I know what it takes to successfully build, operate, and sell a commercial/industrial HVAC service firm, because I have done it first hand.  The success of my company (Aircond Corporation) was nationally recognized by Contracting Business Magazine by awarding us its coveted Commercial Contractor of the Year award.

If you are interested in buying a company or selling yours, I have been on both sides of the street.  I successfully sold my company in 2000 and know how to handle the transition to new ownership.  I worked for EMCOR leading their acquistion effort for the Mechanical Servces Division, evaluating over 100 companies nationwide.  I know what the "buyers" are looking for and I can help you position your company to maximize the return on all your hard work over the years. I get paid when and if you get paid, so there is almost zero risk for you.
