Manhattan Mechanical Services is celebrating its 10th year in operation, earning the title as Chicagoland's largest merit shop mechanical services contractor. Manhattan Mechanical prides itself as a low-overhead, high-productivity company, providing clients with multi-craft professionals trained to maintain the highest safety, efficiency, integrity and quality standards. This team of highly skilled craftsmen offers services in industrial maintenance, process piping, structural steel, equipment installation, scaffolding, and insulation.
Manhattan Mechanical President Mike Uremovich had previously owned an international mechanical contracting company that served the oil industry, which he later sold in 2010. During what turned out to be a brief retirement, Uremovich volunteered to step into the role of national chairman for the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), a national construction industry trade association representing more than 21,000 members.
After spending a year as a leading spokesperson of merit shop construction, Uremovich hit upon the idea to establish a merit shop industrial mechanical contracting company in 2011. He and his team began shaping the company now known as Manhattan Mechanical Services. Since October 2011, Manhattan Mechanical has experienced astronomical growth. From a mere 15 employees, the merit shop contractor now consists of almost 200 personnel, ranging from support staff to multi-skilled craftsmen. However, according to Uremovich, the growth of the company is reflected not only in its business endeavors, but also in the camaraderie of the Manhattan Mechanical team.
"I believe the key to our success and longevity is that our company is a big family and a cohesive team," Uremovich said. "Everybody is pulling for the common good of the team as a whole. Manhattan Mechanical invests in its people with our NCCER apprenticeship program and leadership-development programs. We invest more in our people than any other contractor in our industry."
