Two EMCOR Facilities Services Companies Join Together to Provide Enhanced HVAC Capabilities for Clients
ASTORIA, NY - February 19, 2007 - As part of an on-going strategy to provide the highest level of quality service possible and continue delivering services that positively impact clients' bottom line, EMCOR Services Trimech, located in Pompton Plains, NJ and EMCOR Services Gotham Air Conditioning, based in Astoria, NY, have combined operations.The combined companies, which represent over 60 years of experience in servicing and managing facilities for clients, will be known as EMCOR Services NY/NJ and will be headquartered in Astoria. The company is a subsidiary EMCOR Group, Inc., a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses globally.
Frank Cooney, previously President and CEO of EMCOR Services Gotham Air Conditioning has been appointed President and CEO of the combined companies. According to Mr. Cooney, the overriding goal of the new structure is to enable EMCOR Services NY/NJ to provide clients with exceptional performance.
"Combining our technical workforce and mobile services operations enables the two EMCOR companies to provide significantly enhanced customer service," he explained. "The new structure will benefit clients like Grubb and Ellis, the real estate giant for which Gotham has been servicing over a million square feet in New Jersey, as well as clients such as Adams & Company, Steinberg & Pokoik and NYU Medical, which will benefit in the design/build aspect of our business due to the increased engineering capabilities that combining the operations of Trimech and Gotham provides. Trimech clients such as Bergman Real Estate and Cendant will also benefit from the new operating structure through access to enhanced technical capabilities and broader coverage by service personnel."
While the service departments as well as the back offices of Gotham and Trimech have been combined into the New York location, EMCOR Services NY/NJ continues to maintain separate project operations in each state. A primary focus of the Pompton Plains, NJ group remains on process piping, engineering and construction for large pharmaceutical companies; a key focus in Astoria continues to be design-build of air conditioning systems and interior fit-outs for Class A building tenants.
In his new position, Mr. Cooney is responsible for establishing the firm's strategic direction as well as the realization of its tactical implementation plans. He brings over 20 years of experience in mechanical contracting and facilities management to the new business entity. Having started at Gotham beginning in 1985 as a parts driver, he has held a series of senior management positions of increasing responsibility, including Contract Sales Manager, Service Manager, Vice President of Operations and Secretary Treasurer, before assuming the role of President of EMCOR Services NY/NJ.
