Message from the President
The Intech Mechanical team consists of expert project management, estimating and design departments, along with our highly trained field personnel. Together, we deliver the final product to our clients in a timely and professional manner. With this extensive experience in the marketplace, we understand the needs of our clients, from the inception of a project, all the way through commissioning and warranty. Going into projects with the client’s perspective, helps us focus on meeting their requirements, just as we would want ours met. As a mid-sized contractor, our clients benefit by working directly with one of the decision-makers, versus a lower tiered employee, who may not be as interested in the project outcome.
