TOTAL Mechanical, Inc. today announced that it has acquired key operating divisions of Tri-Cor Mechanical, LLC. Tri-Cor was originally established in 1977 and is located in Janesville Wisconsin. TOTAL Mechanical will assume operational control immediately. The terms of the sale are not being disclosed.

“I am pleased about the tremendous opportunities this acquisition provides for our employees and the employees of Tri-Cor Mechanical,” said Dennis J. Braun, President and CEO of TOTAL Mechanical. Tri-Cor has a long-standing tradition of being a high-quality mechanical contractor, and we are excited to be able to strengthen Tri-Cor with the addition of TOTAL Mechanical’s hard-working team of experienced professionals.”

TOTAL Mechanical was established in 1968 and is a mechanical contracting firm specializing in the design, installation and services of commercial and residential HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical and Fire Protection systems as well as mechanical systems that support industrial and manufacturing processes. With the acquisition of Tri-Cor TOTAL Mechanical now has approximately 300 employees, including more than 230 skilled trade workers representing seven area labor unions – Sheet Metal Workers Local 18, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 494, Plumbers Local 75, Sprinkler Fitters Locals 183 and 669, Steamfitters Local 601, and Racine/Kenosha Steamfitters/Plumbers Local 118.

Patricia Murphy, President and Owner of Tri-Cor Mechanical stated, “In considering selling to another Mechanical contractor, there were two equally important objectives for Tri-Cor – employee opportunity and uninterrupted service to our customers. Selling to TOTAL greatly exceeds both of these objectives. TOTAL Mechanical has the vision, leadership and the resources to continue Tri-Cor’s spirit. TOTAL Mechanical is strongly grounded by commitments to customer service and employee success through ethical business practices – the same key elements that Tri-Cor values.”

This acquisition marks the sixth major acquisition for TOTAL Mechanical since 2002. Braun stated, “We believe this is a sound business decision that fits our strategic plan that calls for a blend of organic growth, growth by acquisition, and continued diversification of the services we offer. The acquisition of Tri-Cor enables TOTAL Mechanical to expand their geographical footprint with an established, experienced group of professionals. This acquisition will enhance our ability to design, build and service with the same attention to detail and focus on quality that our customers have come to expect. As with previous acquisitions, we are pleased to be able to bring so many talented individuals together.”
