About the Owners

As a first-generation immigrant, he was always passionate about working with his hands and construction. After high school, he joined Local 597 Pipefitter's Union, starting as an apprentice working his way up to foreman roles for union companies.
Eager to understand the business aspect of construction, Manny pursued a degree while working full time, graduating from Roosevelt University with Bachelors's in Business. After obtaining his degree and working 10 years as a Pipefitter, Manny transitioned to Project Manager roles managing large-scale projects for various public and private clients throughout Chicago.
After years of construction experience, Manny identified a need for a minority-owned mechanical construction business that delivers high-quality service and craftsmanship. As a Chicago resident, Manny understands and values the critical role construction has in contributing to the economic and aesthetic development of our city. His high touch work ethic (both on and off the field) ensures every detail of a project is completed to perfection.
