CHICAGO — Two Chicago mechanical contractors, Exelon Services Midwest Mechanical and Exelon Services VA Smith, have combined operations to form Exelon Services Mechanical Group.

The merger expands the firm’s capabilities in mechanical construction, preventive maintenance and emergency repair services, and enhances its reputation in the HVAC industry, according to the company.

“Even though the name and the look may be changing, one thing that will not change is our commitment to satisfying the customer,” said Greg Uher, president of Exelon Services Mechanical Group. “There is no doubt in my mind that the combined talent of our two companies puts us at the top of the Chicago marketplace.”

VA Smith, founded in 1909, started out fabricating ductwork by hand and hauling sheet metal by horse-drawn wagons. It has worked to build its reputation through three generations and the recent ownership of Exelon.

For more than 28 years, Midwest Mechanical’s mission has been to be the recognized leader and contractor of choice in providing innovative and cost-effective solutions to its customers’ HVAC and building operation needs.

The service division of Exelon Services Mechanical Group specializes in preventive maintenance agreements for heating, air conditioning, refrigeration and electrical systems. Its combined construction division provides building owners and general contractors design and engineering capabilities, sheet metal fabrication and installation, piping installation, retrofit alternatives and system upgrades, as well as project management.
