COLUMBUS, OH –John W. Danforth Company, one of the largest mechanical contractors in the northeast, has officially opened a new office in the Columbus area. It is Danforth’s sixth regional office and its first located in Ohio.
The opening of the Columbus office, which is located at 5532 Shier-Rings Road in Dublin, continues Danforth’s strategic growth, and was predicated on the growing number of projects the company has worked on in the area over the last few years, including two large data center projects.
“We’re thrilled to continue building on Danforth’s history and tradition by cementing our presence in the Columbus region,” said Danforth CEO Robert Beck. “We have built outstanding relationships with our project partners. I am confident that, by focusing on our commitment to our customers, our people, and our core principles, we will continue to succeed and grow in this market.”
The new Columbus office is being led by Jason Strickle, Vice President and Market Sales Manager, who has over 25 years’ mechanical industry experience, including projects with clients such as The Ohio State University, the Veterans Administration, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and others.
“In working with the Danforth team over the years, I know the impressive commitment to quality they bring to every facet of every project,” Strickle said. “I am happy to be part of that team and help the company expand our reach throughout Central Ohio.”
Founded in Buffalo, New York in 1884, Danforth has more than 1,000 employees companywide. The company works collaboratively with its union labor partners including the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation (SMART) Workers, and several other labor partners across many local union jurisdictions throughout the northeast and beyond. Danforth operates an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, giving the company’s workforce an ownership stake in the company. Earlier this year, Danforth was chosen by Contractor magazine, a leading national industry publication, as its “Contractor of the Year.”
