Two major mechanical contractors combine operations in Twin Cities

Two leading Twin Cities-based mechanical contracting companies – Metropolitan Mechanical Contractors (MMC) and Doody Mechanical – have combined operations under the MMC name to provide customers with a variety of benefits, including broader regional support, new technologies and streamlined design.

Both companies are subsidiaries of APi Group Inc., which owns 13 construction companies in Minnesota and 36 others across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Collaborating with other APi Group subsidiaries, the new MMC will continue to serve Midwest customers, while undertaking larger, national projects previously considered out of scope for either company independently.

“MMC and Doody Mechanical are two well-respected mechanical contracting companies, so the combination has been a natural transition,” said Russell Becker [link opens as pdf], APi Group CEO and president. “Both customer-centric organizations fit well together culturally, and we look forward to offering our customers an expanded portfolio of services including geothermal system installations and our Service Direct program.”

Eden Prairie, Minn.-based MMC specializes in building information modeling, which uses multidimensional computer models to identify and resolve construction issues in the design phase. This specialty is critical in helping building owners complete projects on time and budget.

The combined operation will work under the leadership of Mark Anderson, president of the former MMC. Jim Torborg [link opens as pdf], president of St. Paul, Minn.-based Doody Mechanical, will assist with the transition of the newly merged company, and will focus on his responsibilities as president of LeJeune Steel, another APi Group company.

The MMC headquarters will remain in Eden Prairie. All non-field employees – including those previously with Doody Mechanical – are located there. The sheet metal shop will operate out of Doody’s location in St. Paul.
