ISS Insulation Services and Solutions, a full-service mechanical insulation contractor specializing in both commercial and industrial markets, celebrates the first-year anniversary and success of its partnership and mentoring with Lou Brock Mechanical, a commercial HVAC contractor serving the St. Louis metropolitan area for the past three years. The partnership is mutually beneficial for both organizations to work on projects where their combined service portfolios offer more complete, comprehensive solutions for their customer base.

“Lou Brock Mechanical’s vision, culture and commitment to the St. Louis community aligns seamlessly with our company,” said Nick Eaton, general manager at ISS Insulation Services & Solutions. “Due to this strategic decision, ISS has been able to advance and grow our business in new markets while maintaining its quality of output, productivity and safety.”

This past year, Lou Brock Mechanical and ISS Insulation Services and Solutions completed two major projects including the Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Peters, and they are currently working together on projects for both the University of Missouri – St. Louis and Scottrade, among others in the healthcare and education industries. In the past 6 months, the two organizations have picked up six new jobs with high-profile clients, exceeding the expectations of both companies.

“The mentorship aspect of our partnership works because we both want the best service for our customers, and our success is due, in part, to our diverse workforce,” said Lou Brock, Jr., president of Lou Brock Mechanical. “Thanks to this partnership with a 100-year-old company, Lou Brock Mechanical is gaining a true knowledge transfer, mitigating some of our risk as we grow individually, and obtaining valuable experience working on large-scale mechanical insulation projects.”

The two contractors consider the partnership a success and plan to continue working together and providing their customers with the top-quality installation services of mechanical insulation and HVAC systems.
