October 06, 2018

HB McClure logoHB McClure Company, LLC, a Harrisburg-based heating, plumbing, and electrical service provider, has announced two recent mergers. Accu-Aire Mechanical Services, Inc., a Lancaster-based commercial HVAC contractor, and its engineering division, MMG Engineering LLC, have joined the company’s growing team. And, BBEC, Inc., a Mechanicsburg, PA-based electrical contractor, has also joined the company’s team.

According to Jim Saussaman, president of HB McClure, the merger with Accu-Aire is a big step in the company’s long-term growth strategy. “We already serve many Lancaster county clients, and this now gives us an opportunity to enhance that offering even more with a fully-staffed, ‘brick and mortar’ presence in West Hempfield Township. We welcome the mechanical system design/build and technical service skill-sets that the Accu-Aire team brings to the table.”

Accu-Aire was founded in 1994 and has extensive experience in the design, construction, renovation, and servicing of commercial HVAC systems throughout Central Pennsylvania. In addition, Accu-Aire provides preventative maintenance for numerous commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities in the region. MMG Engineering was founded in 2009 to provide quality HVAC, electrical, and plumbing design services to architects, owners, and contractors.

Dale Graybill, Don Huber, and Mark Graybill, owners of Accu-Aire, see this as an excellent opportunity for growth since HB McClure has a similar vision of striving to deliver high-quality work and build lasting relationships with clients. It is also a benefit for their employees as they become ESOP employee-owners and have additional training and advancement opportunities.For more information about Accu-Aire, visit www.accu-aire.com.

Jim Saussaman, says that the merger with BBEC is part of the company’s long-term strategy for growth. “We’ve worked closely with BBEC on many projects over the years, and we see this arrangement as a great way to enhance our mechanical, electrical, and plumbing offerings to our commercial and industrial clients for both service and construction needs. We believe that our past relationship, plus the fact that we are both employee-owned ESOP companies, will help this be a seamless transition. BBEC’s electrical design/build capabilities will dovetail nicely with our own PHVAC design/build approach.”

Mark Nelson, president of BBEC says there is a very strong alignment of culture between the two firms. “We are very delighted to join the HB McClure team because we both like to provide our clients the best possible value while taking care of our employee-owners. I am excited for the future as we all grow our business.”

Established in 1984, BBEC has been serving the electrical construction and service needs of commercial clients for 34 years. They have expertise in lighting and power distribution as well as communication/data/alarm systems. For more information about BBEC, visit www.bbecinc.com.
