Thank You, Steve Norberg!

On January 4, Mulcahy bid farewell to a fixture in the engineering community. Steve Norberg dedicated decades of his career working for engineering firms including Erickson Ellison, Dunham, and KFI. His work emphasis was on school and healthcare projects in the state of Minnesota, along with work at the airport for many years. At Mulcahy, he continued that work in the design and support of HVAC systems for over six years to the benefit of the engineers, contractors, and facilities with whom he worked. He built lasting relationships in organizations like the Minnesota Educational Facilities Management Professionals and the Minnesota Healthcare Engineers Association. Head to one of their conferences with him and you won’t get two feet before he stops to great someone with a familiar smile.

On behalf of Mulcahy, we want to thank Steve for his years of service in the engineering community.

Steve plans to do some warm-weather travel with his wife Ivonne, and keep up on his poker game at Running Aces. Don’t be surprised to see him around in the fall when conference season heats up. We wish Steve well in his well-deserved retirement. Congratulations, Steve!

Meet Our Newest Manufacturing Partner – Industry Leader Lochinvar

MLCY-Lochinvar Banner

On behalf of Mulcahy’s principals and owners, it is with much excitement that we announce our newest manufacturing partner, Lochinvar. Lochinvar enters their 80th year of business in 2019. Their mission to provide energy efficient heating solutions to the market, drive for constant improvement and product development, and vision toward their people with their clear statement that, “At the heart of our success are Lochinvar people…,” almost completely mirrors Mulcahy’s core values. Mulcahy and Lochinvar are like-minded businesses, and it is those core values that we have no doubt will serve our customers for years to come.

As a result of this change, we will be working to transition out of the relationships with the Mestek brands of boilers and Viessmann. We look forward to expanding our business across all of our product lines as we embark in this new direction with a broader portfolio of products and services.

Thank you for your continued business. More information will be distributed in the coming weeks. Please feel free to contact us with any questions related to technical matters, buying, or quoting.

Ambassadors of Fun

TWP-full

The past few months at Mulcahy have been filled with exciting news and events!

Our inaugural Walk the Pond event was a huge success! Six teams competed to complete the most laps in six weeks. While The Green Machines won, all teams enjoyed several happy hours, potlucks, plant night, and Cheesy Poof Olympics with Greg G. taking the crown.

Mulcahy employees also took part in charitable work. Volunteers had a blast clearing out invasive plant species at Hidden Falls Regional Park, and we collected seven large boxes of school supplies for the School Supply Drive for Keystone, helping many children at the start of the school year.

One of our most exciting announcements – Mulcahy was named one of Minnesota’s Top 150 places to work by Star Tribune! We celebrated with a pig roast. It was a day filled with lots of eating, a bags tournament, and a scavenger hunt.

Coming soon:

  • Company service directory (services, contractors, etc. recommended by our employees)
  • Food shelf volunteer opportunity
  • Chili cook-off
  • Halloween costume contest

Stay tuned to learn more!
