- A country mourns a President, gas was about 31 cents per gallon,
the Redskins limped to a 3-11-0 record with Norm Snead as quarterback,
and the Bennett Service Company came into existence, providing air
conditioning service and repair to commercial concerns in the Washington
D.C. metropolitan area.
In the ensuing 46 years, we've seen 9 more Presidents, gas prices
have settled to around $3.00 a gallon, and the Redskins have won
3 World Championships. The company has grown and changed along with
the entire Washington, D.C. area, and is known today as Bennett
Mechanical Services, Inc. We've witnessed a few recessions, some
local building expansions and contractions, and the transformation
of the working world.
Today, Bennett Mechanical Services, Inc. provides not only heating
and air conditioning installation and service, but also light plumbing
and electrical service, control work, chiller installation and service,
building automation, and total facility maintenance services to
commercial and industrial concerns in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
