1963 - 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.

The owner of Bennett Mechanical Services, Inc., Mike Lewis, started as a Sales representative in 1989, moving into the General Manager position in 1991, and has owned the company since 1996. The Vice President, Paul Nichols, has been with the company since 1991, beginning as the Purchasing Manager before becoming the Vice President and Controller in 1992.

The Service Manager, Lou Van Meter, has been in the HVAC industry for 3 decades, and has served as the Service Manager since 1994. The lead technicians, John Amen, Svend Knudsen, and Jim Skidmore, have all been with the company, respectively, since 1988, 1991, and 1993. All of our technicians are factory trained in the many facets of HVAC, with advanced training in building automation, controls, and chiller applications.

Bennett Mechanical Services, Inc. looks forward to continuing its long tradition of providing solutions to our clients' needs, exceeding expectations, and meeting the challenges of a changing building and facility maintenance environment.
