The AHR Expo is in Dallas for the week, but Kahn Mechanical Contractors has always made this city its home. The company was purchased in 1974 by Fred and Ann Kahn; and in 1989 the latter took over the nearly bankrupt company as president. Mechanical has since moved back into the black and is reaching new levels as a commercial contractor.
No week is typical as the company services everything from small rooftop units on retail stores to chillers in central plants. In the past several years, Kahn Mechanical has taken on more public work and worship facilities — two areas Ann Kahn noted they wouldn’t have even considered in the company’s early history, but has since acknowledged that both were well worth the effort.
