KENNEWICK, Wash. - Apollo Mechanical Contractors has acquired the assets associated with Kinetic Systems Inc.’s Northwest operations. According to Apollo, this acquisition will increase its capabilities in high purity piping and fabrication/installation and specialty equipment throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Kinetics will finish work on all current Kinetics contracts and work to facilitate the transition to Apollo in the Northwest as the current work is completed. Bob Hightower, vice president for Apollo Mechanical Contractors, said, “This move will establish Apollo as a premier, full mechanical contracting company, allowing us to better serve the industrial clients in the northwest Oregon/southwest Washington marketplace.”

Following completion of the transition, Kinetics will focus on its California, Southwest, Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and international operations. Additionally, the parties intend to explore potential opportunities to work together on projects where the individual skill sets of each entity complement one another.

Apollo Mechanical Contractors specializes in mechanical construction, facilities management, and energy conservation projects for correctional facilities, hospitals, laboratories, schools, and industrial facilities. Apollo employs over 500 people with offices in Kennewick, Wash., Seattle, Spokane, Wash., and Portland, Ore., and has annual revenues of over $200 million.
