WALDWICK, N.J. — Armistead Mechanical Inc., a provider of mechanical construction, engineering, and contracting services throughout the New Jersey/New York area, announced that Joseph Jerkowski, P.E., vice president of operations, has been named to the board of directors of the Construction Contractors Association of New York’s Hudson Valley.

The Construction Contractors Association of Hudson Valley is a 50-year-old trade association of commercial and industrial building contractors and construction support services in Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Ulster, Rockland, Putnam, Sullivan, Columbia, and Greene counties. Over the past five decades, its members have played leading roles in nearly all Hudson Valley construction projects. Its mission is to connect owners with contractors with demonstrated abilities to complete projects on-time and within budget, and to provide contractors with resources, skills, and support to help stay competitive.

In his role with Armistead Mechanical, Jerkowski manages all operations of the company’s Hudson Valley office in Newburgh, N.Y., including project estimation, planning, and management. He also oversees Armistead Mechanical’s UA prefabrication shop, which assembles certain materials and components prior to their arrival onsite — a process that can significantly reduce project labor costs.

Jerkowski, who has more than 25 years of construction design and management experience, joined Armistead Mechanical in 1994 and has held several positions with the company. He became vice president of operations in 2007.

“All of us at Armistead Mechanical take pride in Joseph’s appointment to the Hudson Valley CCA,” said Kevin Armistead, chief operating officer of Armistead Mechanical. “He will be a worthy addition to that prestigious organization, and will showcase our company’s willingness to be a team player as we continue to move Hudson Valley forward.”

Armistead Mechanical provides expertise in industrial/process piping, fabrication and installation, plumbing, HVAC design/installation, temperature controls, and preventive maintenance services for projects of all sizes. For more information, visit www.armisteadmechanical.com.
