ATLANTA — ABM Industries Inc. announced that Mechanical Systems Co. LLC has signed a franchise agreement to join its Linc Service franchise network. Mechanical Systems Co. is a leading provider of mechanical contracting services in Memphis, Tennessee.

“Mechanical Systems Co. began as a construction company. Our clients were so pleased with our work that they asked us to provide them with mechanical services as well. We knew professional mechanical services were necessary, but, never having performed these services ourselves, were not sure how to begin offering them. Being a part of the Linc Service network gives our company a proven resource with a defined blueprint to enhance and grow our mechanical services,” said Chris Claude, executive vice president of Mechanical Systems Co.

Founded in 2007, Mechanical Systems Co. is a licensed mechanical and plumbing contractor that works with design-build, negotiated, and plan and spec projects for commercial and industrial clients. The company focuses on creating value-driven mechanical solutions through design, engineering, construction, and energy efficiency. It provides services from pre-planning through installation and commissioning. The company now plans on expanding its commercial HVAC services department to provide full-coverage preventive maintenance services using Linc Service’s tools and processes.

“I am excited to welcome Mechanical Systems Co. to the Linc Service network. The company has already proven itself as a leader in the construction and mechanical services industry. We look forward to helping them expand their business by incorporating new technologies and tools that will deliver even more client value,” said Bert Kendall, chief operating officer of ABM Franchising Group.

Mechanical Systems Co. will operate under the Linc Service franchise brand of ABM Franchising Group, which specializes in meeting the mechanical service needs of commercial and industrial clients. ABM Franchising Group offers a portfolio of franchise networks that deliver mechanical and electrical service and preventive maintenance solutions to commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. ABM Franchising Group consists of three franchise brands: Linc Service, GreenHomes America, and TEGG.
