WAUKESHA, Wis. — SMART Local 18 and SMACNA Wisconsin announced the launch of Breathe Easy Wisconsin.
“One of our mechanical contractors said it best — your HVAC system is the face mask of your building, and that’s the perfect way to describe it,” said Jonathan Kowalski, Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ Association (SMACNA) executive director. “By partnering with union labor and SMART Local 18, we know we’re bringing the best trained, most safety conscious and most technologically current workforce to every jobsite. Had it not been for the Local 18 leadership and their desire to capture more work and create better environments for the people of Wisconsin, the association would never have been able to do this program on its own.”
“Indoor air quality is the work of the sheet metal industry,” said Mike Mooney, president and business manager of SMART Local 18. “We’re trained in it, we have certifications in it, and we seemed like the natural choice when solutions were being sought to combat the virus. Clean air is just as important as clean water — you want to be sure the air you’re breathing is pure. Customers who invest in Breathe Easy Wisconsin solutions are proving that they’re invested not only in clean air, but also the safety of their building occupants.”
