ABM Franchising Group announced that Kleeberg Mechanical Services signed a franchise agreement to join its Linc Service franchise network.

Since 1999, Kleeberg Mechanical Services has provided building automation, HVAC market ductwork fabrication, mechanical piping, specialty metal fabrication and design-build projects to clients in commercial, industrial and retail markets in Ludlow, Massachusetts, and Ballston Spa, New York.

“Linc Service is the next step in our journey of continuous improvement,” said Scott Cushman, president of Kleeberg Mechanical Services and its parent company Kleeberg Sheet Metal. “We are excited to partner with a group who shares our values and is enthusiastic about promoting sales cultures.”

Kleeberg Mechanical Services employs 180 workers and has plans to expand its workforce since joining Linc Service. The company said it also plans to offer guaranteed maintenance contracts to its clients.

“It is our goal to grow our service department in the western Massachusetts and New York capital regions exponentially in volume and quality,” Cushman said. “Our success has always come from the character of the people we choose to employ and the quality of our business partners we collaborate with. We have three simple core values: teamwork, leadership development and customer service.”

ABM Franchising Group, a subsidiary of AMB Industries Inc., offers two franchise brands — Linc Service and Tegg — which deliver maintenance solutions to commercial and industrial buildings. Linc Service specializes in mechanical services.

“We are very pleased to welcome Kleeberg Mechanical Services to the Linc Service network,” said Bert Kendall, senior vice president of ABM Franchising Group. “I am confident that by incorporating Linc Service’s best practices, proven growth strategy and customized training in exclusive technologies and tools will help propel Kleeberg Mechanical Services to outstanding employee growth and client value.”
