Evansville HVAC Boiler Chiller
Starting from scratch in the mechanical service business isn’t easy. Seven years ago, Alpha Energy Solutions made a strategic decision to launch Evansville HVAC Boiler Chiller – a new operation in Evansville with the intention of covering southwestern Indiana.
Mike Hyde, now the general foreman of an operation that numbers 50 workers, remembers when there were just a couple Alpha employees there. He says the phenomenal growth of the Evansville office is attributable to great support from the Louisville headquarters and a strong team of technicians, many of whom have been there for at least five years. “We get great support from Louisville that helps us to find the kind of work we’re capable of doing,” Hyde said. “We’ve had a record year in 2014 thanks to the efforts of our sales team and excellent mechanics who take pride in what they do.” The Evansville office has spun off two departments — one at a nearby boiler plant and another at an industrial plant 20 miles down the road. In addition, Alpha’s Evansville clients include industrial plants, medical facilities and several school systems. Gerry Lewis, sales director for Alpha, said the Evansville operation paved the way for the company’s growth in other markets. “We were able to develop a strategy based on our success in Evansville,” Lewis said. “Now we’ve duplicated that success in West Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana, allowing Alpha to become one of the largest self-performing service providers in the Midwest.”
