Pewaukee, WI – November 1, 2016 –The Company announced today that it has formed a new entity, AGI LLC.
The Company also announced that it has acquired AG Industries/Winkler Blast Gates LLC a metal fabrication business that manufactures regenerative thermal oxidizers, blast gates, ball joints, nozzles and custom metal products. AG Industries was originally established in 1893 as Alfred Goethel Sheet Metal Company. The acquisition complements TOTAL Mechanical’s commercial and industrial shop fabrication capabilities.
The Company plans to relocate its existing commercial and industrial shop fabrication division to the newly acquired business at 4480 N. 124th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The new AGI team will combine former AG Industries employees as well as several TOTAL employees who will serve commercial and industrial customers throughout Wisconsin and all of North America (including the US, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico).
TOTAL Mechanical, headquartered in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, is privately-owned by Dennis J. Braun, President and CEO. “We are excited about this opportunity to expand our manufacturing capabilities through this acquisition,” Braun said.
“Transferring our industrial manufacturing capabilities to AGI, allows Total to focus on and expand its core business units which consist of its Commercial HVAC, Industrial, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Electrical, Environmental Services and Residential Divisions. TOTAL Mechanical will continue to provide our customers with the same level of superior service and total satisfaction,” promises Braun.
The Company also announced the promotion of Thomas J. Jacobi to Vice President and General Manager of the newly formed entity. Tom started his career with Winkler 40 years ago and has spent the last 20 years helping build the Industrial Division at Total Mechanical. “This acquisition allows us to add to our talented team of metal fabricators and significantly enhance our offerings to our customers.” Jacobi said.
The complete transition will be finished later this year, and until that time, operations at both organizations will remain the same. The terms of the sale are not being disclosed.
