Why Fabrication is Key to Providing Comprehensive Mechanical Solutions

The TP Mechanical advantage is innovation, pure and simple. We’ve taken the mechanical fabrication concept, expanded on its capabilities and used it in ground-breaking applications that have transformed the role of mechanical systems in the commercial construction industry.

TP Mechanical is different from other contractors out there because we house a team of experienced, creative engineers and state-of-the-art software, technology and equipment all under one roof – a 45,000 square-foot, ISO-certified fabrication facility built in 2009.

In this controlled environment, we build every component with unparalleled precision. Combine that with our three distribution centers in Cincinnati, Columbus and Lexington, and we can deliver quality, accurate orders of mechanical systems ready for installation. That means your project timeline is accelerated and your jobsite is cleaner, which gets your doors open faster.

“Our fabrication operations play a role in 90% of our projects,” said Steve Blust, TP Mechanical’s Vice President of Internal Operations. “Through fabrication, we are improving project efficiency by shortening timelines, reducing waste and pre-testing systems in our ISO-certified facilities before delivery.”

Our unique mechanical fabrication capabilities will revolutionize your project by:

  • Accelerating production and installation times
  • Shortening construction timelines
  • Eliminating delays due to inclement weather and schedule conflicts
  • Reducing material waste
  • Improving safety of workers and the jobsite
  • Ensuring pricing accuracy to help you stay within budget
  • Enhancing quality and consistency with specialized work groups
  • Ensuring local code compliance with pre-tested systems before delivery
  • Bundling materials and units to enable easier transport – saving time in the field
  • Customizing solutions to every project challenge

At TP Mechanical, we know the challenges of large-scale construction projects, and we’ve solved them with our market-leading, quality-driven fabrication process.

TP Mechanical Earns ISO Certification for Fabrication Shop

We’re excited to announce our fabrication shop is now CERTIFIED for ISO 9001:2008 quality management systems.

Our registration reads, “prefabrication of components for the purpose of fast-track construction in the piping, mechanical plumbing and fire protection fields.” Our ISO compliance is registered through Eagle Registrations, Inc., an ANAB accredited firm.

Why is this important?

At TP Mechanical, we’ve always strive to do things the right way. Now, a third-party organization has reviewed our processes and put their stamp of approval on them. They agree that we have what it takes to make quality fabricated products for mechanical piping, plumbing and fire protection.

The fabrication shop, a 45,000-square-foot facility, is staffed by skilled tradesmen relying on state-of-the-art modeling technologies to produce custom fabricated mechanical parts. The shop fabricates a variety of materials used in HVAC, plumbing and fire protection construction. The products include steel, cast iron, CPVC, PVC and copper pipe assemblies, pipe hangers and supports, equipment and pump skids and carrier groups.

What is ISO?

The ISO 9001 system integrates a company’s internal processes to facilitate a coordinated approach for managing the business. Certified companies have implemented a system to identify, measure, control and improve the core business processes, ultimately leading to improved business performance.

Why fabrication?

Fabrication allows us to serve our customers more effectively:

  • Shorten construction schedules
  • Enhance quality
  • Reduce materials cost
  • Decrease waste and scrap

TP Mechanical’s unique fabrication capabilities streamline the construction process by accelerating production and installation time while shortening construction timelines. It can also eliminate delays due to inclement weather, prevent scheduling conflicts, reduce material waste and improve safety of workers at the job site. Fabrication can also ensure pricing accuracy, enhance quality and consistency and allow for truly custom solutions for every project challenge.

Congratulations to everyone at TP Mechanical who has contributed to this achievement, especially Dan Holland, Rick Absher and Jef Schachleiter for their efforts in pursuing the certification. We’re excited to be able to deliver ISO-registered quality to our customers.
