Calling it a market differentiator, BOND Brothers, Inc. (BOND), a premier family of companies providing the Northeast with construction management and general contracting services, introduces a third company: BOND Mechanical Construction, LLC (BOND Mechanical). The mechanical service offering joins BOND Building Construction (BOND Building) and BOND Civil & Utility Construction (BOND Civil & Utility) and establishes BOND as the only competitor in the Northeast market offering all three services.
“This is certainly a differentiator because you’re never going to find a company that provides all the services that we do,” said Tony Bond. “Adding a mechanical component further cements our commitment to the power, energy and industrial markets. BOND Mechanical allows us to provide added value and expertise to our clients and enhances our ability to deliver projects with ownership at each step – from the mechanical, to the civil, to the management aspect.”
BOND Mechanical will be led by Kenneth Durr, an industry veteran, who will serve as President of the new company. Durr’s former role as president and chief operating officer of a family-led mechanical construction company for more than two decades brings a wealth of technical and local expertise in the Tri-State Region where BOND Mechanical is headquartered.
“We believe that BOND Mechanical will be able to successfully collaborate with BOND’s other companies on both existing clients and markets and new opportunities,” said Durr. “This added service emphasizes the BOND Companies’ abilities to address the needs of specialized markets and to seamlessly deliver safe, high quality work, on time and on budget.”
Rounding out the BOND Mechanical leadership team will be longtime associates of Durr: Frank Heidinger, Vice President of Operations, and Stacey Dillon, Vice President of Estimating & Purchasing. With more than 40 years of experience in the mechanical construction industry, Heidinger is an active leader who has earned the respect of management and unionized labor throughout the region. Dillon is a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland, who has worked alongside Durr and Heidinger since she first came to America, working her way up from intern to leading BOND Mechanical’s team of estimators on all major projects.
“Frank and Stacey are as talented a duo as you’re going to find in the mechanical construction field,” said Durr. “They’re smart, savvy, dedicated and through the years, they have developed a track record and level of trust that is second to none. They know the industry and its people inside and out, so we’ll be able to continue leveraging that expertise for BOND Mechanical. We’re lucky to have them both.”
BOND Mechanical will operate out of the BOND offices located in New York City and will serve clients primarily in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut regions. BOND established its New York City office in 2015, and currently services clients such as ConEdison, National Grid, Brooksville Companies and the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey.
“Our model will be focused on existing facilities, relationships, solving problems, getting in there and making the lives of our clients easier,” said Durr. “We’re bringing safety, quality and confidence to the table. Being able to perform everything under the BOND banner and not having to subcontract out can’t be underestimated. It greatly enhances our ability to provide value and expertise for our clients.”
BOND thrives on complex and schedule-sensitive work, and the newly formed BOND Mechanical marks the company’s commitment to servicing its existing clients and building new business relationships.
“This is part of the long-range growth strategy for BOND,” said Bond. “It is the first new venture for us in such a fashion and really the first time we’ve ever started a new company like this. It’s a win-win for our clients and solidifies BOND as a major competitor in this market.”
