Our commitment to customer service is one of the main principles of our company’s mission and brand. We are constantly striving to exceed your highest expectations. It’s why we have aligned ourselves with the best mechanical equipment manufacturers, and why we have hired and retained the best service staff.
This year we wanted to take it up a notch and thank our customers for their loyalty and support over the years. On August 17th, we held our first “customer appreciation” golf outing at the beautiful Makray Memorial Golf Course in Barrington. Over 140 of our clients showed up on a day when the weather started out looking a bit ominous. But by the time our BBQ lunch was served (burgers, brats and cold beverages) the sun was shining and the day was off to a perfect start.
The golf was excellent and all of the guests received a goody bag with lots of fun things inside. Our customers enjoyed meeting our team and networking with others. There were contests and prizes galore, including four Hole-in-one contests with a 2017 Ford F150 Pick-Up Truck as the biggest prize available. We had two longest drive contests, two closest to the pin contests, and two longest putt contests. There was a low-score contest and five team events, all overseen and scored by the club professional Don Habjan.
After some of the best golf of the summer, a terrific buffet dinner and desert was served.
If you weren’t able to make the event we hope you can next year but we do want to take the time to say thank you for your support and loyalty. If there is anything that we can help you with, please call us at 800-355-7061.

We were thrilled to learn that Mechanical Equipment earned two awards at the Nexus National Sales meeting February 28th, 2017.
Nexus honored us once again with the coveted “Outstanding Achievement Award” for sales in 2016. In addition to that award, we were also chosen to receive the brand new “Pacesetter” award for outstanding leadership and sales in excess of one-million dollars of Nexus Products.
We are honored to represent such a fine product and company. The people at Nexus are friendly, professional and supportive. They truly make our job as a Manufacturer’s Representative easier!
Nexus continues to introduce new products every single year and it’s no surprise they are the number one flow-control valve company in America. They are now owned by Aalberts Industries, which opens the doors to many other new products to serve our industry and most importantly, our customers.
We now offer the new NexLock system of connections for copper and poly piping, rated to 250psi. Push-in and go, it’s as simple as that!
Watch for future additions such as temperature control valves, manifolds for chilled beams, sail panels, etc. and many more. Mechanical Equipment sells more combination coil packs than anyone in Illinois, and we keep a complete inventory for immediate delivery, so give us a call at 800-355-7061 and let us supply your next project.

We want to be your “go-to” source for hydronic HVAC system equipment. To do that, we need to have inventory so we can supply what you need, when you need it. This is especially true for two of our most popular product lines – TACO commercial pumps and Nexus Valves.
We have built up an inventory that is at or above $500,000 dollars made up of the most commonly requested parts – full pumps, motors, tanks and trim items, coil packs, hoses, blow-downs, and strainers.
If you or your company’s service division is buying pump parts or hydronic accessories, you should be buying them from Mechanical Equipment for two reasons.
First, buying directly from us helps you save money. Because trade secret, directly or indirectly, most other supply houses are likely buying them from us. They then add a “middle-man” mark-up. You can avoid that if you buy direct from ME.
Second, when you buy direct from us, you save precious time. It’s that simple! We are the only TACO Commercial Representative in Northern Illinois, so buying your TACO parts from any other distributor just adds extra time for them to get it from us which delays your project.
Avoid the mark-up and buy your hydronic HVAC equipment directly from us. Chances are that we have what you need in stock, or we can get it within 24 hours in most cases. We will continue to build our inventory so that we can serve our customers better than any other source in Illinois. Call us today at 800-355-7061 for a quote or for help designing a system for a new bid.
Mechanical Equipment was named Valve King for 2015, at the Nexus National Sales meeting in February 2016. This is the seventh time that Mechanical Equipment has been given the honor. We have become the default “go-to” provider for flow control assemblies and valve packs. We think it’s happened because we have come to “specialize” in the needs of system flow and proper balancing.
Nexus offers automatic, manual and Pressure Independent balancing valve solutions. We inventory between $250K and $300K at all times and can deliver virtually same or next day requests. We will also make the proper selections for you so that you can spend your time on other areas of your job. Additionally, we also offer mounting the valve packs to customer furnished TCV’s, and then we bag and tag them accordingly.
We think our success is directly linked to the fact that we make it so easy for customers, and because nobody else has the expertise or ability that we do, when it comes to flow-control. It’s not by accident that we’ve been “The Valve King”, seven times during the fourteen years we’ve represented Nexus! Give us a try.
The latest addition to the Mechanical Equipment team is Tom Hammond. Tom has more than twenty-five years of experience, selling hydronic and air equipment in the commercial/ industrial HVAC industry. Tom’s most recent experiences came from more than fifteen years in sales at the Lou Imbert Company, followed by selling equipment and services for Johnson Controls in Arlington Heights. Tom brings knowledge of not only many of the same products we sell here, but also of the other manufacturer’s products, so that we can better demonstrate why the factories we represent are so superior to those being sold by other companies. Tom also brings a friendly “team” attitude and is a natural leader when it comes to showing his customers and co-workers, how systems and equipment function in a complete building HVAC system. We are excited to have him on board and look forward to the continued growth that Mechanical Equipment has enjoyed, and the additional growth that will come directly from Tom’s efforts!
