Building on Experience since 1945

In 1945, Dan Truog and Clyde Nichols started a mechanical contracting company focused on responsible and reliable building services. 10 years later, in 1955, a chemistry major named Vince LoScalzo joined the company as a salesman. It was a period of tremendous growth, working on high profile projects such as The Plaza, Hall's Department Store, Harzfeld's, and the Alameda Plaza Hotel. They provided total energy plants for Georgetown and Fox Run that included electrical and HVAC using gas turbines for the entire complex.



One of the Midwest’s Leading Contractors

Vince LoScalzo was a believer in the business. And the people who made it up. In early 1978, along with a group of long-time Truog-Nichols employees, he purchased the company and renamed it Environmental Mechanical Contractors. They maintained the same services: heating, ventilating, air conditioning, piping, sheet metal and a complete plant for fabrication of all types of systems- and the company built up a dependable reputation. In 1983, Vince LoScalzo’s son, Thomas J. LoScalzo, joined his father as a mechanical engineer and in 1992 was named President. Thomas has an extensive background as a mechanical, electrical, and plumbing consultant. As a licensed engineer in Kansas and Missouri, he also lends his supervision and direction to design, mechanical construction, fabrication, maintenance, estimates, and construction management.
