Trystate Mechanical Inc.

With a customer list that includes General Electric, the Archdiocese of New York, British Airways, Columbia University, Macy’s, Mount Sinai Medical Center and the United Nations, Trystate Mechanical Inc. is proud to stand behind its work. As a full-service HVAC contractor, Trystate says it has the experience and ability to construct a wide variety of projects, as either a subcontractor or as the mechanical prime contractor.

“Our in-house mechanical engineers, project managers, pipe drafters, union pipefitters, and LEED specialists have the get-it-done attitude to complete projects within approved budgets and schedules,” the company says.

Serving the New York metropolitan area’s education, healthcare, performing arts, residential, hotel, office and retail markets, Trystate provides HVAC construction and maintenance services. The company works directly for property owners and construction managers, installing and servicing air conditioning and heating systems. Trystate notes it is also a leader in the design and installation of green energy HVAC equipment such as fuel cells and cogeneration facilities.

“We are 100 percent union and self-perform the installation of piping systems with our staff of steamfitters,” the company says. “All HVAC piping work is self-performed by the company’s team of Local 638A Steamfitters. All HVAC start-up and HVAC maintenance work is self-performed by the company’s team of Local 638B Metal Trades Mechanics.”

From Basic to Complex

Trystate provides extensive HVAC construction work throughout the New York metro area, but it also is known for maintaining the HVAC systems in a wide range of buildings. The company’s staff of service technicians and fleet of service vehicles are available for emergency service 24 hours a day.

“Corporate, residential and cultural institutions rely on Trystate’s team to do small construction installations, as well as service and maintain their equipment,” the company says. “These small construction projects range from basic DX systems to more complex heating and cooling projects.”

In addition, Trystate has enhanced its offerings by providing green energy services and expanding its use of technology. The company has successfully completed a variety of green projects for clients such as hotels, computer data centers and hospitals. Working as the prime contractor, Trystate has experience with fuel cell installations, cogeneration plants and microturbine installations.

The company notes it also focuses on advanced technologies, such as BIM. “With a keen eye on emerging technologies, Trystate has an in-house technical development group that focuses on projects requiring the use of 3-D drafting and coordination utilizing BIM,” the company says.

Trystate stresses that safety is one of its core values, regardless of the project type. The company’s approach to safety includes regular training of its employees. “All steamfitter foremen, HVAC service technicians, and operations staff complete the OSHA 30-hour course,” the company says. “All other tradesmen, both journeyman and apprentice, complete the OSHA 10-hour course. Additional training is provided in specific areas such as scaffolding, fire watch, manlift usage, first aid and CPR.”

Integrated Corporate Strategy

Based in Douglaston, N.Y., Trystate was founded in 1976. In 2002, Trystate became a wholly owned subsidiary of PPL Corp., and is part of PPL’s fleet of mechanical contractors in the northeast United States. Headquartered in Allentown, Pa., PPL controls or owns about 19,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States, sells energy in key U.S. markets and delivers electricity and natural gas to about 10 million customers in the United States and United Kingdom.

“As dramatic changes have come to the worldwide energy business, PPL Corp. has emerged as a company that is reinventing the way customers and investors think about electricity,” the company says.

“PPL believes the future belongs to energy companies that understand customer needs and are focused on deliberate growth that maximizes shareowner value. This approach has led us to Montana, Kentucky, England and Wales. And we reliably deliver electricity in Pennsylvania, where our company began more than 90 years ago.

“PPL has adopted an integrated corporate strategy to generate and sell competitively priced energy in key U.S. markets and operate high-quality energy delivery businesses in selected regions around the world. We are accomplishing these objectives by expanding the reach of the basic approach that has made us one of most successful electric companies in the United States – a focus on excellence in operations, financial discipline and outstanding customer relationships.”

Trystate and PPL stress that both organizations “act honestly and ethically in everything we do, adhering to the highest standards of conduct. We honor our commitments, take personal responsibility for our actions and communicate openly.” Trystate’s key partners include Mason East Inc. and Galasso Trucking & Rigging Inc.
