ACCA Names 2013 Commercial Contractor of the Year

Originally published: 02.26.13 by HVACR Business Staff

ACCA has named Ivey Mechanical in Kosciusko, Mississippi, its 2013 Commercial Contractor of the Year. Ivey Mechanical will be presented the Commercial Contractor of the Year award on March 1 at the closing general session of ACCA 2013 in Orlando, Florida.

Over the past 66 years, Ivey Mechanical has grown from a small single location, primarily residential company, to a multi-location, regional commercial contracting firm. Diversifying their services and expanding across the Southeast region has helped them achieve a new level of success.

Another key factor to their success, is their standard operating procedures that they have made into what is known as the "Ivey Red Book." This manual lays out the way they do business, step-by-step. The Red Book has been a part of their company for over 25 years and has been "tweaked" along the way to keep up with times, but is pretty much the same. Ivey is now producing the "Ivey Blue Book," which outlines the Ivey service process step-by-step.

“Again this year we had a number of innovative commercial contractors apply for this award,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. "Our judges have an extremely tough decision each year when they pick the recipient of this

award. This year's winner, Ivey Mechanical, illustrates the characteristics that all of the best commercial contractors in the country have in common.”
