SMACNA recently visited Therma, a leading mechanical services company focused on designing, building, and servicing custom and complex mechanical systems. The company is one of SMACNA’s largest members and has more than 1,000 employees. Founded in 1967 by Joe and Nicki Parisi, Therma sits on an 18 acre campus in San Jose, California.
SMACNA got to talk with Joe and several Therma executives. Viewers will get a good sense for the depth and breadth of services offered including engineering, estimation, design, building information modeling, energy modeling, design-build, specialty HVAC and pipe fabrication, modular skid and process controls, pre-fabrication and installation work. Clients range from general contractors, construction managers and owners in the technology, biopharmaceutical, to data center, semiconductor and other industries with complex mechanical requirements. Therma was acquired by Gemspring Capital, a Westport, Connecticut-based private equity firm in 2017.
