An Unforgettable St. Louis HVAC Technician Career

In 1993, an unforgettable journey started for Neal Woodard and St. Louis-based Midwest Mechanical Services & Solutions. That year he began his commercial HVAC technician and refrigeration service career with us. Now, after 27 years of impeccable work, he has clocked out for the last time and gone into retirement, leaving us inspired by his dedication and values.

Why do we share this story about Neal with you? Because a 27-year career doesn’t just happen. It grows from striving for excellence, and by working for a company like ours, one that values employees, gets to know our clients, and goes the extra mile for both.

Our HVAC and refrigeration service techs have been mentored by Neal, which means his legacy carries on in the thorough job they do when servicing your industrial HVAC and refrigeration systems.

Midwest Mechanical Services & Solutions HVAC Techs Provide Peace of Mind to Clients

Our culture of employee appreciation and the encouragement to grow as an industrial HVAC service technician, a refrigeration systems tech, a project systems engineer, sales professional, or any other type of team member, leads to job satisfaction and customer appreciation, which is why we are still in business after 50 years. Neal exemplifies all of this and more.

Saying that Neal was “good at his job” would be an understatement. He always went above and beyond and provided peace of mind to clients and to his team in a myriad of situations.

During his time with us, Neal helped our valued clients with nearly every heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration issue you can imagine. His expertise and leadership made him a client favorite – he calmed every emergency situation and provided regular maintenance and inspections with efficiency. He also gave his teammates the confidence to deliver unmatched service whenever they stepped onto a jobsite.

The HVAC Philosopher

“Neal’s laid back with a ‘philosophical’ approach,” said Midwest Mechanical Owner and President, Rob Brouillet. “He doesn’t worry about the things he can’t control, which is one of the traits that made him such a staple here. His focus allowed Neal and his team to get jobs done quickly and efficiently – which our clients were always big fans of – and he always knew how to keep things in perspective.”

Neal explained, “With what we do, dealing with HVAC systems, it’s easy to get sidetracked and sucked down a rabbit hole going nowhere. I always tried to approach projects with a larger view and take the whole thing together to solve the problem.”

Neal is happy to share just how much he and Midwest Mechanical have grown together over the last 28 years. “I watched us go from four technicians to nine and an apprentice,” said Neal. “For the size of our company to do what we do, it’s pretty amazing.”

Midwest Mechanical Services & Solutions is unique. Most HVAC and refrigeration contractors only sell new systems and equipment. By contrast, we offer inspections, service, repair, and maintenance programs that keep your systems running at top efficiency for as long as possible.
