Our Company History
In a small corner of Dubois County, Indiana, Basil Mehringer opened his modest Plumbing Heating and Air shop. The year was 1964. Basil, or “Bas” as he was known, would run the shop solo for the next eight years until his son Dennis “Bucket” Mehringer could join him and form a formal partnership, in 1972.
The father and son duo continued to grow the company, building upon each aspect of their business as opportunities presented themselves. It wouldn’t be long before they would realize that their business had outgrown their two-man abilities and they’d have to start hiring help. In 1977 they would add their first employee, and from there, there was no looking back.
Always leading with the attitude, “If there’s a need, we will fill it,” it wasn’t long until Mehringer started making their own duct work. After waiting, too many times, to be fit into a crane company’s schedule, they bought their own crane so that they and their clients would no longer be kept waiting. They would expand into such services as fire suppression, dust collection, sprinkler systems and other services that arose as a natural growth from all of their basic services. Today, Mehringer is an industry leader, having grown from a small Plumbing/HVAC shop, to a purveyor of equipment and services for huge industrial complexes as well as the family home. In the expanse of time between 1964 and now, only two things have changed: the wealth of experience they have gained and the scope of business Mehringer performs. They still cling to their hometown pride in community, craftsmanship and quality and will continue to carry that pride with them, wherever they go. Search around, if you must, but, in the end, you’ll find that no one works harder for you than Mehringer!

What We Do
The easier question for us to answer would be, “What don’t you do?” We are not simply “installers.” We can start completely from scratch to design a plumbing and/or HVAC system that will perfectly match your applications. This holds true, not only with industrial customers, but with commercial and residential clients as well. Once it’s designed, we’ll install it in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible. We’ll even create your duct work in our custom fabrication shop, and, if the application calls for it, provide our own crane to put the necessary units in place.
From small spaces to huge warehouses, we’ll help create the perfect comfort-controlled environment, whether it’s with a small Split Unit or a huge rooftop installation. Or, we’ll create the perfect plumbing network for your space. And we do all jobs with an attention to detail that is unequaled in our industry.
