The MCA-SMACNA (Mechanical & Sheet Metal Contractors) of San Antonio serves the needs of all members in South Texas who are involved in the commercial construction and maintenance of all manner of piping, plumbing, air conditioning, heating, ventilation and related systems along with the required support for such installations.
MCA of San Antonio was a successor to several previous similar associations and was finally incorporated about 1952. Founding members included Kurt A.J. Monier, Rigdon Terrell, Louis Mosel, Sr., Bill Gibson, T.W. Neely, Otto Tezel, Bob Cotter, Buddy Mueller, Aubrey Wilson, Ed Tschoepe and Pressly Schafer. These founders were driven by a passion for excellence that remains today as evidenced by the family-owned companies with 2nd and 3rd generation successes. Some of these outstanding industry leading corporations have celebrated 75-100 years in business helping to build San Antonio and South Texas.
In the early days there was no formal sheet metal contractors association. Around 1979, this group of sheet metal contractors decided to form an organization calling itself the San Antonio Sheet Metal Contractors Association. In 1992 the Mechanical Contractors Association and Sheet Metal Contractors Association of San Antonio partnership was formed by merging these two groups under one umbrella. In 1999 a new name was established, MCA-SMACNA of San Antonio.
Our association consists of 12 member firms with a long history of organizational successes. We are continually looking to grow as associate member companies learn the benefits MCA-SMACNA of San Antonio has to offer.
The purposes of this association are:
To advance the mechanical and sheet metal contracting industry and promote the interests and welfare of the members through mutual cooperation, public relations, and public service programs.
To provide a forum for the discussion and resolution of industry problems and for the exchange of ideas, technical data, and business information.
To promote the standardization of materials and methods in the industry.
To foster stability and friendly relations between management and labor.
To improve the quality of work performed and labor employed through continuing education and training programs.
