Xcel Mechanical Lands Strategic Aerospace Service & Maintenance Contract

PALMDALE, CA – Xcel Mechanical Systems has been awarded a three-year labor contract to provide preventive and corrective maintenance of mechanical, plumbing and piping systems at Lockheed Martin’s massive production campus in Palmdale.

It’s a strategic business development move that further establishes Xcel Mechanical as one of the top mechanical and plumbing contractors across Southern California’s Aerospace industry. It also adds a key client logo to a growing list of annual service contracts that generate recurring business opportunities for the company.

“This new service contract includes all trades, and the work will be performed at a premiere aerospace facility where excellence is the standard for all who perform work there,” said Kevin Michel, company president. “With this three-year agreement in place, we expect it will generate a significant amount of mission-critical service work at a time when we’re seeing across-the-board growth on that side of our business,” Mr. Michel said.

“This new service partnership will also heighten our visibility with the general contractors working at the site, and will make us even more competitive in their bidding process as we pursue larger projects there,” he said. “There is growth in this sector and in this region, and we are well-positioned to help our clients hit their mechanical, plumbing and piping construction and maintenance objectives.”
