RMI Success Stories
Alexander Mechanical, Inc.
Kansas City, Missouri
For Bill Alexander and David Doss, RMI was the solution to their company’s growing pains.
Based in Kansas City, Alexander Mechanical is a successful heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing contractor for industrial and commercial clients throughout the Midwest.
Founded in 1999, the company doubled in size in its first five years, and by 2007 had moved three times to keep up with growth. Alexander decided it was time to build.
“We were tired of leasing,” he remembers. “We wanted to control our own destiny.” Alexander began investigating financing options with Union Bank, which steered him to RMI and a 504 Loan.
“Working with RMI gave our lending institution that extra bit of confidence needed to move forward with the project,” Alexander says. “RMI walked us through the paperwork and within three months we were approved.”
In September 2009, Alexander Mechanical moved into its new 15,000-sq.-ft. building. The new space allows the company to do more of its prefabrication work indoors, cutting down on missed production time due to rain and snow.
The building is designed for growth and will eventually accommodate additions up to 45,000 square feet. “This building will sustain us for the next 20 years,” says Alexander, who is already planning the first addition.
Alexander says the secret to their success is keeping customers happy. “The bulk of our work is from repeat customers. The reason for our growth? We perform. And we perform consistently.”
