What the Future Holds for Partners
The Waldinger Corporation
Western Allied Mechanical
The New Horizons Foundation updated its HVAC and Sheet Metal Industry Futures Study in 2016. The comprehensive report includes a section identifying five key implications that contractor firms need to understand and improve upon to successfully move forward over the next 3 to 5 years. Foundation Chair Guy Gast (former SMACNA President) and Foundation Vice Chair Angie Simon (2018 SMACNA Secretary/Treasurer) will share their thoughts about the study. Angie is president at Western Allied Mechanical, a Bay Area design-build contractor, and Guy is president of The Waldinger Corporation’s Iowa Division. Both bring perspectives on customers, the workforce, labor relationships, technology, and the challenges and opportunities–present and future–that all Partners in Progress will want to hear.
