In its first 100 years, the T.J. Dyer Company helped build a small city of offices, plants, hospitals, hotels and stadiums.

The expertise, financial strength and good name that the mechanical contracting company built along the way figured to make Dyer a force well into its second century.

The company’s leaders were not content to rest on their resume, though. So they invested a significant amount of time and money to become skilled in the latest technology; they implemented a strong control system to improve labor productivity; and they re-focused on the products, services and geographic markets that formed the foundation of the company generations ago.

Around the same time that Dyer committed to upgrading its controls and its capabilities, Grote Enterprises (the management services provier for T.J. Dyer and Cinfab) switched accounting firms – from a large, international firm to Barnes Dennig, a local firm with a number of clients in the construction industry.
