"Knowledgeable, reliable, and polite employees"


Library Director - Flat River Community Library

“AMR’s relationship with Flat River Community Library began with an energy audit and temperature controls project. That project has resulted in significant cost savings in energy bills due to eliminating operating inefficiencies in our heating and cooling system. In the fifteen months since the project began, AMR has provided Flat River Community Library with routine repairs and quarterly preventive maintenance.” “While I appreciate the cost savings in our energy bills, I am particularly pleased with the level of service we have received from AMR. Our requests for service have been handled promptly by knowledgeable, reliable, and polite employees. In addition to their prompt response to requests, the AMR team is adept in identifying other areas in need of repair, often before the problem becomes significant.” “I also greatly appreciate the time the AMR team has spent with me to make sure I understand the inner workings of our building. Their excellent communication and “straight-talk” makes me confident that our system is in good hands.”

"AMR is a great company."


Property Manager, Realty Services - PNC Bank

“I will be brutally honest… AMR is a great company. From the service they provide, to their super-fast turnaround on proposal requests, and excellence in submitting accurate and timely invoices.”

“I would highly recommend AMR"


Contracting officer - General Services Administration

“With never before performing as a General Contractor (only as a mechanical contractor) this contractor went over and above with quickly adapting and filling the role needed and asked of them. Their level of communication was superior to many contractors I have worked with previously which helps immensely in government work. I would highly recommend AMR.”

"Reliable performance and professionalism."


President - Erhardt Construction

“We appreciate your company’s reliable performance and professionalism. Your commitment to quality, cleanliness on the job and excellent customer service was evident. Please express our appreciation to your associated field and office personnel involved with the Erhardt Construction Office Addition. I would highly recommend Advantage Mechanical to anyone, based on the high level of quality and service we at Erhardt Construction have experienced.”

"We have been very pleased with the performance of AMR.."


Architect/Engineer - Hooker DeJong Architects

“We have been very pleased with the performance of Advantage Mechanical-Refrigeration and their subcontractors on this project. In addition to good workmanship and good communication, I understand from Matt at the Youth Detention Center that both the water service and the electrical service changeovers and associated down time periods went very smoothly. This is very important for a secure facility of this type. They also did a very good job maintaining the construction schedule in spite of the discovery of several underground clearance concerns that were found when they were ready to begin the well drilling process.”

"Quality and prompt service"


MRO Buyer & Storeroom Supervisor - Cargill Salt, St Clair

“The quality and prompt service provided by your service personnel, Chris Koechig, on over 75 other individual service work order requests exceeded our initial expectations and with the additional 20% cost savings previous HVAC service contractors was in fact a welcomed bonus of doing business with Advantage Mechanical-Refrigeration. Many of the savings were as a direct result of recommendations made by Chris. We now think of Chris as a Cargill employee. As well, your inside office personnel have been very helpful in making sure all the paperwork requirements were also handled very professionally. Finally, we are a 24/7 operation and I was personally surprised and pleased to see a supplier fit so quickly into our hectic plant routine.”

"Quality workmanship and supervision"


Plant Manager - Zeeland Generating Station

“They have supported us in maintaining our HVAC equipment and several projects, installation of a hydrogen generator and piping, valve repairs, piping repairs, installation of steam traps and pump installations. They have provided us quality workmanship and supervision and are our vendor of choice for mechanical projects. They would be an excellent addition as an approved vendor at any industrial facility.”

"Professional, quick to respond, and they do very good work"


Facility Maintenance - Medilodge Nursing Care

“I have been working with AMR for almost a year now. They are a great company, professional, quick to respond, and they do very good work. I work for a nursing home and anytime we have an issue they are on top of it. They are great at explaining the problem and usually give several options on how the issue can be resolved. The technicians are great to work with, honest, and very good at what they do. I would recommend AMR to anyone.”
