HMI Industrial Contractors, Inc. Celebrates 30 Years in Business

Putting the Customer First Leads to Sustainable Business Success

Sacramento, California – September 1, 2021

HMI Industrial Contractors, the leading industrial contractor in the West since 1991, is celebrating 30 years of providing industrial millwright services to customers throughout Northern California and the West.

Over thirty years HMI has grown from a garage-based business with one truck, to a fully operational forty-thousand square-foot industrial millwright facility located within a five-acre yard. Today, HMI offers customers a comprehensive multi-million-dollar fabrication shop, accessible via 30-foot by 100-foot hanger doors, equipped with the latest industrial technologies, from five-ton bridge cranes to an advanced High-Power Laser cutting system, complete with a dedicated in-house operator and staff CAD designer.

“We’re happy to be celebrating 30 years in business as an American Industrial Millwright company this year,” said Ruth Gilman, President and CEO, HMI Industrial. “We take a great deal of pride in our people and the work we provide to our customers. We’re looking forward to the next thirty years and seeing what we will accomplish working together.”

In its early days, HMI operated as Harelson Mechanical, working primarily in the food processing industry. While providing millwright services for the food processing industry remains part of the core business, HMI has grown. The company changed its name to HMI Industrial Contractors, Inc. and evolved to serve large public and private entities, including organizations in manufacturing, aggregates, cements, mining, warehouse distribution, wineries, beverage, public works, renewable energy, and utility industries, as well as partnering with global equipment manufacturers.

“Our company roots remain healthy and rock-solid,” said Andrea D’Angelo, VP of Business Development, HMI Industrial. “As the only certified woman/minority-owned enterprise in the industrial millwright industry of California, our reputation is extremely important to us. Treating our customers as partners, and working for their success has proven to be a profitable, sustainable business model for us.”

September 1991 to September 2021. Thirty years of industry-leading customer satisfaction. Thirty years of progress. Thirty years of stability, experience, excellence, integrity, and an unmatched commitment to safety. Do you have a construction project HMI can help with?
