In the heart of Garner, NC, you can find one of the fastest-growing heating and cooling businesses in the area: Modern Mechanical. After years of working as a general manager at a larger HVAC company, Managing Partner Stephen Eisenmann, Sr. decided to open his own business with his son in December 2007. In April 2008 Andrew Straka left the company he was working for to become the third partner.

This team focused on heating and air replacement and maintenance services. In February 2010 the electrical department opened doing residential service and repair. In 2012, Modern Mechanical opened a sheet metal shop, where they create and install duct work to fit the needs of the job. All of their services are available to both residential and commercial properties.

This team has been in the heating and cooling business for 30+ years, so experience is on their side. Their business philosophy is different from so many others because they put their customers and employees first. Modern Mechanical’s mission is to provide the community with an established, dependable company focused on exceptional service and integrity. Employee training, safety, and compensation are of utmost importance to the business model. Because of these ideals, Modern Mechanical has flourished.

After years of success and tremendous growth, the time came for Modern Mechanical to seek out a larger space for his expanding business. Modern Mechanical started out in a garage, then grew to a 2,500 square foot space, added another 2,500 square foot space, and had a separate shop for metalworking. Consolidation and a larger workspace were essential to the expansion plans. Mr. Eisenmann had been a member of First National Bank for several years, so he knew exactly where to turn to obtain the funds he needed for his commercial real estate purchase. It was determined that a small business loan would be the best option for Modern Mechanical – that’s how Mr. Eisenmann became connected with Business Development Officer Michael Byers. Michael’s expertise and guidance in small business lending led to the successful close of this SBA 7(a) loan.

Mr. Eisenmann had this to say about working with Michael Byers:

"Michael has been great to work with. The SBA loan process was challenging, but he knew how to get us through it. He kept us informed and followed through quite well. I give Michael all the praise in the world for helping us close the deal!

With the funds from the commercial real estate loan, Modern Mechanical has successfully moved into their new 12,000 square foot facility. They plan to continue serving their customers in the best way possible.
