About Us

In 1996, Doug Bowers, a veteran master plumber, founded Contrast Mechanical Inc. in a small office adjacent to an ice cream factory in Detroit, Michigan and laid the groundwork for what today is one of Michigan’s leading mechanical contractors. His goal was simple: deliver quality on-time services under a structure that makes sense to its workforce and clients.

By consistently delivering quality projects on time, Contrast Mechanical quickly outgrew its humble beginning and, in 2001, moved its office and shop to Ferndale, Michigan. Out of its new office Contrast expanded its services to offer pipe-fitting, HVAC, welding and boiler services.

In 2000, Paul Bowers joined Contrast, bringing his college background and field experience to help the company grow. Today, Paul is President and is also the Lead Estimator and Senior Project Manager for Contrast.

In 2009, Contrast expanded again, moving its corporate offices to Macomb, Michigan, and again continued adding services, as it became a complete mechanical construction company, adding complete HVAC, insulation, controls, balancing and also developing expertise in design/build projects.

From the shop floor to the jobsite and boardroom, Contrast Mechanical’s professionals are dedicated to quality workmanship, uncompromising integrity and customer satisfaction.
