Our gallery is where we’ll post pictures of MCA NW Ohio events. Signatory and member contractors are busy with their businesses, but on occasion, we’ll manage to break away from work to celebrate successes, learn more from each other and from our vendors, or play golf in a fundraiser.

Industry Day 2019 was held on October 11th at the Piping Industry Training Center. Industry Day aims to educate and display the career opportunities available within the Piping Industry. Several contractors participated in the question and answer sessions. A big thank you to all the volunteers that make this day a success.
THANK YOU to all that helped make the First Annual Contractor Greet, Meet, & Eat a big success. During the first week of October we had several contractors on hand to meet, greet and feed the hungry apprentices of the Piping Industry Training Center. President Jeff Earl was the resident chef. More than 180 apprentices stopped by for dinner and conversation with the contractors. Looking forward to making this an annual event.

2020 Wreaths Across America
For the third year in a row, the Mechanical Contractors Association of NW Ohio, participated in Wreaths Across America on December 19th, 2020. With the assistance of the Piping Industry Training Center apprentices, MCA staff members and MCA contractors, 70 wreaths were distributed at 33 different cemeteries throughout Northwest Ohio. The designated wreaths were placed on gravestones to honor UA Local 50 veterans.
When the MCA first got involved with this mission, it was discovered that not all veterans received wreaths on their grave sites during the holiday season. The MCA wanted to make sure that each one of the veterans from UA Local 50 were remembered. This project is a team effort from both management and labor. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the most wonderful time of the year. Past president reception and clay shoot in honor of John White III who served as MCA president from 2017 to 2019. Thank you JW for your dedication to the MCA and your continued support.
