Started by Col. James Smith and George Oby back in 1898, Smith & Oby just may be the oldest mechanical contracting firm in Ohio right now, according to President and CEO Mike Brandt. The company is now privately owned with a few shareholders. Throughout its long, storied history, Brandt is only the ninth company CEO.
Smith & Oby is dedicated to both expert craftsmanship and customer satisfaction, with a reputation for overall performance excellence. It has also stayed on the leading edge of technology in order to maintain focus on customer expectations, which is why the company has been named Plumbing & Mechanical’s 2019 Mechanical Contractor of the Year.
