In 1995, Don Wightman recognized an opportunity. With a lot of hard work and a focus on superior customer service Don thought it was possible to create a leading mechanical firms in BC. That year, he launched PML Professional Mechanical Ltd. He started small, with just one service truck and a commitment to customer service: doing things right the first time.

Things started simple with small contracts for the repair and replacement of air conditioning equipment and systems. With growth came new service trucks, new technicians and opportunities for larger projects. Within a few years PML launched its Retrofit Division, rebuilding and replacing not only air conditioning, but heating systems as well.

The success of the Retrofit Division led to bigger and better things, including some construction projects that could be easily designed in-house. This led to the launch of the Construction Division, which slowly but surely developed into an important company service. A track record of successful jobs in the Construction Division led to new relationships, and bigger projects, starting with the River Rock Casino in Richmond in 2005, a $23 million design-and-build mechanical installation that took two years to complete. Today PML has numerous construction projects through BC and Alberta, including commercial properties, residential properties, mixed use properties and institutional properties.

Through the many projects and the significant growth, Don never lost sight of his original goal, nor his commitment to customer service. Today, PML offers services in all facets of mechanical contracting, from design-and-build to construction, fire protection, service, preventative maintenance and retrofit.

Over the years, PML has become a trusted and reliable, one-stop shop for quality mechanical contracting in Western Canada.
