Our History

Where we started. 

Seven contractors came together because of threats to the mechanics lien law. Mike Callahan (Columbus) agreed to chair the organization. With seed money from Cincinnati, Columbus and the now defunct Ohio Valley Sheet Metal Association, the group was able to get all the trades involved in the “battle” and ultimately the group won. A convention was held in Columbus in 1977 where officers were elected and the vision was to get contractors involved from every section of the state.
