KSW Mechanical LLC originated as a consolidated group of large, industry leading New York City based mechanical contracting firms.

During the late 1980’s JWP Inc., a public company acquired several leading NYC mechanical contracting firms and merged them together into one operating entity, JWP Mechanical Services.

In 1993 a California based public company acquired the firm and spun off an independent public company KSW Inc. along with its wholly owned subsidiary KSW Mechanical Services.

On October 11, 2012, The Related Companies, L.P. (a leading New York City based real estate development firm) acquired KSW, Inc. and KSW Mechanical Services, Inc.

In January 2015, KSW purchased the assets of Orion Mechanical Systems, Inc.  Orion’s Senior Management and staff, along with its operations have been integrated into KSW’s structure. Orion’s service division, now rebranded as “Orion Technical Services”, operates as a fully owned subsidiary of KSW Mechanical LLC, which was created in July 2015.
