Linc Service Contractor, Atlantic Westchester, and the company's owner Bud Hammer were recently featured in ACHR's The News. The article features how the business found ways to serve the New York market, while maintaing a family environment.
Atlantic Westchester works with many public clients, such as schools and local governments, along with servicing health clubs, office buildings, and other businesses.
“In our marketplace, it’s very common for our competition to be a construction company first and a service company second,” Bud Hammer said. “We’re a service company first, and we do construction because the opportunities come along. The focus is to build long-term, repeatable business with our clients and to be in a position to fix things when they need to be fixed, to upgrade when the opportunity areas, or to just make whatever that client has in that building work better.”
Atlantic Westchester employs 34 people at its union shop. Bud Hammer said the firm focuses on being the employer of choice in its market. He is very involved with the union in worker development and holds a seat on the Joint Apprentice Training Committee. Bud Hammer belongs to Local 638 in New York City and Local 21 in Westchester County of the United Association. Two of his employees both teach at the union HVAC school.
