Jan. 5, 2023

Philadelphia, PA – Southland Industries today announced the completion of a brand consolidation with its Philadelphia-based subsidiary Burns Mechanical.

As one of the nation's largest MEP building systems firms, the completed unification signifies Southland's enhanced ability to leverage its combined expertise and capabilities across their various regional businesses in order to provide superior value and greater services to their clients and partners under one brand.

"It's an exciting time for both our customers and employees as we complete the consolidation of our various brands to Southland Industries," said Ted Lynch, Ph.D., CEO of Southland Industries. "This consolidation better represents the way we actually do work today. An increasing amount of our work is with clients that operate in multiple geographic regions, so this should remove any potential confusion for them and make it easier for them to engage us and access our vast companywide resources and capabilities."

Dan Kerr will continue to lead Southland as the Philadelphia Division Leader serving clients in Eastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, the Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, and Delaware.
