Metropolitan Industries President John Kochan Jr. Reflects on 2019 While Looking Forward Towards 2020

Metropolitan Industries Project Locations in 2019

It is hard to believe 2019 has come to an end.

2019 was an exciting year for Metropolitan Industries. We have provided our expertise and support on several notable projects, one of which spans all the way back to 2005. We were a key partner to villages who wanted to improve their municipal water and wastewater systems and infrastructures to meet the needs of their community better. We also worked behind the scenes supporting the movement and management of water for some of Chicago’s most well-known hotels, hospitals, and more.

There have been a lot of internal successes to highlight as well. We made an exciting addition to the Metropolitan brand in late summer with the acquisition of Emmons Pump & Control, based out of Albany, NY. Now as Emmons Metro, they will be an instrumental asset to our company by assisting our efforts in expanding our footprint nationally. We also unveiled our new company overview video. All aspects of the video were produced and edited in house by our marketing team, and gives a bird’s eye overview of the various capabilities that our company has to offer. The video is on our website, and I hope you may take a few minutes to watch it at metii.com/overview.

With all of that being said, this time of year is also a time to look forward. We are excited about what lies ahead for 2020. Several buildings are in the pipeline, more SCADA customers are finding the merits of MetroCloud, and we continue to dominate the commercial and residential markets, all the while, staying committed to being at the forefront of the industry. Our research and development team is focused on designing innovative products and solutions that will give our customers the most efficient pump and control solutions.

At Metropolitan Industries, we are proud of the knowledge we are able to bring to a project from over 60 years of experience in this industry. We knew that specialization was sorely needed and by continuing to focus on this aspect of the business, our customers can depend on us to solve their unique water movement and management challenges. Our custom engineered packaged systems allow us to provide optimized solutions that adhere to the unique specifications of each project. From municipal water and wastewater infrastructures to plumbing and mechanical processes in commercial and industrial buildings, Metropolitan’s custom manufacturing capabilities can be used to help solve various water distribution and treatment, wastewater and stormwater management, temperature control, hydronics and reuse.

For those we have done business with, we thank you for continuing to trust us. For those potential partners, we hope there is an opportunity to work together soon.

Because through it all, our number one priority has always been providing our customers with first class solutions to your needs.

Cheers to the New Year!

John Kochan, Jr.
