After working in the field, Rich transitioned into the office as a sales representative


Rich moved into a sales management position, and a year later was promoted to a general management role


V.A. Smith was acquired by Exelon and Rich accepted a General Manager position at a competitor for the Rolling Meadows office

After purchasing his partner’s interest, Rich re-branded the company as First Point Mechanical Services, LLC

First Point’s creation is more than just Rich’s story, it is also the story of a talented and dedicated team of technicians, support staff and longtime customers. Our average technician has 20 years of field experience. Collectively, our years of experience in the field can be measured in century counts. Some of our people have been working together for 25 years or more.
