About Us

Our Story

In 1984, Jim Gander founded Superior Plumbing and Heating. Over the next two decades, four additional operations were created (Superior Water Conditioning, Superior Irrigation Systems, US Mechanical Insulation, and Superior Mechanical Systems). After years of business changes and industry shifts, all five companies were merged into one single company -  Superior Mechanical with offices in Rochester and Pequot Lakes Minnesota.

Merging all five companies into one allowed us to serve our valued customer base more competitively, through an expansion of both our services and service areas. Each of our experiences has contributed to shaping Superior Mechanical into who we are today - a full-service Plumbing, HVAC, Piping, Refrigeration, and Mechanical Insulation contractor.

We are proud to provide our customers with the most convenient, efficient, code-compliant plumbing and HVAC systems. We aim to deliver each of our products and services at the lowest cost possible without sacrificing the standards of workmanship and service. It is our sincere hope and desire to provide you with the service you deserve and establish a relationship that will last for many years.

The Superior Mechanical Mission

To be the most honest plumbing and mechanical contractor consisting of a team of professionals with individual talents, personalities, and experience working together in a fun, comfortable, productive workplace building relationships and providing consistent, reliable customer service.
