History

… a Century of Commitment to Innovation and Customer Service

1910

Henry J. Mollenberg and Jacob Betz started a machine shop to perform general machining and design work.

1911

Citizens’ Dairy of Lockport, New York, asked Mollenberg-Betz to design and install a refrigeration system, the genesis of our legacy in refrigeration technology.

1937

Mollenberg-Betz installed the first air conditioning system in Buffalo for Sattler’s Department Store.

1960

To anticipate and better serve rapidly expanding business demands, Mollenberg-Betz formed dedicated operating divisions for its Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC); Process Piping; Ice Rink; and Service departments.

1985

The machine shop was converted into an 18,000 sq. ft. fabrication facility. The enhanced capability to pre-fabricate piping assemblies and skid packages for jobs within the area and out of town helped expand our business to include chemical and industrial plant work.

1998

Cayuga Piping, a subsidiary of Mollenberg-Betz, was created to provide a dedicated corporate entity to growing commercial, industrial, and institutional plumbing markets.

2010

Mollenberg-Betz welcomed Custom Sheet Metal and Custom Metal Fabrication to the Mollenberg-Betz family. As wholly owned subsidiaries, Custom provide true turnkey solutions to every application as well as a competitive edge in a variety of markets.

Present

Mollenberg-Betz continues its mission as a nationally recognized leader in mechanical-refrigeration contracting, advancing the design, construction, and service of refrigeration systems, HVAC, process piping, pre-fabrication, skid packages, plumbing, and ice rinks.

Our clients range from large national organizations to smaller local entities… and all are provided the same outstanding level of attention and service that have been our hallmark for the last century, and will remain as such for the century to come.

“When our customers give us their business, they give us their trust.  I want their experiences to show that their trust has been well placed”
