A GRASSROOTS COMPANY WITH HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
It was Daniel Vanderhyde’s childhood dream to work for his father’s company. He worked as a plumber for him for 13 years and helped grow his service department from 2 to 10. After getting his HVAC, Plumbing and Boiler licenses like his father and grandfather before him, he was inspired strike off on his own. In 2015, with nothing but some tools, an old truck that “Got me from A to B… usually” and a genuine desire to help people and provide the best service the industry had to offer, he started “Lake Michigan Mechanical.”
For six months he worked alone out of his truck, until eventually his hard work paid off and he was able to hire his first employee. The dynamic duo continued to “rock it out” until they were a trio. As the reputation of their good work began to spread, they continued to grow and by 2017 they were a company of 5. The basement they were operating out of was beginning to feel a little cramped, so they made a big move: Into the garage.
They kept on growing, and in 2018 they finally purchased the shop they operate out of today. They had a grand opening in 2019, and in March 2021 they rebranded from “Lake Michigan Mechanical” and became “Lake Michigan Heating, Cooling, Plumbing.”
As the company continues to grow, it still feels small. That spirit of hard work, openness with customers, and doing the best job we can has never left us. Our positive work culture is contagious, and you can feel it when you see us work. We work hard every single day to improve the company and make sure everyone is having a positive experience: From our technicians to our customers. It’s why we say, time and time again…
