Mid Illinois Mechanical was founded in 1990 by Doug Dodson, a well-respected fixture in the Central Illinois trades. Doug’s goal was to fill the gaps he saw in the industry with quality work and reliable service. What began as a three-person shop has steadily grown over the last 30 years. During that time, Mid Illinois Mechanical has expanded its team, capabilities, and breadth of operation to become a leader in the industry. Mid Illinois Mechanical features three divisions: maintenance & service, design/build, and process piping fabrication.
Today, Mid Illinois Mechanical is run by Doug’s two sons, Joel and Jeremy Dodson, who build on the strong foundation laid by their father. They are continuously searching for ways to better serve our customers through innovation and evolution. Within the last five years, Mid Illinois Mechanical has reimagined its service division, launched its prefabrication shop, and has plans for more advancements in the future.
Joel moved into the role of President in 2018 and has driven significant growth at Mid Illinois Mechanical. He has stayed true to the original values that Doug established and implemented our new company promise. Joel continues to raise the bar of work quality and service reliability every day.
As Chief Estimator at Mid Illinois Mechanical, Jeremy is instrumental in project selection. He seeks out engagements where Mid Illinois Mechanical can provide exceptional value and build on our strong reputation while continuing to diversify the breadth of our experience.
