In 1958, Marina Mechanical was founded in San Leandro by Robert Hussey and named W/C Sheet Metal & Furnace Co. In 1964, BART construction relocated WC Sheet Metal from Parrot Street to Marina Blvd. It was during this move that Mr. Hussey decided to change the name of the company to Marina Heating and Air Conditioning.
As the popularity and need for air conditioning grew, Marina Heating and Air Conditioning built a solid reputation for installing high quality comfort systems in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Then, in 1971, Jim Hussey (Bob’s son) joined the firm to promote Marina’s growing service department. After leading Marina’s service department for several years, Jim Hussey founded a Controls Group.
In 1993 Bay Point Control, Inc. and Marina Heating and Air Conditioning merged creating the dba Marina Mechanical.
On November 1, 2015 the Board of Directors adopted an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) and in September 2020 the organization became 99% employee owned. Now employees create an ownership culture and share in the company’s success.
