A Magical Night with Santa and Team MSD

By | blog

What a magical night it was at MSD’s Night with Santa! Team MSD and their families, along with Santa and Mrs. Claus, came together for an unforgettable evening filled with joy and holiday spirit. This heartwarming gathering is a testament to our character as a team and what we do to engage with our families.

We indulged in sweet treats that tickled our taste buds and warmed our hearts. From cookies to hot cocoa, it was a delightful feast for all. Creativity was in the air as we crafted special holiday projects. Our artistic talents shined bright, and the results were fantastic! The kids (and kids at heart) penned heartwarming letters to Santa. Soon, these wishes will embark on a journey to the North Pole, carrying our hopes and dreams.

The best part of the night was witnessing our MSD crew come together as one big family. It’s these moments of togetherness that make the holidays truly special. As the night ended, we couldn’t help but feel grateful for this incredible evening. We’re already counting down the days until we can host this event again next year. In a nutshell, MSD’s Night with Santa was a fantastic evening filled with laughter, sweetness, creativity, and unity. We can’t wait to do it all over again next year!

Wishing you all a joyful holiday season and a fantastic year ahead.

A Season of Thanks: MSD, Inc.’s Milestone Achievements at the Synergy Executive Forum

By | blog

As the Thanksgiving season approaches, a time traditionally reserved for reflection and gratitude, we at MSD, Inc. find ourselves with abundant reasons to be thankful. It is with immense pride and humility that we share the news of our recent accolades at the Synergy Executive Forum. Our dedicated team has been honored with two prestigious awards: the Peer of the Year and the Best Idea Award.

This season, our sense of gratitude is twofold. Firstly, we are thankful for the recognition from the Synergy Solution Group, which serves not only as a nod to our past efforts but also as a beacon for our future endeavors. These awards symbolize the respect and trust that our peers in the HVAC industry have in us, acknowledging our commitment to progress and excellence.

Secondly, and most importantly, we are immensely grateful for the people who make up MSD, Inc. — our team members. Each individual’s unique contribution, whether a groundbreaking idea or the diligent execution of daily tasks, has woven into the fabric of our collective success. It is their achievements we celebrate, their innovative spirit we toast to, and their unwavering dedication we are most thankful for this season.

As we gather, both in person and in spirit, to celebrate these accomplishments, we reflect on the strength that comes from unity. The HVAC community is more than a network of professionals; it is a family, one that supports and uplifts its members through every challenge and triumph.

We’re inspired by the past year’s challenges that have only served to strengthen our resolve and our bonds within the community. We look forward to carrying these values and the spirit of Thanksgiving into the future, embarking on a journey ripe with possibilities and driven by the power of collaboration.

Your support has been the cornerstone of our journey so far. It is you, our clients, partners, and friends, who infuse our work with meaning and purpose. As we celebrate these victories and express our gratitude, we are reminded that every milestone is a shared achievement.

From the MSD family to yours, thank you for being a part of our story. May this Thanksgiving bring you joy, peace, and reflection on the blessings of the year. Together, let’s continue to build a future marked by innovation, strength, and community.

MSD, Inc.: Celebrating Excellence in Service with the VIP Partner Award from Gordon Food Services

By | blog

We’ve always known that the heart of MSD, Inc. is its unwavering commitment to client satisfaction. But sometimes, it feels extra special to have those efforts recognized by those we serve alongside. Last month, a momentous occasion marked MSD’s journey as we were honored with the VIP Partner Award by Gordon Food Services at their Annual Meeting, a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team members.

In a gala filled with industry leaders, two of our own, Joe Shank and Johnny Stewart, represented MSD with pride. As they stood to accept the award, it wasn’t just a win for MSD but for every mechanical service provider striving for excellence. This recognition was historical, as it was the first time Gordon Food Services extended this accolade to a Mechanical Service Provider. And what an honor it was!

This award is more than a trophy on our shelf; it’s a narrative of the countless hours and the immense passion our team pours into every project. It’s about the late-night calls, the early-morning fixes, and the relentless pursuit of solutions that keep our clients’ operations running smoothly. Our team members live out our mission daily, ensuring every interaction with MSD is a positive, fulfilling experience.

Receiving the VIP Partner Award is not just a milestone but also a reminder of our responsibility. It reinforces our promise to deliver nothing less than 100% client satisfaction. It’s a commitment etched into the core of MSD, driving us to excel, to innovate, and to forge lasting partnerships with giants like Gordon Food Services.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Gordon Food Services for this honor and to our incredible team for making it possible. A special shout-out to Joe and Johnny, who embody the spirit of MSD and represent the collective effort of our entire team.

As we celebrate this achievement, we’re reminded of our mission. This award is a motivation to continue pushing the boundaries, to maintain the high standards we’ve set for ourselves, and to ensure that our clients always have a partner they can count on in MSD.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey. Here’s to continuous growth, unwavering dedication, and many more accolades to come!

Walking with Pride: MSD, Inc Shines at Light The Night Walk

By | blog

Cancer—the word alone sends shivers down our spines. The moment you or someone you love hears the words, “you have cancer,” a heavy darkness descends, enveloping your world in uncertainty and fear. It’s a moment no one should face alone, and that’s where the incredible community formed by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) comes in. Through their annual Light The Night Walk, LLS aims to turn those feelings of despair into hope, helplessness into empowerment, and loneliness into a sense of deep, community-driven connection.

We at MSD, Inc are not just proud but deeply honored to have been a sponsor for this transformative event. Here’s a look at our experience, what the event means to us, and why we believe it’s crucial for everyone to be a part of this life-changing initiative.

Be the Voice That Speaks Up
One of the key messages behind Light The Night is the power of collective action. When it comes to battling cancer, every voice matters. Your voice can be the one that advocates for more research, better treatment, and the eradication of the stigmas that often accompany a cancer diagnosis. At MSD, Inc, we want to be that voice, amplifying the mission and vision of LLS, and encouraging everyone to be outspoken advocates for this critical cause.

Be the Hand That Reaches Out
Beyond sponsorship, the MSD team members personally participated in the Light The Night Walk. We felt the undeniable energy, the sense of unity, and the collective determination to bring cancer to its knees. We reached out, both literally and figuratively, to patients, survivors, and family members who have been touched by leukemia, lymphoma, and other forms of cancer. Our team felt the impact that even the smallest gesture can have in brightening someone’s darkest days.

Be the Light That Cures Cancer
The main event—the walk itself—was an incredibly emotional experience. The lanterns illuminating the path symbolized the hope we carry for a brighter tomorrow, free from the darkness of cancer. MSD, Inc firmly believes in the transformative power of research and support, which are central pillars of LLS’s work. By participating in and sponsoring events like Light The Night, we aim to contribute to the research and development that will one day cure cancer.

Together, We Bring People Out of the Dark
Through our sponsorship and participation in the Light The Night Walk, we were reminded of the strength that comes from unity, the hope that comes from collective action, and the tangible changes that can happen when communities come together for a common cause.

Thank you to everyone who walked alongside us, who cheered from the sidelines, and who continue to support the fight against cancer in countless ways. Together, we can and will bring people out of the dark.

Join us next year, as we once again proudly participate in the Light The Night Walk, to continue shining a light on the path to a cancer-free world.

With hope and gratitude, The MSD, Inc Team

MSD, Inc. Walks in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

By | blog

This past weekend, on October 14, 2023, at 9:00 AM, the MSD, Inc. team gathered at the Day Air Ballpark, located at 220 N Patterson Blvd in Dayton, OH. It was a beautiful morning filled with purpose, as we walked together for a cause close to our hearts – breast cancer awareness.

At MSD, Inc., we take immense pride in our Give to Grow Community Involvement Program, and the annual breast cancer awareness walk is a cherished tradition. For years, we’ve been lacing up our sneakers and hitting the pavement, all in the name of hope and support for those affected by breast cancer.

The atmosphere at the Day Air Ballpark was brimming with positivity and solidarity. Team MSD, Inc. showed up with our signature enthusiasm, donning pink ribbons and shirts that symbolized our commitment to this important cause. As we embarked on our walk, we carried not only our collective determination but also the hope of making a difference.

The walk itself was a memorable experience, with team members, family, and friends joining in. We walked not just for ourselves, but for our loved ones, friends, and countless others whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. Each step we took represented a pledge of support, a gesture of empathy, and a promise of awareness.

Though our blog post is short, our message is profound. Breast cancer awareness is not just a month-long campaign for us; it’s a year-round commitment. We believe in the power of unity, compassion, and education to combat this disease and offer hope to those facing it.

As we wrapped up our walk, we couldn’t help but reflect on the importance of coming together as a community to create positive change. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to breast cancer awareness, and we look forward to continuing this tradition in the years to come.

Thank you for joining us on this meaningful journey. Together, we can make a difference, one step at a time.

How MSD, Inc Energy Audits Can Help Your Facility Save Money

By | blog

Winter is right around the corner, and with cooler weather comes the prospect of rising energy costs. But what if you could keep those costs in check, or even reduce them? It’s not a pipe dream; it’s a possibility when you partner with MSD, Inc.’s Energy Services Team.

Why Should You Care About Energy Audits?

Approximately 30% of a facility’s operating budget is spent on energy, and guess what? The lion’s share of that consumption is devoured by HVAC and lighting systems. So, whether you’re the owner of a manufacturing plant or the manager of a commercial office building, taking control of your energy usage is a surefire way to improve your bottom line.

A Three-Tiered, Client-Centric Approach

Our team at MSD uses a three-tiered, client-centric approach that focuses on Targeted Modernization & Optimization (TM&O), Energy Conservation Measure Implementation, and Customized Maintenance Programs.

Targeted Modernization & Optimization (TM&O)

The first step is identifying those energy-guzzling systems that are draining your operational and maintenance budgets. After conducting a detailed evaluation of your facility’s systems and energy usage data, we outline appropriate Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) tailored to eliminate waste. And guess what? We don’t just stop at identifying the problems; we take it a step further by providing a high-level project scope, estimated budget, and even the ROI for each ECM proposed.

Energy Conservation Measure Implementation

Once you’ve selected the ECMs that align with your budget and goals, it’s time to turn those plans into reality. Our team will provide firm, fixed quotes for the engineering, design, and installation of HVAC, Building Automation, Electrical, and Lighting systems. We work hand-in-hand with you from concept through completion to ensure the project is delivered on-time and within budget.

Customized Maintenance Programs

The savings don’t just stop after the initial project; they continue with proper planned maintenance. Without it, normal wear and tear will degrade your systems over time. That’s where our Customized Maintenance Programs come in. Designed to fit your specific needs and budget, our flexible programs will keep your facility operating at peak efficiency, extending the life of your investment.

It’s More Than Just Savings

While the financial benefits are undeniable, there’s more to it than that. Reducing your facility’s energy consumption doesn’t just save you money; it also helps protect the environment and reduces your company’s carbon footprint. Sustainability is not just a buzzword; it’s a business imperative in today’s world.

Why Regular Drain Cleaning is Essential for Facility Management

By | blog

Our team is genuinely committed to ensuring the optimal performance of your facility’s drainage systems, and we’ve got the tech to back it up. Here’s why regular maintenance shouldn’t be overlooked.

Cost-Efficiency and Longevity

One of the core values that drive us is providing accurate and cost-efficient solutions. Drain problems can be a significant burden, both in terms of time and resources. A well-maintained drainage system not only performs better but also has a longer lifespan, saving you the costs associated with frequent repairs or replacements.

Cutting-Edge Technology

We’ve made substantial investments in the latest drain technology, aiming for nothing less than top-notch service. Let’s delve into a few:

  • High-Pressure Water Jetting – This green tech uses water—just water—to clear out even the most stubborn blockages in large drains. It’s so efficient that in many cases, we can restore your drains to “like new” conditions. For smaller applications, we offer mini high-pressure water jetting as well.
  • Digital Drain Imaging and 3D Location – Our technicians use digital color CCD imaging and a 6-channel tracker to pinpoint the exact issue plaguing your drainage system. You get a visual representation of the problem, eliminating all guesswork.
  • High Horsepower Cable Machines – The highest horsepower cable machines in the industry are at our disposal to tackle the toughest jobs, saving you both time and money.

Tailored Solutions for Unique Problems

Every business is different, and so are the demands on its drainage systems. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Whether it’s general cable cleaning to cut through debris or hydro-jetting to clean the system walls, we’ve got you covered.

Prompt and Professional Service

Time is money, especially when drainage issues bring your operations to a halt. Our response team is quick and professional, aiming to get you back in business ASAP.

Scheduled Maintenance Programs

For those who are particularly concerned about “up-time,” we offer custom-tailored, scheduled maintenance programs. These programs are designed to keep your drainage system running smoothly, giving you peace of mind and preventing costly shutdowns.


Maintaining your facility’s drainage system is non-negotiable for effective facility management. At MSD, Inc., we’re here to provide the best service using the latest technology. Don’t wait for an emergency to take action. A well-maintained drainage system is an efficient one, and we’re here to help you achieve just that.

5 Benefits of VDC Coordination in Facility Services

By | blog

As the construction landscape continuously evolves, it’s essential to adopt state-of-the-art technologies that enhance project outcomes while reducing operational friction. At MSD, Inc., our Virtual Design Construction (VDC) Coordination Group specializes in turning your facility dreams into reality, providing a wealth of advantages in the process. Here, we’ll explore the top five benefits of utilizing VDC Coordination for your facility services.

1. Precise 3D Models for Accurate Implementation

Our VDC Group utilizes Revit technology, paired with real-world materials and equipment from our custom libraries, to create highly accurate 3D models of mechanical systems. These models showcase every single component within your building plans, ensuring that all systems are properly spaced for optimal facility access.

2. Streamlined Sheet Metal Manufacturing

Our sheet metal manufacturing process is meticulously designed to minimize inefficiencies. Starting with design load calculations and proceeding to cost estimates, we ensure that all sheet metal components fit perfectly into the 3D building model. This allows us to coordinate effectively with you and other trades, ensuring that every piece is accounted for and fits perfectly into the overall architectural plan. Our team then electronically submits the file to our in-house sheet metal shop for manufacturing, in line with the project schedule.

3. Efficient Plumbing & Piping Fabrication

Much like our approach to sheet metal, our plumbing and piping fabrication process is a well-oiled machine. Through a combination of design calculations, size estimations, and cost analyses, we make sure that all components are perfectly incorporated into the Plumbing & Piping 3D building models. This ensures a streamlined fabrication process, allowing us to work orders by pipe types, building areas, and system assemblies directly from our virtual models.

4. Real-Time Collaboration and Coordination

Our VDC models can be uploaded into existing architectural and structural models, offering a collaborative approach that ensures all elements fit perfectly during construction. This provides you, the owner, and all associated trades an opportunity to work cohesively, making necessary adjustments in real-time to guarantee a seamless building process.

5. Long-Term Asset

Once construction is complete, our 3D models don’t just disappear—they serve as a lasting resource. These models are available electronically for field installation throughout the project and can be accessed by the owner post-turnover, offering a long-term facility management asset that can be invaluable for future modifications or expansions.

Transforming Your Dreams Into Reality

Our VDC Coordination Group is committed to delivering top-tier service that goes beyond mere construction; we aim to be a committed partner in transforming your facility dreams into a concrete reality. By utilizing our expertly crafted 3D models and collaborative approach, we make your facility construction smoother, more efficient, and tailored to meet both your short and long-term needs.

Interested in leveraging these benefits for your next project? Let’s talk and make those dreams a reality. Contact us to learn more about how MSD, Inc.’s VDC Coordination can take your project to the next level.
