Allentown, PA – October 27, 2010 – PPL Energy Services is pleased to announce an initiative that will expand our capabilities throughout our operating region.  Effective January 1, 2011, three of our contracting companies – H.T. Lyons (Lehigh Valley, PA), General Mechanical Systems (Albany, NY), and Westech International, Inc. (Fishkill, NY) – will combine resources and operate as a single entity.

The new organization will provide commercial, institutional, and industrial engineering, construction and maintenance services as H.T. Lyons, Inc.  Westech has built a stellar reputation in the semi-conductor and technology markets and will operate as a specialty group within the organization. 

Operating as a single entity will enable us to better share resources, personnel, and expertise to efficiently respond to market opportunities from eastern Pennsylvania through New Jersey and North to the New York Capital region.  Each of these companies brings strengths to this initiative that will enable the consolidated group to offer enhanced services throughout our service territory.

H.T. Lyons is one of the largest mechanical contractors in Pennsylvania and currently operates throughout eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  Substantial design/build, service and major project experience has enabled H.T. Lyons to develop significant in-house estimating, engineering and project management resources that will immediately be available to support the New York operations.

Westech International, Inc. is located in Fishkill, NY and for many years has provided high quality mechanical and process services to support high-tech Fortune 500 companies, such as IBM.  H.T. Lyons has significant experience in high-tech projects and process piping that combined with Westech’s existing resources, will operate under the name of Westech Process Solutions.   This specialty group will serve technology-based customers from central Pennsylvania to the New York Capital region.
