Robert's Mechanical Services was established in 1989 by owner and operator, Robert Barbo. Robert's vision was to provide highly qualified, technically experienced and specialized services to his clients. Robert began by providing local industries with general contract maintenance. Eventually the demand from the industry and Robert's experience allowed for the expansion of the various industries Robert was able to provide services for. Over the years, RMS has become a fully equipped service company that is able to provide on site maintenance and repairs to it's clients. Today, RMS is a leader in the field service industry providing support to numerous companies including the Oil and Gas, Petro-Chemical, Pulp and Paper and Power Generation Industries. RMS continues to exceed client expectations with attention to quality in a safe and efficient working environment.
