Warwick Mechanical Group is a full service mechanical contracting firm, providing mechanical systems for commercial, industrial, medical, and institutional facilities throughout Southeastern Virginia, Central Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina.
Formerly known as Warwick Plumbing & Heating Corporation, the firm highlighted its new name and branding in 2016 emphasizing its four operating divisions (Mechanical Contracting, Industrial Contracting, Mechanical Service, and Fabrication) to better represent the company’s capabilities and differentiate its scope of services.
The company was incorporated in 1952 in the old county of Warwick, now the city of Newport News. E. B. “Pete” Meekins headed the company until he retired in 1970. Upon Mr. Meekin’s retirement, Spurgeon P. Toney and George R. Goodson, Jr. became the principal stockholders and grew the company to annual volume in excess of ten million dollars by the early 80s. Toney served as President until 1984 when he retired. Upon his retirement, George Goodson, Jr. then became President and CEO.
In 1980 G. Royden Goodson, III joined the company and later in 1990, his brother Pax Goodson also joined. Collectively, with James Jarman, vice-president of operations and William A. Phelps, Jr., vice-president of estimating, they grew the company to an annual volume in excess of twenty million dollars.
In 1993, Royden Goodson assumed the position of president and continued to grow the company. Warwick established its piping fabrication shop in 1995, followed by the introduction of Mechanical Service in 1998. By 2008, the company had achieved a significant milestone, surpassing the $100 million mark in volume. In 2010, Warwick ventured into the sheet metal duct industry by acquiring Minton & Roberson Company. In 2016, Royden assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer.
Steve Parker’s association with Warwick dates back to 1983 when he first joined the company as a project manager. He was promoted to Vice President in 1999 and took on the role of Executive Vice President in 2007. As the company continued to grow, he transitioned to become Warwick’s Chief Operating Officer in 2011 and was named the company’s President in 2016. Steve plays a pivotal role in shaping the company’s vision and exemplifies its fundamental values.
