History

EMCOR was established in 1995, as a result of the reorganisation of Jamaica Water Supply following its emergence from bankruptcy.

Jamaica Water Supply Company was launched in 1966 to provide water to Nassau County, Long Island, and Queens, New York. The company expanded during the 1970s and diversified its operations away from the water utility sector, establishing specialised construction units, largely through a series of acquisitions. Jamaica Water Supply’s expansion continued throughout the 1980s, with the company taking on significant amounts of debt. This debt ultimately forced the company into launching a restructuring process, and the filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1993.

In 1995 Jamaica Water Supply emerged from bankruptcy and was rebranded as EMCOR, focusing more on key business segments related to its electrical and mechanical construction activities. The Company has since stabilised, and has established itself as a leading construction and industrial services company in the US. EMCOR is ranked 381st on the Fortune 500 list. The Company trades shares on the New York Stock Exchange and has a current market capitalisation of $3.62 billion.
