Success Story: Table Rock Mechanical

Opportunity Knocks for Table Rock Mechanical

Table Rock Mechanical, subcontractor on The Portland Building Reconstruction Project, heard opportunity knock when Howard S. Wright, the project’s CMGC, called to ask if they would like to get involved in the historic project. The largest project in the mechanical piping company’s 4-year history, the Portland Building Reconstruction Project has given company owners Joseph Tavares and Mark Fisher the opportunity to prove their company’s capabilities on a large-scale project.

COBID certified and a participant in Oregon’s Emerging Small Business Program, Table Rock Mechanical is named after a famous rock formation along the Rogue River in Central Oregon. The rock formation, a landmark of pride for the people of the Rogue River Valley, also symbolizes Joe and Mark’s desire to lead a company that earns respect through quality work completed with integrity.

As a subcontractor to Temp-Control Mechanical Corp. (TCM), a mechanical and plumbing powerhouse in Portland, Table Rock provides mechanical piping services on the project. Working with TCM and Howard S. Wright on the project has provided just the right level of support and mentorship for the company. As a former employee of TCM, Joseph has taken advantage of the opportunity to reconnect with his old employer, reminding him of the efficiencies of partnering with one of the largest firms in Oregon.

Family and community are important to Table Rock co-owner Joe who is of Asian Pacific-Islander heritage with family roots in Hawaii. Despite having grown children, Joe volunteers as an athletic coach in Grants Pass because he believes that young people need more role models in their lives, particularly in the construction trades. He is proud to say that several of the kids he works with are interested in participating in the trades.
