About Our Team!
Stephen Minnich, Principal
Minnich Mechanical Design is a culmination of 35 years experience, dedication, and passion for the HVAC industry. Stephen Minnich, the owner, started as an apprentice/helper in 1980 while going to trade school for HVAC/R. He quickly worked his way up to serviceman/installer and installed his first boiler in 1981. Always trying to improve his game, Steve was a Journeymen Sheet Metal Worker for Local 73 and a licensed electrician by 1987. His real passion is for hydronic heating systems and has been an expert in the field for quite some time. He has also taught HVAC at Harper College in Palatine and has worked HVAC Technical Support for a Fortune 100 company.
It is with this dedication that Minnich Mechanical Design will approach every job we do for you.
Barb Zimmerman Minnich, CFO
Barb is an integral part of our team as she's the one who keeps score. She takes care of the BUSINESS part of the business like Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Taxes, Insurance, Payroll, and the like allowing Tim and I to do what we do best...designing, servicing, and installing at a very high level. Without Barb, we'd be a rudderless ship!
