Air Control Engineering was established in 1973 by Ralph McLain PE, and incorporated in 1979. The company started with two employees, providing installation and service of residential air conditioning and heating systems and has since evolved into a full service mechanical contracting firm, employing from 35 to 45 employees with an annual payroll of over one million dollars.

The Air Control Engineering office, warehouse and metal fabrication facilities are located at 1119 Pridmore Drive in Columbus, MS.

Air Control Engineering operates a Commercial/Industrial division. Job sizes range from less than $100 up to $2.5 million.

Air Control Engineering typically serves customers within a 60 mile radius of Columbus, MS, which encompasses Starkville, West Point, and Tupelo in Mississippi and several towns and cities in Alabama, including Tuscaloosa. Occasionally, we go outside this area to perform work for customers with whom we have an established relationship or if the job is a good fit with our company at the particular time. We have traveled as far as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic to serve our customers.

We are committed to serving the needs of our existing customers and are always interested in developing new relationships.
