MC Industrial, Inc., an independent McCarthy company, was established in 2005 to serve the specialized construction needs
of the industrial market nationwide. We’ve built our reputation on decades of proven McCarthy experience in the automotive,
food and beverage, aviation/aerospace, manufacturing and power markets. And, if your project includes new “shade and shelter”
and you need it fast, MC Industrial is an authorized distributor/builder of a variety of pre-engineered metal buildings.
We haven’t forgotten where we came from. Our procedures and resources are genuine McCarthy. Our industrial focus, however,
assures our clients the right services, thoughtfully planned and executed, at the right time and price.
PaRtN ERsh iP
Even though we’re MC Industrial, our core values are those that have energized McCarthy for more than a century. Old-fashioned
principles such as taking responsibility for your actions, integrity, respect for the individual, and the importance of relationships
drive our business. And given the fact that every MC Industrial salaried employee is also an employee owner (of the McCarthy parent
company), you can count on each of us to deliver above and beyond your expectations.
You’ll know us by the company we keep ...
MC Industrial is making a name for itself in industrial construction. Just ask any of our clients.

What is your definition of a successful project?
Is it one that gets your assembly line up and running faster? Or, is it a smoothly run outage project that results in better service
to your customers? Maybe it’s the project that’s completed without interrupting your on-going operations. Or, is it all of these?
Whatever your definition, success is far more complex than the proverbial “on-time, on-budget” answer most often heard in our industry.
Whether your project is large or small, tough and complex, or just a simple fix, MC Industrial delivers success on your terms.
