In 1987, Mark Sykes started M & S Heating and Air Conditioning, a one-man operation primarily servicing the many friends he had made during his years in the apartment maintenance field. He soon found that his customers wanted and needed more than just heating and air conditioning, and began expanding his service offerings to include plumbing, electric, and general contracting services like structural repair and remodeling. He incorporated the company in 1987 as Combined Services to reflect a “one call does it all” philosophy, providing his customers a single-source for all their mechanical contracting needs.
Unlike many companies who use independent contractors, Combined Services has invested in building a highly qualified team of employee technicians, all fully trained and licensed. The cost of maintaining an employee staff has paid off for the company; it allows more quality control over the services provided, and it ensures consistency and reliability of the staff – some of whom have been with the company for twenty years.
In 1991, Mark’s wife Suzanne joined the company as president, leveraging her experience in property management to expand company operations and diversify the client base to include both commercial and residential customers. In 2015, the company outgrew its original Decatur headquarters and moved to a 12,500 square-foot office and warehouse in Tucker, GA.
Combined Services Inc. is fully licensed and insured, and on-call 24 hours for emergencies. The company is licensed in eighteen states in electric, plumbing, and HVAC work.
