Richard Luhm, a life-long Memphian has been in the refrigeration business since the age of five, spending his summers working with his father in his residential air conditioning business. After graduation from high school and attending The University of Memphis in the early 70’s, he became intrigued with the “low temp” side of the business. As a result Richard ultimately joined the staff of Maynard Food Store Equipment in Memphis, TN.

In 1984 Richard was part of a group that purchased the Memphis Branch of Maynard Food Store Equipment. The company was rebranded and the name was changed to Systems-Plus Refrigeration, Inc. where Richard was named President and General Manager. In 1990 the company focus was pared down to service only and was ultimately acquired by Sibley Services, a local mechanical contractor, becoming its low temp division. Richard used this time to hone his business skills and further develop relationships with customers while managing this division of a national company.

In 2001 Richard formed Memphis Mechanical Services, and within three months the firm was incorporated due to its quick success. Over the years Memphis Mechanical has built a strong team of service specialists with diverse skills that cover the wide range of needs in the commercial refrigeration industry.

According to Richard Luhm, President and Chairman, Memphis Mechanical has grown and evolved to a team focused and customer-centric culture. “The people at Memphis Mechanical are like family. We truly care about each other and we all share a common belief that the customer is why we are here. Everything we do is so that in the end, the customer realizes the value in having professionals that care, service their equipment. That’s what makes it so great…we all believe it,” Richard Luhm said.
