Life Science Service & Maintenance

“We can so often tell clients that, having built their facility, we know it from the inside out. That means we provide maintenance and service quickly, efficiently, cost-effectively.”

Roy Robblee, NSMC Service & Small Projects

NSMC brings over 30 years of mechanical design and installation experience to maintenance and service customers. The company’s knowledge and understanding of the specialized plumbing and piping systems in life sciences facilities help biopharm companies stay up and running—and get back to operations fast in the event of an emergency. NSMC offers preventive maintenance and 24-hour emergency service on all the mechanical systems in life sciences labs, pilot plants, and large-scale production facilities. Our Service and Maintenance department also performs small installations, including design/build services on smaller projects.
