The Brandt Legacy
When Sonny Brandt started a Dallas-based air conditioning company in 1952, he saw the opportunity created by a growing population and hot Texas summers. His strategic expansions over the years grew a small local business into a thriving leader in the construction, design, and service industries.
More than six decades later, Brandt is bigger and better than ever. From our days as Brandt Engineering, Brandt Mechanical, and Brandt Service in the 70s and 80s, the firm has grown to a suite of companies, offering full-service solutions as a single provider to large and complex construction and asset management projects.
Brandt added electrical division in the early 2000s. The Brandt Companies were created under the leadership of Barry Moore and Mark Zilbermann in an ever-expanding quest to provide our clients with on-time, in-budget construction service, complete commissioning assistance, and long-term facilities maintenance. We expanded into HVAC service and full-service MEP operations. In the 2010s, Brandt established the industrial division focusing directly on the unique needs of industrial clients. Expanding on the growing industrial market, Brandt acquired Magnum Engineering and Controls in 2019.
In 2022, Brandt was acquired by Southland Industries. This acquisition aligned with Brandt’s goal to become a truly national company that can better serve our customers, increase our industry influence towards more collaborative delivery approaches, and create additional opportunities for our employees.
