Livonia, MI — Robert McQueen, Service Manager at W.J. O'Neil Company announced today that the company was awarded GreenStar designation by the Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA).

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2008, W.J. O'Neil was recently awarded a contract by Volkswagen of America to fabricate and install utility piping at the automaker's new automotive plant under construction in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

W.J. O'Neil opened an office and a 25,000-square-foot fabricating facility in Chattanooga. The state-of-the-art facility allows the company to fabricate in-house so costs, schedule and engineering are controlled, and safety and quality are maximized. The facility is fully operational employing local pipefitters and plumbers.

"Our environmental values are right in line with the strong environmental commitment of Chattanooga and Volkswagen," said President John O'Neil Sr.
