The BP Group Hosts Its Annual Holiday Party

| Category: Blog, Featured

On Saturday, December 1st, we hosted our annual holiday party at Russo’s on the Bay and celebrated 40 years in business alongside company leaders, employees, their spouses, and those who have helped us build a successful business throughout the years.

Honored at the event were the company founders, John Losey and Robert Barbera, for their hard work in founding and growing The BP Group to what it is today. We also acknowledged three employees who received gold watches to honor their 20 years of dedication to working at The BP Group – something we truly value and appreciate.

We welcomed our new employees with our longstanding tradition of asking them to sing a song and raffled off everything from a vacation to a TV. Attendees dined then danced to the sounds from the DJ, all while a digital backdrop featured images from the company throughout the past 40 years.

As a surprise, The BP Group employees gifted founders, John and Robert, with a mini getaway to show their appreciation for the amazing company and partnership they have upheld and sustained as leaders.

The holiday party is an annual event whose planning is lead by General Manager, Nancy Falco. Nancy enjoys planning the event because of the fun and excitement it brings.

“The party has come a long way – from the garage at the warehouse in Greenpoint to this great location, it’s much more exciting and a reflection of how far we have come as a business,” said Nancy when asked about the event.

She continued, “We host the party on a Saturday so our employees can enjoy themselves. This is a chance for them to socialize, get to know others, eat some great food, and really, just have a great time.”

While Nancy explained that the event requires a lot of planning and coordination, the leadership feels this is an important event that shows how much they appreciate their employees and it is great for the culture overall.

This year’s party was particularly special since The BP Group hit the incredible milestone of being in business for 40 years. From its humble beginnings of two people out of an apartment in the Bronx to becoming a company of more than 170 employees, The BP Group has created opportunity, careers, and community in what it is today.

We Use Data and Talent for Making Business Better

| Category: Blog, Featured

BP Group - HVAC Industry Leaders in NYC

In today’s workforce, there is no shortage of talented individuals. However, there is a shortage of those choosing to pursue traditional “service” type jobs, which includes field service workers in the HVAC industry. This is partly due to the Millennial workforce, which views this profession as a vocation (instead of a sought-after career) and a job that is not part of the “college to real-world” path they feel is necessary to pursue due to the pressures of societal norms.

But this perception is not necessarily reality. A slew of highly intelligent and skilled field service workers are changing the way we do business in the HVAC industry. Our software platforms and these professionals who work at the intersection of service and technology, enable us to rise above and disrupt how our company conducts, analyzes, and completes business. This is next level BP Group and this is how we are using our data and technology to attract talent and make our business better.

What We Do at the BP Group

Through internal motivation and a push from leadership, BP has transformed business processes by leveraging new technology partners and data that was previously unavailable or difficult to obtain, organize, and parse. This data allows us to have a better understanding of how, when, and where we spend our money and provides transparency between our company and our customers.

For us, our interest in technology and data helps us analyze customer behavior, employee personalities and performance, our business finances, and our overall purchasing power. It helps us understand behaviors that could change how we do business and the finances we have to support our decision-making.

The Takeaways

From this overall implementation and our use of data, here are a few key takeaways:

  • Using data creates more transparency for clients and an overall better relationship
  • Analyzing data provides helpful insight into making smarter financial decisions and provides buying power when working with vendors and other providers
  • As the availability and use of augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IOT) changes the way we do business, we need to embrace it and learn how to use and leverage the data for doing business better
  • Data insights can make a business quicker, cleaner, smarter, more cost-effective

As the industry continues to innovate and adapt, we must stay ahead of the curve and ensure we don’t lose ground – or talent – and keep pace to grow and make an impact. Our excitement and ability to embrace and implement technology will help us better serve our customers and provide more opportunities to talent to thrive.

SMARDT CHILLER Group logoUS Chiller Services partners with SMARDT Chiller


Smardt Chiller and US Chiller Services announced the formation of two new relationships on January 10, 2018, with service provider contracts executed for New York Tri State area and regional Arabian Gulf markets. Both contracts are effective immediately, and give US Chillers priority access to Smardt chiller products and services as well as the award-winning CPECS chiller plant energy optimization technology.

Smardt is the pioneer and world leader in oil-free centrifugal chiller technology, based in Montreal and with additional factories in Stuttgart, Melbourne, New York and Guangzhou. It now has some 7000 Smardt high-efficiency low-maintenance chillers in operation across the globe, and over 900 chiller models on offer from 60 tons to 2500 tons capacity.

US Chiller Services is a global independent large tonnage chiller and energy services company with operations throughout the United States and the Arabian Gulf. US Chiller Services provides specialist services for large tonnage centrifugal chillers, liquid chillers and energy solutions, as well as operation and maintenance services for the district cooling industry. The company specializes in the repair, maintenance, retrofit and service of all OEM makes and models of large tonnage chillers ranging in size from 100 tons to 10,000 tons. It aims to provide unrivaled services and solutions to the liquid chiller, chilled water plant and district cooling plant industry. The company’s approach is to make sure that chillers, chilled water plants and district cooling plants operate at optimum efficiency.

Energy Efficiency and Cost of Chiller Ownership

Driven by global climate change and sustainability concerns, Smardt’s rapid growth reflects increased market focus on energy efficiency and lifetime total cost of chiller ownership. “If you’re a building owner, a Smardt chiller is a no-brainer”, according to US Chillers managing partner Dan Mizesko. “Your lifetime savings in energy costs, maintenance and repair costs compared with older lubricated equipment fall straight to your bottom line, and we’ve seen total plant savings of over 60%”, he said today.

“Our joint opportunities are enormous, with US Chiller Services responsible for hundreds of thousands of tons of aging chiller plants and superb HVAC engineering resources in both New York and the Middle East”, Jared Peters said today. Peters is general manager of Smardt’s growing Solutions division. “And when we drive down HVAC energy consumption together across this big base, improved owner profits last throughout the life of the chiller plant”, he said.

“We’re really excited to be working at last with the Smardt technology, products and solutions”, said Mizesko. “This will make a big contribution to our building owners”.

“This is a new partnership that can be very big for both companies”, said Turbocor founder and Smardt chairman Roger Richmond-Smith, “and together we can drive it a long way”.
