In 1968, Marty Indursky decided he could surpass the company he worked for and do the job better. Marty left his position at a large New York Mechanical Contracting Firm where he was employed as a system designer and project engineer and opened his own HVAC company. Marty believed then, as he does now, that a single source for all HVAC-related disciplines would best serve the needs of building owners and general contractors. With little more than determination and a second mortgage on his new home, Marty set out to make his vision a reality. Marty’s first project was a residential humidifier installed for a cost of $100.
Since then, the business evolved to encompass all aspects of HVAC including total building energy management with integrated and computerized control systems. David Indursky, Marty’s youngest son and now President of Encon says, “My father built systems back in the mid-1970s that nobody was doing at the time. His vision for “green practices” was years ahead of the industry.” David now at the helm, intends to continue to stay ahead by being better and more creative than the competition.
David continues Marty’s tradition of providing outstanding, single-source contracting services for building owners and general contractors throughout New Jersey; bringing the founding principles and value Marty placed on family into the second generation of the business. Marty cultivated an atmosphere where employees became part of the family. He has always emphasized a balance between work and family. Still an active participant in many areas, Marty is always willing to jump in and support his team.
David was raised in the business – interning every summer both while in high school and college, and doing the “not-so-comfy” jobs. The reverse of special privileges often given to the 2nd generation. David worked hard, experienced every single job, and learned from the ground up.
David feels incredibly fortunate to be in a generational business and maintain a healthy family life – he admits it’s harder on the first generation than the second. David came on full-time in 1993 and worked his way up to president, David told Marty he was going to “do it differently” and Marty said, “go for it!” He’s most thankful for having an incredible working relationship with his father for over 26 years – which is rare for generational family businesses.
David’s vision is for Encon to continue to lead the industry over the next 50 years, both in the use of technology, growing the team, and working with customers who appreciate the value of partnering with Encon. “The most exciting thing for me is watching the team collectively doing projects, I never thought we’d be mature enough and competent to do,” says David. “I give so much credit to our team and am really proud of their work and the degree of complex projects they have completed.” Some of our top performers have been with the company over 40 years. “I have learned a lot from these folks and am grateful for the lessons they have taught me.”
While Marty taught David to be a problem-solver early on, at the same time his mother Micki taught him compassion. This “figure it out” mentality mixed with his compassion for people and charity is a common thread throughout the company, and a value instilled in their team. While Encon has always supported charities and the local community, David has taken it to the next level with the creation of Encon’s Rock & Bowl charity bowling event to benefit the Make -A-Wish Foundation, and David was recently named Chairman of The Board of Make-A-Wish New Jersey. David and the team are proud to have donated over half a million dollars to charities nationwide.
