Our History



The year was 1958, Eisenhower was President of the United States and Wayne Bruner of Columbus, Ohio founded a little mechanical firm he called Bruner Corporation. Business was conducted in a small cement block building without computers, faxes and cell phones. Wayne Bruner was a hands-on, handshake-type contractor from the old-school; business was done with a handshake, instead of a contract. Up until 1980, Wayne did much of the work himself assisted by his two plumbing service employees.

In 1980, Wayne Bruner was ready for retirement and Bruner Corporation was purchased by F. Randolph Sleeper, thus entering an age of change and growth.

Sleeper’s immediate goal was to build up the service contract work. Some years later Mark Wenger, was hired to develop the Bruner Service Division. Wenger recalls, “There wasn’t much to oversee at first, in fact we started with no technicians.”

Under Sleeper and Wenger’s leadership, Bruner has continuously focused on company efficiency, growth and employee morale. All this hard work has paid off as Bruner is consistently recognized as a leading employer of plumbers and pipefitters in Central Ohio and one of the most recognized mechanical contractors in the area. Business First of Columbus consistently ranks Bruner Corporation as one of the largest mechanical retrofit & HVAC service contractors in Central Ohio.

Since 1958 the world around us has changed tremendously, but Bruner Corporation continues to be locally owned and operated providing complete mechanical system services to businesses throughout Central Ohio and the Midwest. From system design and evaluation to guaranteed preventive maintenance services, Bruner customers enjoy the benefits of system reliability, energy savings, investment protection and a more productive work environment.

As Bruner Corporation looks back on the changes that have unfolded since it’s beginning, it can’t help but also look to the future. Bruner Corporation is led by a LEAN focused management team poised to develop and implement solutions that meet your construction and mechanical contracting needs. We are committed to building long term relationships based on trust, satisfaction and dependable service.
