We are ready to serve you!
Bates Mechanical, Inc., was founded in 2001, as a strictly commercial plumbing contractor performing waste, vent, and water installations for all commercial applications. Today, we have grown to become a thriving company, employing more than 40 full-time staff members, consultants, and plumbers. Over the years, we’ve worked hard to provide the courteous, honest and responsive service and top-notch technical performance that have not only earned us numerous awards, but even more importantly, have won us a cadre of loyal clients who seek us out whenever they need plumbing work.
Our projects typically range from as small as $2K to up to $1.5 million. We specialize in new construction, medical facility installations, upscale restaurant projects, and tenant retrofits, and we are certified in medical gas piping installations and the setting of medical gas equipment. We also install storm drainage and natural gas piping.

The Owner’s Background:
My experience in dealing with plumbing projects dates back to my childhood. I was born into a household where plumbing was a way of life. My commercial plumbing experience came from working with my father, Jimmy Bates, who co-ran a union outfit here in the Atlanta area. I worked there during the summers while in high school, and full-time into my 20s. Working with my father gave me a passion for the plumbing industry and a foundation of knowledge that has stuck with me my entire life.When I was ready to go to college, I chose Southern Tech and graduated from there with a mechanical engineering degree. This knowledge has been and will continue to be helpful in certain aspects of building and design applications. However, it is my years of working in the field that aid me the most with the plumbing industry I am involved with.
I am married to Mary Jane Bates, who as respectfully stood beside me through the sometimes stressful and emotional growth periods of this plumbing company. We have three children: Matt, Marley, and Micah.
The Bates Commitment
Since our founding, Bates Mechanical has completed many successful projects. We’ve tackled each one with great care, strategy and planning. We strive to offer the owners and general contractors we work with the very best plumbing systems possible, within the budgets and parameters needed to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace.
As the owner of Bates Mechanical, I realize one of the primary keys to our success has been our excellent workforce. Some of the men who work here have been with us since the inception of the company, which is an accomplishment in and of itself in today’s workplace. We offer a full benefits package to attract quality personnel—and keep them on staff. We have a great group of hard-working, dedicated, dependable, and highly-skilled people who work at this company, and it is a privilege to serve them and work with them. It is hard for me to put into words just how much passion I have for the people who work here.
