BARBERTON, Ohio--Fire protection, inspection and service provider S.A. Comunale announced May 9 the addition of a 14th branch office, this one in Washington D.C. Comunale, which does about $120 million in business annually, was acquired last October by EMCOR Group, a $5 billion company that does mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services. Mike Hughes, who previously served as sales and project manager in Comunale's Philadelphia office, will run the new D.C. branch. "By establishing a permanent presence in the Washington DC area, we are ensuring that EMCOR clients in the region are able to fully benefit from our technical expertise," Stephen A. Comunale said in a statement.
