Two additional generations of Fraser family leadership have maintained those principles and helped the company grow into one of the largest and most diverse mechanical contracting firms in the region. The company, still located on the original property in Newton, has been recognized by the commonwealth as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) under the third generation’s leadership of CJ Fraser.

Fraser Engineering’s reputation for excellence is largely due to a team composed of some of the most talented people in the industry. Fraser’s technicians are all highly skilled in their respective fields and provide the finest craftsmanship on mechanical, HVAC, plumbing, process piping, hygienic piping, and petroleum projects.
