ST. LOUIS, MO — Haberberger Inc., the St. Louis-based mechanical contractor, announces the addition of Richard Lackey, Sam Haberberger, and Kyle Jones to the company’s growing team.

Lackey was recently hired as Vice President of Sheet Metal Operations and brings with him more than 40 years of experience in sheet metal estimation and operations management. In his new role, he will assist in developing standards, guidelines, and principles to help the sheet metal division grow and eventually expand, with the addition of a new, 16,000-square-foot heavy metal shop Haberberger is creating. Lackey has worked at various sheet metal shops in the St. Louis area as a Journeyman, Foreman, General Foreman, Shop and Field Superintendent, Estimator, Project Manager, General Manager, and Owner. For 10 years, he and his wife owned and operated Lackey Sheet Metal, a 24-person sheet metal shop that specialized in industrial and architectural sheet metal. Lackey is experienced in the industrial and architectural sheet metal and large commercial HVAC markets and has performed work for institutional, laboratory, clean room, industrial, hospital, and the manufacturing sectors of the sheet metal industry.

The youngest son of former President Neil Haberberger and a member of Haberberger’s fourth generation, Sam has been hired as a Project Estimator and Building Information Modeling Automation and Software Engineer. Previously, Sam spent five years working as a Simulation and Automation Software Engineer within the Defense Industry in Huntsville, Alabama. He holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in aerospace engineering in the field of spacecraft navigation and estimation from Missouri S&T.

Jones, Mechanical Engineer, has joined Haberberger’s service department as a Project Manager and Design Engineer. Jones has experience sizing duct and pipe and is well-versed with load calculation, psychometrics, energy modeling, code review, and specification review. He also possesses background in building modeling and is familiar with Revit and AutoCAD, as well as the production of coordinated drawings. Before joining Haberberger, Jones spent seven years working at a St. Louis-area design engineer firm. He holds a Professional Engineering license, issued by the State of Missouri, and a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
