A maintenance technician with Planned Cos. took home the gold at a recent competition hosted by the New Jersey Apartment Association, earning him a visit to a national event in San Diego.
The Parsippany-based service provider announced that Albert Kasneci represented New Jersey at the National Apartment Association’s Maintenance Mania event, following his victory at the NJAA version of the competition last month. More than 75 of New Jersey’s best maintenance professionals competed in a series of challenges ranging from fixing a toilet to changing a ceiling fan blade, all to be performed in a matter of minutes.
“It’s an honor to represent Planned Companies in the annual contest,” said Kasneci, who called the competition “an incredible showcase of our industry’s dedicated trade professionals.”
As local winner and finalist, Kasneci was slated to take on experts from around the country in a similar event. He is part of a fast-growing team with Planned Cos., which provides building maintenance services to help improve system reliability, minimize downtime, track inventory, monitor equipment conditions and reduce the potential costs associated with unit replacement.
“We have observed a constant need for knowledgeable maintenance specialists for both commercial and residential properties,” said Robert Francis, CEO of Planned Cos.
“Trade professionals are the unsung heroes of the service industry,” Francis added. “Maintenance Mania provides an opportunity to recognize those who play such an important role in keeping properties operating optimally.”
Planned Cos.’ maintenance services include handy-porters, handymen, painters, superintendents, building engineers and 24-hour emergency crews, which are offered throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Atlanta and San Francisco.
