Kisby Shore Mechanical Contractors has been Atlantic City’s leader in commercial plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning services for more than 50 years. We have built a reputation for delivering high-quality work, fast service, and competitive pricing throughout South Jersey.

Kisby Shore has been a family-run business since the beginning and today, is owned and operated by the Lees family. Jim Lees of Atlantic City, a former vice president of marketing at Atlantic City Electric, bought the company in 1998 from George Kisby, son of the original founder. Five years later, James Lees Jr. joined Kisby Shore to help run the family business. We maintain the excellent Kisby Shore reputation that began in 1951.

Examples of the projects that we have completed can be seen throughout South Jersey. Since Kisby Shore has been based in Atlantic City since 1951, you can see the properties where we have been proud to work as a mechanical contractor, including our casinos, schools, hospitals as well as commercial and municipal buildings. Our goal is to provide every project with the best possible mechanical contracting services available.
