About Us & History

Our mission statement at AIME is to produce superior quality products and services at a fair market price, in order to provide a stable and rewarding experience for our customers, vendors and employees." 

Clay Lau, Vice President, General Manager and partner of AIME, along with the other 60 employees of the company, in the field and in their shop on Pennington Avenue in South Baltimore follow the mission statement.

Founded by Ken Harris, AIME began life primarily as a mechanical contractor servicing the petroleum distribution centers in the Baltimore/Washington area. Lau came on board with AIME in 1979 and stayed there until family obligations called him to Florida. In 1999, Harris was approached by Bill Polacek of JWF of Johnstown, Inc. Polacek wanted to acquire AIME to enhance JWF's capabilities and to establish a satellite location in the Baltimore/Washington area. 

Shortly after JWF bought AIME; Lau received a call from Polacek, asking him to come back on-board. In November 2000, he and his family packed up and moved back north to take on the challenge.   

While diversification would appear to be the key to AIME's success, seldom are things as simple as they seem. "What we have found key to our success and survival over the past 39 years has been the relationships that we have formed with our employees, our customers, our vendors and JWF with our own Mobile Equipment and Cranes, AIME is equipped to handle any project from the smallest to the largest.
