Therma Corporation, founded in 1967 by Joe and Nicki Parisi, is a full-service design/build mechanical contractor located in San Jose, California. Therma Corporation performed the mechanical installation of many of the founding semiconductor, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area and many are still Therma’s valued customers today. Therma has also performed HVAC installation in local office and public buildings that total millions of square feet. Therma has a solution-based approach that is tailored to each client, resulting in efficient and economical designs. Whether it’s a “one off” custom part or a full-service design/build mechanical system, Therma Corporation is an expert at finding the perfect configuration for each client. If it can be imagined - Therma can build it.
Therma is always striving to improve and develop new construction methods that utilize the most current technology to facilitate today’s needs as well as looking ahead to future demands. Therma’s 280,000-square-foot headquarters includes a 60,000-square-foot ASME-certified fabrication shop that incorporates automated systems, lasers and the newest welding technology.

Therma Corporation employs more pipe fitter, plumber and sheet metal union trained craftsmen than any other Bay Area mechanical contractor.
