Licensed engineer Craig Vernick established Vernick & Associates in 1985 after learning the intricacies of cleanroom design while working for the large companies that dominated the industry at the time. His emphasis then remains our guiding principle today: to provide clients in all industries with superior service along with custom cleanrooms meeting specific, often rigorous requirements.
Contact us at (216) 373-2330 today to discuss your controlled-environment needs. Our experts have the experience and expertise to deliver an efficient, cost-effective solution. Based in Cleveland, we are proud to have satisfied clients throughout Ohio — including Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, and Dayton — and points beyond.
While Craig concentrated on the design and engineering side of the business, he formed partnerships with experienced contractors who handled the actual cleanroom installation. He discovered Cleveland commercial construction firm Architectural Interior Restorations in the 1990s, and its crew of carpenters has worked on the bulk of Vernick’s projects ever since.
Our companies became even closer in early 2015, when AIR ownership transitioned from founder John Textoris to his son Trip, who acquired Vernick & Associates at the same time. The deal had been in the works for five years. As Craig Vernick prepared for retirement, he took Trip under his wing and taught him the ins and outs of our very specialized business. Craig still consults when needed.
Strength in Numbers
Although the firms remain separate entities, we complement one another. Having our own pool of professional contractors sets us apart from many of our competitors, and we have been able to find efficiencies by sharing administrative and warehouse staff with our sister company. Formalizing the relationship allows Trip to grow both businesses without compromising the family atmosphere we share.
Trip Textoris has been working at the construction firm since he was 12, when he swept the warehouse floor to earn money for a new bicycle. He began fieldwork at 16 and continued swinging a hammer during breaks from high school and even while working on his accounting degree at Cleveland State University. His early experience included helping to install cleanrooms for Vernick, and the seed was planted.
Continuing a Tradition of Service
Today Vernick remains the Midwest’s go-to source for custom cleanrooms, less-restrictive environmental rooms and modular offices, and the finest equipment and components available. With our extensive experience in the field and unwavering commitment to customer service, there’s no better choice for successful cleanroom design and implementation.
