Our History

Valor Mechanical was founded in June 2006 by Ty Bestor. The dream, vision and current evolution of Valor was implemented in September 2012. Ty has over 38 years of experience in the mechanical construction industry. Ty was born and raised in a small, rural community in southeast Minnesota, which prompted his desire to own and operate a company with the same moral values, integrity, and trust found in his small-town community.

Who We Are

Valor Mechanical is a full-service commercial mechanical contractor originally established in Harmony, MN, and now operating out of their corporate headquarters in Rochester, MN. Valor operates on the following principle core values: integrity, trust and strong relationships, all with a high level of customer service. These values were instilled by the company CEO, Ty Bestor, and all Valor employees share in these values and in Ty’s business passion.

What We Do

The experienced team at Valor Mechanical listens to the customers’ needs and objectives, and then creates a customized solution for those needs. Valor creates cost-efficient solutions by allowing our team to approach every project from an engineering-first perspective. Before finalizing mechanical numbers, we explore each issue and concern with the project team. The main constants among our technicians, engineers and trained craftsmen are experience, dedication and a commitment to Valor’s core values.
