Chandler, Ariz. – Kovach Enclosure Systems, LLC of Chandler, AZ, is a newly formed company owned by Steve Kovach IV and construction industry veteran, Kelly Sands.

With roughly 400 total employees, Kovach Enclosure Systems projects $80 million of revenue in 2020. “This is the classic definition of opportunity meets preparedness,” said co-owner, Kelly Sands.

Steve Kovach IV and Kelly Sands, kicked off the purchase with a culture celebration for employees and their families in Tempe, AZ. “I am thrilled to see pride that every employee feels for what we do and the smiles on their children’s faces,” remarked Kovach.
