About Us

Daniel Doran started as a laborer in the construction trades doing mechanical insulation in 2012 (think Mike Rowe’s dirty jobs).

Through a set of unique circumstances in 2013, he was able to partner with a couple of people to found Mechanical Firestop Services while maintaining his role with his employer. Over the course of the next few years, Daniel realized he loved the business side of things and, at the end of 2016, he bought out his partner and set out on his own.

In 2021, he took some big steps to grow the business. We acquired Wingpex Construction, which took us down the road of expanding our service offerings. We also launched into the Portland market in 2021.

2022 was a huge year for us at Doran Holdings. We grew by 50% again with the now rebranded Barrier Technologies. We also acquired a minority stake in High Point Gutter and acquired Sta-built Construction from Peter Stadeli, keeping him as the CEO to continue forward with the vision of that business.

By the time you are reading this, we’ve probably done another deal, but you get the idea. Daniel likes to build, buy, and grow businesses. He won’t ever stop. He’ll get back to you quickly!
