Thank you so kindly for your time to read this history. It is so appreciated!
Forster Plumbing Company is a five generation family tradition. The business began in the year 1898, though records only prevail from 1902. Today, upon the order desk is the toolbox that our Great-Grandfather traveled with to visit on appointments. His personal binder used for bidding at the turn of the Century lies within.
Our Great-Great Grandfather had a full intention to grow the business as indoor plumbing was becoming a luxury. He was known for a simple quote, “Change is Constant”. In his lifetime, he remarked that in his youth, “personal-business was attended outside while eating meals was done inside, solely to be transformed to eating outside was popular while personal-business was attended inside within his later years.”
The business in the early 1900’s was known for being a ‘2-horse and buggy’ business! Regrettably, my Great-Uncle while traveling at a high rate of speed to an emergency appointment cracked the rear wheel of the buggy. Many years later, that incident was a matter of many family conversations. The Company then transformed to a ‘Ford Model-T Truck’ that delivered products, while plumbers traveled on streetcars.
Business has changed significantly since those early days, though we are always reminded each day of our loved ancestry. Forster Plumbing Company always remains modest, as so many of our clients become just like family!
We are so exceptionally grateful.
“We’ve had Forster Plumbing come out and do several jobs for us and both times they were prompt, reasonably priced and did a nice job. The first job was a sump pump emergency and the second job was a toilet replacement. My wife was very comfortable with them and we like their work. Why call anyone else?”
“I had these folks replace the corroded galvanized pipes in my house with copper, after they were recommended to me by friends. They were courteous and accommodating from the first phone call through the entire process.
They really seemed to care about getting things done right and were happy to answer any questions I had. Quality work and excellent customer service. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends. One billion stars, thanks guys!”
“I have this little rental house and I want to keep my great tenants happy. So over the past three or four years these plumbers have been out for nearly everything that can go wrong with plumbing….the tenants are always happy, I am happy, great business that does great work on time and at a rate that you know is well worth it. I first called them because they are local, but you should call them because they are great.”
