Time flies when you are providing excellent service! This year, Bill Fenwick Plumbing celebrates fifty years at our family-owned business! That is five decades of dedication, family, and pride in a job well done.
A lot can change in fifty years. New technologies rise, trends and fashions fall, entire cultures shift to new ways and traditions. What will never change, however, is our commitment to offering Jacksonville an honest, trustworthy, family-owned choice to count on when they encounter plumbing needs.
The Start of Something Great
In 1969, Bill Fenwick Sr. had a growing family and a dream. He established Bill Fenwick Plumbing Inc. and worked out of his home, answering phones with his wife, Beverly. While it was never easy growing a business while bringing up three sons, Bill Fenwick Sr. proved he and his sons had what it took.
The family owned business grew enough to necessitate a move from the home to a warehouse shop in 1970. Over the next seven years, the business truly hit its stride. The next move in 1977 would take it to the offices on Beach Boulevard, where it would remain for 36 years. It didn’t move again until 2013, when it landed on Columbia Park Drive.
The Family Who Plumbs Together, Stays Together
Family has always been one of the pillars that supports Bill Fenwick Plumbing as it grows. The company began in a family home, with three boys to learn the trade as their mother and father laid the foundations for the business. Those family ties have continued through all fifty years of service to the community.
31 years after Bill Fenwick Sr. started taking calls in his home and began his journey as a business owner, he sold the company to his son Bill Fenwick Jr. His brother, George, opted to take on the remodeling division. To do so, he worked to become a certified master in tile setting. His brother, Michael, is a state certified plumbing contractor himself, rounding out a formidable family team with the ability to complete any job right!
A Family Owned Business Legacy
Fifty years have flown by in a blur of pipes, drains, and happy customers! The Bill Fenwick family is looking forward to another fifty years of showing what the power of family can do. In the future, you will find the Fenwick family carrying on the legacy of pride, trustworthy work, and incomparable customer service. We hope you will join the family of customers we welcome into our next fifty years!
