History

HistoryHistory of Superior Plumbing
From its inception in 1988 when one blue van logoed with the “the bathtub man” rolled out each morning from the garage of Jay Cunningham, Superior Plumbing Services, Inc. has gradually grown to a stable company.

Shortly after the bathtub man came the plumbers with red shirts and blue ties. Times have continued to change, and today Superior Plumbing employs a Customer Service/Dispatch staff, an Accounting Department, Mechanic, and Warehouse staff. The company’s mission is to deliver value to each customer. For Superior, value means rendering high quality service, with integrity, in a professional manner, at a fair price.
