Our History and Business
A proud small family business for over five decades, Jim’s Plumbing was founded by Jim Ujazdowski on August 14, 1967. After several years of training in Three Lakes, Wisconsin, Jim moved to Appleton, Wisconsin and gained his Master’s Plumber’s license so he could pursue his dream of owning and operating a plumbing company of his own.
Jim worked alone for the first two years, but as business increased, he saw the need to expand his operation and took the opportunity to grow! As our workload and community profile increased, Jim added licensed local plumbers and indentured apprentices to the Jim’s Plumbing team.
Jim’s oldest son, Jeff, started working in the family business during and immediately after high school. The work shortage of the early 1980’s prompted him to voluntarily pursue another avenue of employment that provided him solid business and interpersonal skills that would later serve him in leadership roles within the company.
By 1984, the economy was back on the rebound and Jeff returned to the family business, working in the field, through his apprenticeship and as a journeyman until he was eligible to write his Master Plumber’s exam, eventually moving into the office.
Jeff acquired the business from his father on April 14th, 2001, and still today, he proudly serves as President and Master Plumber with the company.
A few years later Jim’s Plumbing went with a new image and logo but we’ve never lost sight of the fact that this community has depended on us since 1967. We continue to keep your trust by employing the best local plumbers with the highest levels of training in the industry. No matter the nature of your plumbing needs, from water heater repair/replacement to new construction and kitchen & bathroom remodeling, our team is up to the task!
