Serving the Piedmont Triad for more than 80 years
Bodenheimer Plumbing Service, Inc., traces its roots to the Ernest Bodenheimer pump shop in the 1930's. Ernest was not only a pump retailer and installer but an inventor. He developed the "Bodenhamer Pump", yes that's with an "a" because a mistake was made in the casting. During the Depression, the $25.00 to recast the mold was better spent on his family of 9 than to correct a spelling mistake.
Through the years Bodenheimer Pump expanded its services to include plumbing and steam heat. During this time Ernest's son Bud joined the business, after spending 4 years in the Air Force. They worked together until Ernest's death in 1969, at which time Bud went to work for the Bahnson Company. While with the Bahnson Company, Bud managed the installation of multi-million dollar mechanical and plumbing systems in the Textile, Pharmaceutical and Power Generation industries. But Bud's heart was at the plumbing shop.
In 1977, Bud restarted Bodenheimer Plumbing concentrating on service and repair. As his three sons (Philip, Ed and David) completed their educations, they joined him in the business. Since then the business has grown to include new plumbing installations, remodeling, hydronic heating, utility construction and service/repair.
