 Our History

The company was started by Carl N. Finley in New Orleans in 1934.  In 1935, he moved the company to its present location at 308 Adams Street.  Over the years, the company has been the training ground for many companies now providing plumbing services to our community.  Carl turned the management of the company over to his son, Jim, in 1968, but stayed on as an adviser until his death in 1977.   


After completing an Engineering Degree at Louisiana Tech and seven years in the Air Force, Jim took over the management of the company.  He has continued the leadership role that Carl established, serving on the Louisiana State Plumbing Board and its Advisory Board since 1970, including six years as Vice Chairman and twenty-four years as Chairman.   He serves as the PHCC representative on the International Plumbing Code Committee and the Professional Engineering representative on the American Society of Sanitary Engineers Seal Committee, which he also chairs. 


In 1960, Carl was elected the President of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association   In 2007,  Jim followed in his footsteps serving as the PHCC National President.   Through Carl’s leadership and later, Jim’s, the company has been a driving force for professionalism in the industry, delivering the message of the plumbing industry’s responsibility for protecting the health of our nation through safe and sanitary plumbing systems.
