Carrier Corp. proudly presents the 2012 President’s Award to Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling. This is their fourth year winning this prestigious award. Through their professionalism and high level of customer service, Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling truly exemplifies the qualities of an outstanding contractor.
George H. Hutchinson, Sr., and sons William A. Hutchinson, Sr. and George H. Hutchinson, Jr. founded the Hutchinson family business in 1948. George and his sons started Hutchinson Engineering with their accumulated wealth - $35 in a cigar box - in rural Haddonfield, New Jersey. In this post WWII era, the Hutchinson’s would do anything, from their desired trade of plumbing to changing storm windows, just to make a go of it. And they succeeded, changing their name to Hutchinson Plumbing in 1954. By the mid-1960s, they were Haddonfield’s largest and most successful plumbing contractor.
When founder George Sr. passed away in 1966, his sons and co-founders Bill Sr. and George Jr. retained their co-ownership and leadership roles, continuing to build the business.
In the 1970s, the third generation of Hutchinson joined the business and continued to grow the company, adding air conditioning, large mechanical construction and general construction to its business lines. Hutchinson also entered into the government contracting business on both the local and national levels.
The five sons of founder Bill Sr. - Bill, Ed, Fred, Tom and Bob - and George III, George Jr.’s son, worked side-by-side for over 30 years. They each gained valuable experience in the family business at a young age, working in various roles including dispatcher, technician apprentice, material handler and more. Learning the business from the ground up enabled them to become knowledgeable on all aspects of the business, while helping each of them to find their own place in the company based on individual interests and talents. In the mid 1980’s they assumed leadership roles in the business.
Hutchinson maintains a supportive atmosphere that enables employees to succeed in their careers and lives. Training employees in industry and life skills is an ongoing commitment as is helping and lending support to employees in need.
The business was built on and maintains a strong philosophy that service matters. A simple, straight-shooting approach has served Hutchinson - and its customers - well.
These business practices have allowed Hutchinson to surpass its competitors at all levels. Evening dispatch, round-the-clock service and a state-of-the-art communication system help Hutchinson maintain its competitive edge.
Hutchinson works diligently to always do the right thing both as it relates to their customers and their employees. Its trained technicians have the experience and expertise to service the most complex heating/air conditioning and plumbing systems. Hutchinson’s mechanical background and engineering recommendations have resulted in innovative, practical solutions to serve each customer’s needs.
Today, Hutchinson is South Jersey’s largest HVAC company and has been voted for eight straight years “The Best" heating and cooling contractor in South Jersey in the Courier-Post Readers’ Choice Best of South Jersey.
With the third generation of Hutchinson’s at the helm of this thriving company and the fourth generation coming on board, Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling looks forward to continued growth and success by carrying on the tradition of excellence in service and commitment to family and community.
