About Fitzgerald & Sons
FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company was founded in 1984 by Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.) with the intention of building a full service plumbing contracting company servicing all market sectors in the North Georgia area.
Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.) had worked as the general superintendent for James McCullagh Company, Inc. for over thirty years. James McCullagh Company, Inc. was one of the largest plumbing and mechanical contracting companies in the NY metro area. As general superintendent Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.) ran the field operations labor force on projects ranging from Nassau Coliseum, Cedar Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant, and Stony Brook University Hospital and Health Science Center.
Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.) was soon joined by his two sons, Richard P. FitzGerald Jr. and Michael S. FitzGerald in 1985 and 1986 respectively. In the first few years in business, FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company aggressively pursued gaining market share for the Service Division. The Construction Division started slowly performing plumbing work on government postal facilities, industrial plant expansions, and medium sized commercial work. Over the next five years 1985 – 1990, FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company steadily grew in terms of its available employee base, management capacity, and ability to handle larger projects.
In 1990, a decision was made to aggressively pursue work in the Healthcare Sector. FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company was awarded the plumbing contract for the Women’s Center Renovation at Southern Regional Medical Center, because of the extensive healthcare experience of Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.); and we are still working at this facility today.
In early 1993, Richard P. FitzGerald (Sr.) passed away leaving control of FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company to his two sons Richard P. FitzGerald Jr. and Michael S. FitzGerald.
FitzGerald & Sons Plumbing Company experienced substantial growth throughout the 1990’s and into the 2000’s securing additional work and experiencing continued broad based growth with projects in the residential, commercial, religious, educational, industrial, healthcare, and religious market sectors.
