- Plumbing Contractor
Providing Commercial and Residential Plumbing Solutions and Appliance Repair to the Quad Cities Area for Over 60 Years
In the 1930’s, Howard Petersen was a plumber’s apprentice, moonlighting as a race car driver. This was back in the days of open cock pits in racing and lead pipe in plumbing. After serving in World War II as a pipe fitter, Howard came home to work for a series of small plumbing shops.
In 1947, Howard and his Brother George made a decision to strike out on their own. They bought out Bill Mack and opened a small shop on West 3rd Street in Davenport. It was 1947 and the company vehicle was a very used 1934 Dodge panel truck.
Petersen now owns 50 separate company vehicles, not including seven back hoes and other pieces of equipment. Today, that tiny two-man operation can have nearly 100 persons on the payroll at different times of the year depending on the projects involved.
