As the Haddonfield/Cherry Hill area of South Jersey changed from a rural community to a more populated suburban area, Hutchinson grew to meet the needs of their growing number of neighbors. 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.
In the 70s, the third generation of Hutchinson’s 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 a local and national level. By 1998, sales grew to $29 million dollars a year.
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 about all aspects of the business, while helping each of them find their own place in the company based on individual interests and talents. In the mid 80′s they assumed leadership roles in the business.
Today, Hutchinson is one of the most experience plumbing, heating, and air conditioning contractors in the region. Currently, Fred is CEO of Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling and heads the residential division, Ed is president and manages the commercial division, Bill Jr. is senior project manager, Bob is the manager of IT and Tom is president of Barth Plumbing Heating Cooling, which now trades under the Hutchinson name.
