Celebrating more than 62 years as the go-to plumbing and HVAC experts in the Alleghany Highlands, Chapman Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. continues to be the beacon of reliable and efficient services for both commercial and residential clients. Established in 1961 as a family-owned and operated business, Chapman’s commitment to delivering quality service and products has solidified its position as a trusted partner for all plumbing, heating, and air conditioning needs.
A Journey Through Generations: A Family Business with a Rich History
Founded by Warren C. Chapman in 1961, the company traces its roots back to the acquisition of two companies, J.A Shumaker and W.C. Powell Plumbing and Heating, both dating back to the 1930s. After Warren’s passing in 1983, Ruby B. Chapman took the reins until her retirement in 1990, passing the torch to Connie M. King. The legacy continued with Connie’s daughter, Tiffany King-Sanders, joining the company in 1990. Tiffany, initially stepping in as a temporary measure, found her lifelong career path while supporting her mother during challenging times. The business persevered through triumphs and trials, with Tiffany’s late father, Dennis R. King joining the team after his retirement from West Rock in 2009, highlighting the family’s enduring commitment to Chapman’s legacy. Tiffany is married to Mike Sanders, nephew of Warren Chapman.
