Boulanger’s Plumbing & Heating was started
by Raymond Boulanger in 1946 in a small storefront on “Shop Row” in
Easthampton MA. Next door to the plumbing shop was a restaurant which
was owned by Raymond’s brother in law, Mickey. Boulanger’s
was officially incorporated in 1958 with 8 employees (mostly Boulanger
brothers). At that time the company performed mostly residential work
and service calls.
In 1958 Raymond Boulanger took on a partner by the
name of David C Teece. Together, they both expanded the business to
include commercial type installation services. Meanwhile, Mickey’s
Restaurant was employing a short order cook by the name of Paul J Duda
(our current owner). Both Raymond and David saw potential in Mr. Duda
and quickly hired him to dig plumbing ditches instead of flipping burgers.
In 1971 Boulanger’s relocated to a larger facility
on Main Street in Easthampton and has been there ever since.
In 1976 Raymond retired from Boulanger’s leaving
David and Paul to take over the business as partners. David Teece retired
in 1988 and Paul Duda took over complete ownership of the company.
Currently, Boulanger’s Plumbing and Heating
Inc. has over 40 employees and covers a wide arrange of plumbing, heating,
and air conditioning contracting. We are equipped to handle anything
from the smaller plumbing or HVAC service call to large commercial projects.
In 2006 we upgraded our Sheetmetal fabrication shop
and relocated to West Springfield to an automated facility. Our new
shop is geared toward the commercial type production that is needed
in today’s market.
Our base of operations continues to be on Main Street
in Easthampton where we service Western and central Massachusetts and
