Founded in 1946 by Foster McCarl Jr., whom honorably served our country and created a small residential plumbing, heating and air conditioning company as a way to support his young family. His mission was always doing “what was right for the customer”, and he quickly led his company, McCarl’s Plumbing and Heating Co., from a one man operation to a period of tremendous growth.
Foster was dedicated to see his business succeed. He worked tirelessly in all aspects of the business to ensure the success of his newly founded company. His wife, Muriel, would help during the slow times by selling model trains in the window of the shop to help “keep the lights on”.
To ensure the continued involvement of family for the distant future, Foster transitioned the business into the hands of his 4 sons.
Kevin, our current president, was chosen by Foster to oversee the company’s Service operations.
McCarl’s name is known coast to coast, as the company grew to one of the 20 largest mechanical contractors in the country, with 100s of employees, and a reputation for delivering some of the most technically complex projects.
To honor Foster McCarl’s lifetime of service, the Mechanical Contractors of American Foundation created the Foster McCarl Jr. Philanthropy Award to recognize the exceptional efforts of an individual, company or local association to raise funds in support of its mission.
Foster believed in always giving back to the community in which he made a living, and his belief carries on even after his passing in 2007 through his own charitable Foundation.
Today, McCarl’s serves many of the Tri-State areas largest companies for all of their HVACR needs. We focus on proactive maintenance, equipment replacement, energy projects, and turkey design-build. Year after year we lead our industry with our technical capabilities and a focus on serving our customers.
