Headed by Master Plumbers, William Schinestuhl and Tom Swick, Chapman Brothers continues a long tradition of plumbing, heating, and cooling service in the Union, Essex, and Middlesex county area. Originally founded in 1932, Chapman Brothers is one the longest running plumbing and heating companies in New Jersey. With a highly trained staff representing more than 150 years experience, Chapman Brothers has over 5000 customers in the area that can attest to the technical abilities and customer service skills of its trained technicians and staff.
Bill Schinestuhl, a New Jersey Master Plumber and State Certified Inspector, has had a foothold in the plumbing industry for over 35 years. Beginning as an apprentice, at the age of 17, Bill developed his own company from the back of his truck expanding his work throughout the Union County area. Through dependable workmanship and quality customer service, Bill continually built upon this framework of his business becoming a leading independent plumber in the Central Jersey region. Although he was able to train and develop some great employees during this time, Bill understood that the only way he could really provide more in-depth and expansive services was to reach out and develop quality partnership between Schinestuhl Plumbing and Heating and another local plumbing leader, Tom Swick Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. With over 65 years of combined experience, the two companies merged and gained operating control of Chapman Brothers, a plumbing and heating company established in 1932. Although the company has grown since he was 17, Bill's core beliefs in personal and quality service is something that remains at the foundation of every job done by Chapman Brothers.
Tom Swick, a New Jersey Master Plumber, began his plumbing and heating career in the home heating industry as a heating technician at the age of 17. After ten years of valuable experience at a large heating service company, Tom decided to branch out on his own, creating Tom Swick Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. Gaining a reputation for dependable work and engaging customer service, Tom slowly built upon his business expanding both in area and services in Central Jersey region. The company's growth and prosperity was gaining the attention of not only an expanding customer base but also other companies, including Schinestuhl Plumbing & Heating. With a formalized background in heating, Tom saw that to really expand his business and offer a more comprehensive service lineup, he would have to enlist the help of other experienced professionals in his industry. It was at this time that Tom and Bill began to realize that they could best capitalize on their individual strengths in the plumbing and heating professions by working together to deliver the most comprehensive service offerings in the Central Jersey area. This has only been positively compounded through the acquisition of Chapman Brothers, providing the company with the additional resources to grow their customer base while still delivering the individualized service that started over 30 years ago from the back of Tom's heating truck.
