Celebrating 75 Years

Marking a milestone in 2020

This year is an exciting year here at Brubaker Inc. as we are celebrating 75 years serving the Lancaster Community!  Join us as we celebrate marking a milestone in 2020!

Our Beginnings

Brubaker Inc. was started in 1945 by I. Wayne Brubaker, serving the area with plumbing, heating, and rainwater spouting installation.  Back in the day Wayne and his wife Evelyn did everything that any small business entrepreneur would do.  Wayne figured the cost, bought materials, sold, and did the jobs.  Evie fielded phone calls, did the bookkeeping, billing, and associated paperwork—all while raising a young family.

Brubaker Inc. marks a milestone in 2020 - circa 1953From those early, humble beginnings, Brubaker Inc. has grown into one of the largest and most diversified service providers in Lancaster County and South Central Pennsylvania.  We now have seven different core businesses.  We provide services in plumbing, heating and air conditioning, electrical; along with plumbing and HVAC construction.  In our Showroom and Design Center, we have kitchen and laundry appliance sales and service.  You will also find our kitchen, bath, and laundry remodeling division.

What started out as tiny business in the basement of a small barn soon expanded when Wayne brought on his first employee.  In addition, he expanded and became a partnership when brother Albert joined the business in the 1950’s.

Service and Independence

The spirit of entrepreneurship and servanthood have always run deep at Brubaker Inc. Throughout the decades Brubaker Inc. has given many business owners their start in our industry prior to their starting their own concerns.  Many familiar names in the plumbing, water treatment, HVAC, and electrical trades got their start working for us.

While dreaming to be his own boss, Wayne also planted a seed.  That seed has grown and has firm roots in the Lancaster community and beyond.  Now midway through our 8th decade in business, we look forward to continuing serving the community through the remaining 8 decades of this century.

Setting a Standard

There are three key components to our continued success at Brubaker Inc.  That success results in our having tremendously satisfied and loyal customers.  We acquire them by:

  • hiring and training the best employees while providing an environment for them to maximize their success
  • procuring the best products and services from our suppliers, vendors, and consultants
  • promoting trusting, positive relationships between our employees, and with our customers and vendors

Learn more about our Home Services, our Appliance Center, and our Remodeling Services.

As a result, we have enjoyed remarkable success over the years by focusing on these three areas.
