About Us

Rich’s Grandfather – Max Schoenwalder Sr. – started our plumbing business in 1912 in Newark, NJ. In the 1920’s Max served as Mayor of Union, NJ.

Rich’s Father – Paul Schoenwalder, Sr. – returned from service in WWII and joined Max’s business in 1945. After settling down, Paul had the privilege of fathering five sons and became an active member of the PHCC and the Rotary of Union County, NJ.

Richard Schoenwalder, the second eldest of Paul’s five children, graduated high school in 1967 and joined the Seabees, helping to build critical infrastructure in support of our armed forces deployed abroad. His service concluded honorably in 1970, and afterwards he married his high school sweet heart, Adrienne. Richard joined the family business which was now located in Union, NJ.
