Fox Plumbing & Heating was started by Homer and Jeannette Fox on August 1, 1966. Operations were conducted out of their home until late September 1973, when the business expanded and needed a larger facility. They purchased the property of former employer Pace Plumbing & Heating on Boston Street. By September 1976, an adjoining property was purchased to build an additional structure for storing equipment and subsequent sheet metal shop. By this time, the four Fox sons had joined the business. In late November 1984, the present location was purchased. From a one-man operation in 1966, a business grew.
