The Pflumm name has a long history in the plumbing industry going all the way back to the 1940's when brothers Paul and Luke Pflumm started Pflumm Brothers plumbing. The Pflumm name goes hand and hand with the plumbing industry especially in the Merriam and Shawnee area. Pflumm Brothers plumbing continued through the years with Paul and his sons Fred and Jim.
In 1975 Fred opened his own plumbing company in a little house on Knox in Merriam, Kansas. The name of that company was FRED PFLUMM PLUMBING CO., INC. At that time Fred had two employees, himself and his son-in-law Mike Sharp. Between the two of them they plumbed around 40 houses per year. Fred's wife Norma and daughter Debbie handled the paper work. The company flourished and moved to a new location at 8325 Monticello Rd. in 1984. Over the years Fred's daughters Debbie, Jane, Lisa and Nancy were involved in the company. In the 80's his son-in-laws Jeff Robinson and Tim Zarda also became involved in the company. After the death of Fred in 1999 his daughter Lisa Pflumm Zarda and Tim Zarda purchased Fred Pflumm Plumbing making Lisa a third generation owner in the plumbing business. We have many longtime employees with Dale Sax being employed the longest going on 24 years with the company. Continuing the tradition, Tim and Lisa's children, Leslie, Leigh and T.J. also work for the company making them the fourth generation in the plumbing business. The company is now located in a new building at 8165 McCoy in Shawnee, Kansas.
Fred Pflumm Plumbing does plumbing work for many of the well known builders in the area including J.S. Robinson Fine Homes, Lambie-Geer Homes, Martens Family Enterprises and the Diamond building group to name a few.
