We are the only place you need to call for all your residential and commercial plumbing needs.

Serving Winston-Salem, North Carolina and surrounding areas for more than 80 years, Bodenheimer Plumbing Services, Inc. traces its roots to the Ernest Bodenheimer pump shop in the 1930s. Ernest was not only a pump retailer and installer, but also an inventor. He developed the “Bodenhamer Pump”, yes that’s with an “a” because a mistake was made in the casting. During the Depression, the $25.00 to recast the mold was better spent on his family of 9 than to correct a spelling mistake.

About Bodenheimer Plumbing Services, Inc. in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Through the years, Bodenheimer Pump expanded its services to include plumbing and steam heat. During this time, Ernest’s son, Bud, joined the business, after spending 4 years in the Air Force. They worked together until Ernest’s death in 1969, at which time Bud went to work for the Bahnson Company. While with the Bahnson Company, Bud managed the installation of multi-million dollar mechanical and plumbing systems in the Textile, Pharmaceutical and Power Generation industries. But Bud’s heart was at the plumbing shop.

In 1977, Bud restarted Bodenheimer Plumbing, concentrating on service and repair. Since then, the business has grown to include commercial, residential, remodel and utility services, including new plumbing installations and service/repair. The company is now owned by his youngest son, David Bodenheimer.
