About Us

In 1956, Suburban Pump & Well was founded to serve Chicago’s southwestern suburbs.  In April of 1967, a devastating tornado damaged much of Oak Lawn and the surrounding area.  In order to help rebuild many of the homes and businesses, services beyond pump equipment installation were required so the Adamson family expanded into commercial contracting by forming Suburban Plumbing. 

Seventeen years later, in 1984, Tom Adamson, Jr. moved the company to Chicago and incorporated it as Thomas P. Adamson, Jr. & Associates, which it remained until April 1, 2014. Now, Adamson Plumbing Contractors, owned by Doug Withington & Chris Eisenhauer, has a dedicated team of sixty professionals in both the field and office.  All team members have extensive experience and skills in construction or a related field.  Adamson Plumbing has the bonding capability to handle large projects and whether bonded or not, Adamson has never failed to complete a contract. We utilize new technology and stay current with the latest construction means and methods to maximize both efficiency and effectiveness on every project.
