Carson Plumbing was started by Chuck Carson in 1982. Now an established Athens, Ga plumbing business, it was originally run out of his house with his lovely wife Penny doing much of the "office" work on the kitchen table. Things quickly took off for Chuck and he quickly went from hiring assistants to purchasing more trucks and equipment as needed. Finally the company outgrew the house and Mr. Carson purchased the land that the business now sits on at 259 Wynburn Ave in Athens.
In 1989 a lightning fire destroyed the old wooden structure and a new building was erected. The company has been operating out of this new home ever since. In February, 2008, Chuck Carson sold his well established business to two of his sons, Josh and Pete Carson. These new stewards of the business have striven to maintain the same honest and courteous business relationship with their customers and the community as they were taught by their father growing up. Carson Plumbing is managed by Mike McCain who has been with the company since 1986.
