Our History


How We Began

C.G.W. Plumbing and Heating has been in business since 2009 when local owners Victor Commandeur and Ralph Goodwin-Wilson joined together. After working in the industry for another local plumbing outfit, Victor ventured out on his own and started a successful business called Commandeur Plumbing and Heating.

His area of expertise is residential service for both plumbing and heating systems, but has extensive experience with Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional new construction. After owning and operating his own business for 14 years, Victor decided it was time for a change and C.G.W. was born.
