Paul Petcosky – 1st Generation
The patriarch of the Petcosky family, Paul started working for the State of New York as a steamfitter in 1957. Always the entrepreneur, the elder Petcosky eventually began a small plumbing business on the side to help support his family. One thing led to another and through superior customer service and word of mouth, Paul’s business began to grow. At the early age of 12, youngest son Mike began to give his father a hand in the family business and the seeds for what eventually would become Petcosky & Sons were planted.
Tom Petcosky – 2nd Generation
While Mike was instrumental in growing the family business and maintains the level of customer service and craftsmanship in the field, his brother Tom was key in building a productive and efficient office environment.
Graduating from the University of Cincinnati in 1983 with a degree in public administration, Tom quickly joined his brother in the family business, building a strong internal structure that still exists today. If you needed help filing your rebate or financing paperwork, or had question about service, Tom was your man! He ran the office and service department for 26 years prior to his retirement in 2013.
Mike Petcosky – 2nd Generation
Mike has been in the plumbing, heating and air conditioning business his entire life. He began his career at the early age of 12, helping his father with the day-to-day operations of the family business. In 1979, Mike attended SUNY Delhi for plumbing and heating. In 1981, after college, Mike decided to take the family business to next level. Answering the needs of their growing customer base, Mike expanded the business to include heating and cooling in addition to the many master plumber licenses and accreditations on the family’s business resume. In 1987, Mike’s dream was finally realized and Petcosky & Sons was officially incorporated. Mike continues to be involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. He has also found time to serve the local community as a volunteer firefighter and assistant fire chief for close to 35 years.
Justin Petcosky – 3rd Generation
Justin is third generation and torchbearer in the Petcosky & Sons legacy. Much like his father Mike, Justin grew up around the family business, officially starting work for the company in 2007. In 2009, Justin attended State University at New York/Broome and specialized in fire prevention technology. The family, always looking to the future, utilized Justin’s knowledge to open the Fire Protection Division in 2009. Today the FPD of Petcosky & Sons services many commercial clients in the Triple Cities community. He also continues the tradition of community commitment, having served as a volunteer firefighter for the past seven years and as an emergency medical technician for the last five.
