Joe Behr started Joe Behr Plumbing and Heating, Inc in 1965 as a new construction and service company. His son Michael worked with him after school and during summers in his teen years.
Michael served our country in the United States Marine Corp and was honorably discharged after 4 years of service. (1971 to 1975). After his discharge, he helped his father build a successful company.
In 1983 Joe passed away and Michael was left to continue the business. The biggest change was to shift the company focus from new construction to become a residential service and installation only company.
Since that time Joe Behr Plumbing and Heating has become a well-known plumbing, heating, and cooling residential service company. Joe Behr installs high-quality Lennox heating and cooling products in existing homes.
In 1999 Michael with the help of his wife and sons opened another company, Behr Necessities Hearth Shoppe, LTD. They have an office/showroom on Lexington Avenue. Here they showcase high-quality fireplaces and wood stoves.
