Thomas J. Higgins, Founder
December 11, 1934 - March 22, 2006
Our company was founded in 1973 by Thomas J. Higgins, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Mr. Higgins started a family with his wife Ann and and moved to Connecticut. There, he worked sales for a New England manufacturer's rep agency and soon established himself as a top performer.
In 1973 an opportunity arose in Chicago, IL, to fulfill a lifelong dream of starting his own company.
The company today is operated by his sons Thomas and Brian, who have both been with the company since 1980.
The newest generation includes Tom IV, Conor & Frank Higgins who are following in their fathers' footsteps.
We are dedicated to continuing the traditional work ethics of Tom Sr. and to steer the company to higher levels of professionalism in marketing, sales and service.
Located in the northern Chicagoland area, we are an independent manufacturer's representative agency serving the plumbing & heating industries. Our territories include Illinois & NW Indiana.
