Masselli and Sons Plumbing and Heating Company was founded in 1947 by John E, Masselli and was first established as Higganum Plumbing and Heating. Three years later the name was changed to Masselli and Sons Plumbing and Heating Company and has remained such to the present.
John's son, Joseph, worked for the company as a teenager and became a full-time employee after graduation in 1954. He has worked for the company since 1954 except for a two year military leave. Upon his father's retirement in 1976, Joseph took ownership of the business and Joseph's son, Michael, after completing courses at Hartford State Technical College, joined the firm full time in 1988.
Upon Joseph's retirement in 2002 Michael became third generation Masselli to own and operate the business.
It has always been the philosophy of the Masselli's that their business was more than making a living. It was a means of serving their community and they have worked diligently to establish a good reputation and to be worthy of the people they serve.
