Company Background & Family History

Background greenwood plumber

We are proud to be a family-owned business with well over 70 years of continuous service, and we appreciate the opportunity to serve the members of our community. We began as a minor plumbing and heating company, but today, we offer many excellent services and state-of-the-art products that can help you increase your home's comfort and energy efficiency.

Our company was founded on a commitment to customer satisfaction, which remains our chief priority today.

Our History

Our late Father and Grandfather Ralph H. Mathis founded Mathis Plumbing & Heating Co., Inc. in 1952. Ralph and his wife, Betsy, started the business from their garage with one truck, great ambition, and a commitment to customer service that has only grown since. While providing heating and plumbing services and handling all the behind-the-scenes administrative work, our founding "Father and Mother" managed to raise three children.

Mathis Teams Up with Benjamin's Heating & Cooling

In 2005, Mathis acquired Benjamin's Heating and Cooling, another strong family-owned business that opened its doors in 1946. With the addition of Benjamin's, we're better equipped to handle all your Upstate South Carolina heating and cooling needs than ever.

Without You, There is No Mathis

Today, the sons Jimmy and Wayne run the show. The Mathis brothers have worked full-time in all aspects of the business since Jimmy graduated from Lander College in 1972 and Wayne from The Citadel in 1975. Ralph and Betsy's grandsons, Russell and Tyler, are now the third generation, helping to lead and handle many of the day-to-day responsibilities.

Mathis Plumbing & Heating Co., Inc. continues to grow and evolve so that we can meet a changing and growing set of needs in our community. We can design, install, repair, and service plumbing and HVAC systems for residential, commercial, and industrial or institutional properties.
