Billharz Plumbing & Gas Heating

In 1927, Henri started Billharz Plumbing after he received his Master Plumbers Lic. # 9914. Henri X. Billharz became the founder and first president of the Sunnyside Kiwanis Club. Henri led the club and the division with unselfish dedication and deep concern for those less fortunate. He led with gentle conviction that each member and each project was of singular importance. This is not surprising as his entire business was built on and continues to give extraordinary service.

Henri was also president of the Queens County Grand Jurors Association, president of the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce, and a state officer in the New York State Master Plumbers Association. He was a member of the Astoria Lodge F & A. M and the Elks Club.

Although it may sound like a very full resume, Henri always said that a man’s wealth was his family. He and his wife Martha raised three children, and he was blessed with living to see and know all of his 10 grandchildren.

Robert H. Billharz is a licensed plumber (#437) and the owner of Billharz Plumbing, Inc. since 1978. He has continued his education to keep abreast and expand his proficiency in new technical advancements. He is known throughout the borough as an honest trustworthy expert in all phases of industrial, commercial, and residential plumbing and gas heating.

Bob is also a member of the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce, the Queens Chamber of Commerce, and the Masons. He was Master (president) of his Masonic Lodge in 1977 and again in 1985. Bob has also served as an officer in the Queens County Association of Master Plumbers.

Henri J. Billharz started working at Billharz Plumbing part-time while in high school and college. Once he graduated from Adelphi University, he joined full-time. Henri is a member of the Master Plumbers Association and has received his Master Plumbers Lic. # 1986.

Henri has brought new technology to us with his continuing education in the plumbing and business field. Henri is certified for PZ testing and installation. He is continually educating our men and himself in the newest aspects of the plumbing field without ever forgetting the fundamentals of plumbing. He is currently the leading force in bringing Billharz Plumbing to its 100-year anniversary.

Our family is involved in every aspect of this business. Our company and family look forward to providing you with exceptional service.
