Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Inc., is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year!

Bishop Plumbing was originally founded by C.L. Bishop in 1921 in Des Plaines. Mr. Bishop was a prominent member of the Des Plaines community and government for many years.

Dave Hanns eventually purchased the company from C.L. Bishop and moved Bishop Plumbing from it’s original location on Pearson Street to Busse Highway.

Robert Melko purchased Bishop Plumbing in 1976. Robert then moved the company from Busse Highway to its current location on Rand Road. As the company’s third owner, Robert catapulted the company into new territory with the addition of heating and cooling, underground construction and repairs as well as RPZ/Backflow prevention installation and testing. Robert became very involved within the Plumbing Industry, always an advocate of both the contractor and the plumber. Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Inc., also became known for their generosity within the surrounding communities and even developed their own dog rescue called “Plumbers for Puppies”. Amongst all of Robert’s outstanding accomplishments, the one that stands out most is his extraordinary ability to create a family atmosphere between all the employees at Bishop Plumbing.

After Robert’s untimely death, Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Inc., was purchased by Brian Wilk in 2019. Brian has worked for Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling since 1981. Brian wore many hats prior to becoming the new President of the Company from shop helper, underground construction crew member, apprentice, journeyman, supervisor and then Vice President. Kristina Curran is now the Vice President of the Company. Brian and Kristina have worked together for over 25 years in management positions within Bishop. They work together to carry on the traditions of Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling while also making consistent improvements to better serve their customers, community, and employees.

Bishop Plumbing would like to say thank you to our customers, and we are happy to help you with any of your Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling needs!
