About The Company

We have been serving the Triangle area through four generations of the Tilley family. Acme Plumbing Co. was started by W. Laurence Tilley, Sr., under the name of S & T Plumbing. In 1952, W. L. “Dub” Tilley, Jr. and his wife, Shirley, joined the company full time and the name was changed to Tilley’s Acme Plumbing & Heating Company and then, simply, Acme Plumbing & Heating Company. In 1957 the business was incorporated.

The business originally worked out of the Tilley residence, first on North Duke Street and then in 1952 to the family garage on what is now Olympic Drive. In 1964, the company merged with Paschall Brothers Plumbing which resulted in a 20-year lease at 326 West Geer Street (now Common Ground). In addition to its offices and popular parts counter, Acme included a bath accessory shop, “The Bath Boutique.” In 1983, Acme purchased property around the corner and moved to its current location at 636 Foster Street.

Fourth generation Laurence T. Tilley joined the service team in 2013 and is leading the company’s efforts to re-invent itself as good old Acme Plumbing Co.. Laurence Tilley, Eddie Paul, Efrem Whitehurst, John Armour and Michael Villines—assisted by Lee Ann Tilley and Emily Brincefield—will soon be taking care of Acme’s loyal Durham customer base with newly-branded trucks and uniforms.

With deep roots in the community, we strive to provide the best in plumbing service and commercial new construction plumbing design and build services. We are looking for new team members to join Acme Plumbing, Inc., a trusted name in plumbing services.
