Our History

In 1968 with five hundred dollars in his pocket and the desire to start his own business, Wayne James established a small company and called it “James Plumbing”. Armed with only a few tools in his truck and the experience as a plumbers’ helper he set out to make a successful business and thereby be his own boss with the help of his wife.

1968 - Humble Beginnings
"Serving The Grand Strand"

Both he and Linda grew up on farms where a strong work ethic was a way of life; hence they possessed a special innovative spirit and uncommon passion for honesty and doing a job correctly. They wanted to develop a successful business serving “The Grand Strand” and did so. James Plumbing continues to be a growing and striving business today and can proudly report that we are currently in our 56th year of continual operation. Serving The Grand Strand SC Since 1968

In 2007, Mr. and Mrs. James retired and sold the family owned company to their daughter, Tawanna and her husband James. Tawanna grew up working in the business and helping her mother in the office. While Tawanna’s husband James, on the other hand, had just retired from the military after serving in the Army as an Apache Helicopter Pilot for over 20 years. Mr James riding on an army helicopter
