After returning from serving in World War II, Richard Dilling, Sr., was eager to start his own business. In 1947, he established a plumbing business that served residential customers in Logansport Indiana and surrounding communities. He steadily gained valuable experience and established a solid reputation of providing quality work at fair and competitive prices. A man who embraced hard work to accomplish his professional and personal goals, Richard Sr. lived the American dream by not only building a successful business, but raising his children to adopt the timeless values of hard work, fairness, and consideration for others.
Richard Dilling Jr. grew up helping his father and learned many basic skills at an early age. After returning from an overseas tour with the United States Marine Corps in 1968, he joined the family business and immediately expanded the operations to target commercial, institutional and industrial work and clients. Since that time, more than 40 years ago, Richard and his team have steadily grown the business by establishing a family of companies that have specific missions in order to deliver industrial solutions with exceptional value.
Today, the Dilling Group of companies operates throughout the mid-west, south, southeast, and other select markets where core competencies of the companies provide strategic advantages.
