McCarl’s Inc. was founded in 1946 by Foster McCarl Jr. who established the company with a personal commitment to customer satisfaction and a $4,000 G.I. loan. Known then as McCarl’s Plumbing & Heating, the company sold furnaces and cast iron sinks and offered residential plumbing and heating services. Foster McCarl’s reputation for dependability soon catapulted the firm into significant industrial and commercial contracts.
McCarl’s Inc. remained a family-owned entity until it’s acquisition in 1999 by PPL Corporation, a multi-billion dollar energy company based in Allentown, PA. Through PPL’s backing and support McCarl’s continued to prosper in the industrial construction industry.
In June 2015, McCarl’s became part of Talen Energy, an electric generation company newly formed from the generation assets of PPL Corporation and Riverstone Holdings. We are confident this transition will prove to be an enhancement to the excellent services that McCarl’s continues to offer.
