1971- First Ben Washington & Sons Service Truck

BWS was founded by a historical pioneer who was steeped into the cultural and historical roots of Detroit  in the 1950s.

Founder Benjamin T. Washington was born in Burdette, Arkansas, June 15, 1924 and attended the public schools of his native home, graduating from Burdette Junior High prior to coming to Detroit, where he established residency 1941. Benjamin T. Washington went to work for Ford Motor Company in 1946. In 1957 he decided he wanted to become a plumber and went into residential work for Frank Griffin a Master Plumber. During the same year he went into the sewer cleaning business. He became a Journeyman Plumber in 1964, and enlarged his business to include excavating.

In March of 1966, Mr. Washington became a Master Plumber which increased his firm’s activities to include plumbing. When he received his heating license in 1970, Ben Washington & Sons expanded into: Sewer Cleaning, Excavating, Plumbing, Sheet Metal Work and Heating. In April of 1971 Ben Washington & Sons was incorporated and became Ben Washington & Sons Plumbing & Heating, Inc (BWS, Inc.). As a result of his progressive enterprise, BWS, Inc. had been responsible for training 45 apprentices by this time.

BWS continues to charge ahead and continues it’s legacy created many years ago.

Since its incorporation BWS, Inc. has maintained its progressive culture and has developed into servicing Commercial and Industrial organizations. Isaac J. Washington the president of BWS, Inc. received his Bachelors in Business Administration from Eastern Michigan University in 1976, his Mechanical Contractor License in the late 1980’s and was issued his Master Plumber License by the State Plumbing Board in 2001 after passing his examination; thus following in the footsteps of his beloved father, the late Reverend Benjamin T. Washington.
