About Us, McQuillan Bros Plumbing Heating and ACMcQuillan Bros Plumbing Heating and AC is one of the most reputable plumbing, heating and air conditioning companies in Minnesota. As a family owned and operated business, we have deep roots in the community.

In 1881, Shea and McQuillan started a plumbing business in St Paul, Minnesota. Two years later, in 1883 Shea left to pursue other interests and J.F. McQuillan and John L McQuillan formed McQuillan Brothers Plumbing Company.

John L McQuillan continued on with the business and had ten sons, seven of which joined the family business. They changed the name to McQuillan Brothers Plumbing & Heating and continued to serve the local area. Art McQuillan, the oldest son and known as the Mayor of Selby Avenue, took over the business from his father. Art and Jim McQuillan were hired by the City of Duluth to design the central steam plant and lay out the distribution piping. This system was installed by a local Duluth contractor. At about that same time, Earl McQuillan was hired to go out to Yellow Stone National Park and install the gas distribution system. During the prohibition Al Capone hired the McQuillans to come down to Chicago to install steam boilers for one of his new distilleries.

The business moved from downtown St. Paul to Ramsey Hill following the expansion pattern of the city. After Art’s death John E McQuillan took over and later his brother Jim, a Korean War veteran, joined the business. Currently John McQuillan, the fourth generation of McQuillan plumbers, and his sons Matt and John H McQuillan are following in the family tradition..
