About Our Business
J ED Mechanical Contractors Inc d/b/a JED Plumbing & Gas was founded in 1949 by Walter “Duke” Duquette. The company was named after his daughter, Judith Elizabeth Duquette (“JED”). In 1984, Robert “Bob” DiPalma began working at JED as a plumbing and project manager. When Bob started, the company was primarily focused on new construction plumbing only. Duke and Bob instantly had a great working relationship, which only grew as time went on. One day, Duke approached Bob and announced his plans to retire. He also asked if Bob would like to take over the company. Bob, of course, said yes and started to restructure the company into plumbing service, repairs, gas line service and sewer/water line work for municipalities, commercial accounts and homeowners. Bob went into semi-retirement in 2016, but continues to contribute to the long-term success of JED.
Today, JED is a full-service residential and commercial water line, gas, and plumbing company specializing in environmentally friendly sewer repairs, cleaning, and restoration. By utilizing environmentally friendly sewer repair techniques such as Trenchless Repair Technology and Cured In Place Piping, JED Mechanical is able to perform full inspections, repairs, and restorations with minimal damage to the landscape or environment. With over 60 years of experience, JED Mechanical has a proven record of providing exceptional customer service and care to all clients on every project.

JED is ready to satisfy any contracts offered by government associations or private companies, as well the everyday needs of our neighborhood homeowners.
