AMPAM Parks Mechanical started in 1978 with just a father, a son and a pickup truck heading to their first plumbing construction job. Since then, the company has grown to over 1000 employees with jobs all over California. Annual revenues consistently exceed $150 million. It’s hard for some of the Parks family to believe, but seemingly in the blink of an eye, the company has seen success across four decades and is currently celebrating its 40th year anniversary. Since it was founded, AMPAM Parks Mechanical has completed over $1 billion of work to date. That young son who started the company with his father, Charles ‘Buddy’ Parks, is now the CEO and is currently running the company alongside his three brothers.
Today, AMPAM is involved in every facet of the plumbing construction business, from design to finish. It boasts a large design and engineering department, pre-fab yards, and its own logistics fleet. There is a concentration of skill-building and training developed and taught by the company’s many plumbing experts and a full-time instructor. Safety is a priority – so much so, that it has its own department and full time staff. AMPAM is now the largest multifamily plumbing contractor in California and is ranked in the top 10 among plumbing contractors in the US by Contractor Magazine.
Through good economic times and bad, AMPAM has continued to prosper and grow the business while advancing state of the art design and functionality within the ever-changing world of plumbing & mechanical contracting.
The company is dedicated to providing its valued customers the highest level of technology and innovation while remaining eco-conscious and offering sustainable solutions for the future.
