Commercial Service

As our company grew, and often due to requests from our existing homeowner customers who also operate various businesses, F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. found a demand for our services in a mix of commercial areas. This includes Retail, Hospitality, Entertainment, Hotels and private and publicly owned office buildings and warehouses.


From small-business entrepreneurs to “big-box” retailers, our commitment to provide timely and correct Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, Fire Sprinkler Systems, and Refrigeration never stops. We understand the distinctly different needs of each owner and respond accordingly. This includes department stores, specialty stores, hardware stores, groceries, auto dealerships, bakeries, and anywhere else the general public visits to purchase merchandise, items, or services.


Hospitality, Entertainment, Hotels

Starting with the tiny neighborhood taverns and cafes, restaurants, movie theaters, and hotels from our earliest days in business, we’ve installed and eventually serviced Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, Fire Sprinkler, and Refrigeration building systems necessary for such establishments to function with minimal disruption to their base operations. As we grew along with Springfield and the rest of Illinois, so too did our customer base. Never neglecting or losing gratitude for our early accounts, we have gone on to work for some of the largest and well-known chains.



Office Buildings

Over the years, Springfield has transitionally evolved into a service-oriented community creating a need for significant office spaces. From our involvement in the initial construction of most of these buildings including Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, and Fire Sprinklers, we have continued to maintain and repair these facilities as time goes on and system usage increases.

As the center of State and County government, as well as city government, there has always been a need to house their respective operations in Springfield. F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has participated in the original construction of many of these kinds of facilities not only in Springfield, but also throughout Illinois and we continue to perform scheduled maintenance and repair work involving the Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Fire Sprinkler systems for many of these properties.


Most warehouses typically contain and store valuable contents critical to the business operations of their owners. From foodstuffs, to refrigerated products, to dry goods, to chemicals, to paper goods, to manufactured and fabricated products, each has their individual storage requirements. Plumbing, Heating, and Refrigeration are often necessary for at least parts of the warehouse to function... and Fire Sprinklers are almost always necessary to protect such stored items. F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has been awarded this kind of work for all sectors of the commercial, governmental, and manufacturing markets, both in the greater Springfield area and throughout most of Illinois and neighboring states.
