The F.J. Murphy Experience

Every team member at F.J. Murphy & Son, Inc. is crucial in delivering exceptional results and earning your satisfaction. They all bring diverse skills and personalities but prioritize addressing YOUR concerns. We meticulously select employees based on character, skills, and attitude, refusing shortcuts for the sake of quality. We begin with comprehensive pre-hire character background checks, extending our scrutiny to their families and associates. This ensures that those dispatched to your property are entirely trustworthy and professional. Our substance abuse testing program is applied both prior to an employee being hired and randomly to all currently employed workers as well.

Additionally, we maintain bonding for our business licenses and job commitments, as all companies should do. This ensures our commitment to you, not only in words but through our actions. Your peace of mind and the superior quality of our service are our top priorities.

At F.J. Murphy & Son, Inc., your peace of mind is important to us. We carry “Fidelity Bonding” for all our employees, providing extra protection when working in places of high value, like occupied homes, businesses, and medical facilities. This extra safeguard sets us apart from competitors who may use the term “bonded” without this comprehensive protection.

Moreover, we proudly hold the “MSCA STAR Qualification,” a true mark of excellence in mechanical system service and maintenance. This designation, established by the Mechanical Service Contractors of America, reflects our commitment to top-quality service and rigorous evaluation.

Understanding the value

UA Star Certified Service Technicians

Achieving MSCA STAR status necessitates a workforce comprising at least 75% UA STAR-certified service technicians. UA STAR is a rigorous certification program supported by the United Association of the Plumbing, Pipefitting, and Sprinkler Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada.

UA STAR technicians pass a demanding exam, demonstrating the expertise needed to service, repair, maintain, or retrofit mechanical systems. To earn this certification, technicians complete a 5-year apprentice training, rigorous final written exams, and gain substantial on-the-job experience before passing the specialized Star exam.

This means you receive service from highly skilled technicians, ensuring correct, safe, and efficient work and minimizing downtime. Notably, the UA STAR program is the sole ANSI-accredited and ISO 9000 certified technician certification program in the HVACR, Plumbing, Fire Sprinkler, and Piping industry. We do everything we can to make sure you can trust our technicians’ competence and commitment to excellence.
