Third Generation Kansas Dealer Carries On Tradition

SENECA, KS — Don’t let the name fool you. Eisenbarth Plumbing has been serving the heating and cooling needs in this Kansas community for more than 50 years. In the Dealer Access, a newsletter for Arcoaire dealers, Phil and Barbara Boeding are profiled as third-generation owners of the business that was founded by their grandfather Ed Eisenbarth 54 years ago.

Barbara began going into work with her mother when she was 10 years old and has worked in the same capacity for 25 years. She handles residential sales and Phil handles estimates for large commercial jobs and supervises the commercial work crew.

The company has 16 employees and has a service radius of 45 miles, which is easy to understand since the nearest big city is 75 miles away. Barbara describes her location as “the middle of nowhere.” Despite that, they have a customer base of between 2,000 to 3,000 people.
