The company’s name and phone number are listed on the roofs of each of its six Isuzu NPR service trucks with Hackney bodies.
“We’ve always wanted to put the name on the roof since we do so much work in condos and high-rises,” explains A to Z Manager John Driscoll Jr. “We couldn’t do it with our vans because the roofs are rippled and ladder racks get in the way. When we got the super trucks, the first thing we lettered was the roof. The (body) wrap came after that.”

“It’s a 1994 Ford and you can barely see the lettering on the side,” proudly notes Lou Maccarone Sr., who, after leading the company for 35 years, stepped down as president two years ago, but still maintains a key presence. “It has 260,000 miles on it and has never had the engine apart. That’s longevity. It’s been a godsend for us.”

When he first moved from Queens, N.Y., to the Tampa area, Frankie Roman’s company mainly focused on custom home plumbing work.
But the economy had other ideas for Hudson, Fla.-based Roman Plumbing. “Change got me through the economic downturn,” he says. “I had to adapt from doing new construction to doing primarily service work.
