Maloney Plumbing was founded by William “Duke” Maloney and his wife, Mary Maloney, in May 1964 after the couple gave up farming in Idaho to move to Phoenix. Duke Maloney learned the trade from his father, who owned his own plumbing business. WJ Maloney Plumbing mainly focused on commercial new construction business until Kathryn “Kitty” Maloney-Langmade joined her parents’ company upon finishing graduate school at Thunderbird.
“I moved back home in 1996 and initially worked in accounting with my mother,” says Maloney-Langmade, owner and managing member of the company. “After hiring a bookkeeper for the business, I started the service division.”
