About Us

Quality Service Since 1894

More than 125 years ago, in 1894, Charles J. Laudenslager, Sr. founded our company in Guthsville, Pennsylvania and focused on plumbing, heating, and roofing. While our name has evolved over the years, our commitment to the principles upon which we were founded – quality service, quality workmanship, and quality results – has never wavered.

1940s. Charles J. Laudenslager, Sr. passed away in 1943, just a few years after his son, Charles J. Laudenslager, Jr., took over the business. Charles Jr. changed the company’s name to C.J. Laudenslager, Jr. and moved it to Orefield, Pennsylvania.

1950s. Then, in 1955, Charles Jr.’s son, Elwood, became a partner in the company and added home fuel oil deliveries to our list of services. Our name became C. J. Laudenslager and Son.

1960s. In 1965, Elwood took over the business under the name E.F. Laudenslager, focusing on heating, air conditioning, and fuel oil delivery. In 1967, he sold off the plumbing end of the business.

1970s. In 1972, Elwood’s son, Stephen, became actively involved in the business, carrying on the family tradition.

1980s. In 1981, the business was incorporated in and the name changed to E.F. Laudenslager, Inc.

1990s. In 1994, Stephen was elected to the position of corporate president. In response to the rising costs of energy, we began to focus on energy savings and efficiency.

2000s. Under Stephen’s leadership, we began to offer propane fuel delivery service in place of oil, and sold our oil fuel delivery service in 2007. Since then, the propane delivery service played a major role in the company’s success.

2010s. In 2011, long-time employees Joseph Natale and Mike George agreed to take over the business. They currently own and operate E.F. Laudenslager, Inc.

In 2016, we added a 60,000-gallon propane storage facility near Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

2020s. Now, in response to requests from our customers, we have returned to our roots and now offer the services of our Licensed Master Plumber to handle our clients’ plumbing needs.

Our ability to adapt to the changing times and to our customers’ needs has been integral to our success. From a small, family-owned business to a larger enterprise that continues to grow and evolve while upholding our more than century-long reputation for quality, we have never lost sight of what matters most: our customers. We deliver quality service our clients can trust. That’s why year after year, generation after generation, they continue to call on E.F. Laudenslager, Inc. for their heating, cooling, ventilation, plumbing, and electrical needs.
