MacGregor celebrates six decades of plumbing service

HARBOR SPRINGS — MacGregor Plumbing and Heating at 235 Franklin Park, is celebrating 60 years of business.

Founded in 1962 by John MacGregor, the company is now run by his daughter, Julie Wieman, who has grown the company to include 20 employees. 

Wieman started at the company in 1991 and later took over as president. MacGregor died in 2009, which is when Wieman became full owner. 

Wieman hadn’t intended to join her father’s business at first; she received a degree in psychology and planned to pursue a career in that field but after graduating, she went to fill in at the company and went full-time that fall. Since then, she hasn’t left. 

MacGregor had a passion for the plumbing industry; the employees, the customers and the craft.
