Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) is a family owned and operated company that was founded in 1975 by Frank Bracco, who started MPI out of the back of his car. Since this humble beginning, we have made a commitment to deliver quality products and services to the greater Central Florida community. We had only two customers in that first year, but by 1979, we had 10 employees and dozens of customers in the Orlando area. We also officially named the company Modern Plumbing and Irrigation that year and soon added US Homes to our list of prominent customers.
By 1980, we added site development and equipment in order to meet demands of residential communities. In the years immediately following, our workforce increased to nearly 70 employees to match production of approximately 600 residential homes per year. By 1985 our areas of expertise had grown to include residential plumbing, irrigation, site development, and fire protection.
MPI continued to grow so rapidly that by 1989 we had to relocate to 255 Old Sanford Oviedo Road, an office front with an attached warehouse. Because of the surge in growth and demand, we made the decision that same year to focus exclusively on plumbing and piping for commercial, institutional and custom–built residential homes. In 1990, Modern Plumbing Industries implemented profit sharing as a means of distributing part of the company’s financial success to the employees who made it possible. That year, we also renamed the company Modern Plumbing Industries, Incorporated.
The newly–named company relocated again in 1998 to our current facility, and we began investing in more advanced technology. Although we had grown significantly, we still operated as a humble, family–owned business, working together as a team. In 2002, we completely reorganized the company and management teams to become more efficient and to better serve our customers, and by 2005 we had 85 employees working with us!
Today, Modern Plumbing Industries proudly serves the greater Orlando metropolitan area with the same commitment to quality and service that helped us get our start. We are always happy to hear from our clients, and we’ve had relationships with some of our customers for over 30 years.
