Buddy & Zakosek

Paul L. Buddy and excavator Tom Zakosek began Buddy & Zakosek in 1953 at 1020 Mason Avenue in Aurora, Illinois. Paul and Tom employed between four and thirty people at one time. Service and repair work in residential housing was the initial focus of the business. As the company’s work ethic and reputation became evident, the number of customers increased to include the tract housing, commercial and industrial industries.

The Beginning of Paul L. Buddy Plumbing

In February 1974, Paul L. and his son Paul F. started Paul L. Buddy Plumbing and Heating. They moved their shop to 1041 Oliver Avenue in Aurora. In March 1977, Paul L. suddenly passed away. Paul F. took over operations and management of the business. The company continued to do service and industrial work and added government projects and schools to its repertoire.

Current Day

In 1977, Paul moved the business to its current location at 195 West Ashland in Aurora. During the 1990s, Paul’s sons joined the business doing service and office work. Recently, with the addition of Paul’s grandson to the company, it’s become a four-generation family business.

To separate the commercial work from the service work, Paul created the commercial sector of Cannonball Mechanical, which has become the primary name of the business.
