Spanning generations of families helping to ensure proper plumbing in thousands of central Illinois businesses, E.L. Pruitt Co. is celebrating a milestone this month.

The Springfield contractors are recognizing their 50th anniversary. Founded by the late Ed Pruitt Sr. in July 1971, the company has been involved with some of the biggest projects in central Illinois including the new downtown Springfield YMCA, the expansion of Akorn Pharmaceuticals in Decatur and upgrades to Memorial Medical Center, HSHS St. John’s Hospital and other area hospitals.

Owner John Pruitt, Ed’s son, said he credits the quality of the employees and the customers as the reason E.L. Pruitt has been able to survive and continually expand over the past 50 years. He started with the company as a truck driver and acquired the business from his father alongside his brother and past co-owner Ed Pruitt Jr.
