About Carlson Duluth Company

Over one hundred years ago, A. P. Green passed through Ellis Island, NY, on his journey from Sweden. Upon arrival, A. P.'s last name was changed to Carlson because he was the son of Carl Green. This was common due to the fact that there were translation barriers where people were given the names that were the easiest to deal with at that time.

A. P. was a handyman in Sweden, but when he arrived in America, he landed his first job in a harness factory. After being in Duluth only a few years, he bought a general store on the Southeast corner of 46th Avenue West and Grand. Along with operating the store, A. P. also ran the West Duluth Post Office from that site. Later, as his entrepreneurial skills grew, he expanded his store to a second location in New York Mills, MN.

A. P. kept in contact with a friend from Sweden who landed in Winnipeg, Canada. His first job was at the first plumbing company in the Winnipeg area. A. P. was invited to travel to Canada for a visit and see what it was all about. He was full of energy and saw that there was a need in this new-found industry, so he soon sent his oldest son, Walter, to learn all that he could about plumbing. Walter was only 13 years old, but he was a big strong boy and a fast learner. After a year or so in Canada, he came back to Duluth to teach his younger brothers Cliff, August, Art, Glen, and Albert what he had learned. In 1905, they formed Carlson Bros. Plumbing and Heating of West Duluth. They started out small, but during the early 1900s construction was booming and their company grew fast.

Carlson Duluth Co. is located on 2901 Helm Street, which is at the bottom of 29th Avenue West and Interstate 35, only a mile and a half from where it all began. Carlson Duluth Co. offers full-service plumbing, heating, and air conditioning installations for your home or business along with a state-of-the-art service and repair department.

Carlson Duluth Co.'s tag line is "Generation After Generation." Craig and Jeremy take their heritage seriously and have committed themselves to the plumbing and heating industry, which they proudly display in their 90-year-old office building with artifacts from the days of old.

Carlson Duluth Company took care of our family in the dead of winter. We had a 27 year old furnace that died on a -11F day. Carlson Duluth came out and diagnosed the problem and set our house up with heaters. We ended up purchasing a new furnace because it was needed. Their staff was professional, responsive, and answered all questions that I had asked. They even corrected issues that were not their issues because it was needed. I would highly recommend their company to anyone reading this. Get it done right!

We have worked with Carlson Duluth several times and have always had an excellent experience. They are timely, professional, and install high quality furnaces. Their quotes are detailed and complete, so I know exactly what I am getting. Most recently, they acted fast to get out to us when a furnace failed ahead of a dangerously cold snap. Thanks to Jeremy and the whole team!

I was looking for advice on what type of fuel to use and the sales staff helped me pick out the right boiler and furnace for the job! It was really helpful to know exactly what I was getting before it was installed and the process was super smooth. I'd highly recommend for anyone looking for a new furnace!

Showed up and got scared away by somebody arguing in an alley then tried to Bill me $150..... complete joke, didn't even step foot inside my house and attempted to charge can't make this up. Worse than Schubitz plumbing which is terrible

Extremely good work. Another family member went with another company in the area which gave me a unique opportunity to compare. The quality of work and components (referencing the piping, securing of piping etc.) placed into your home by Carlson are clearly superior and of higher quality than the other companies install at my family members house. Team that conducted the install at my home clearly know their profession and conducted themselves as professionals. They walked me through everything they did and why both before they started and after completion. 10/10

We had mini-split units installed by Mike from Carlson. Mike was outstanding right from the beginning. He communicated when he would be out to work and followed through as planned. His attention to detail was impressive, from planning location of our new A/C units to maximize aesthetics and function while also keeping cost in mind. His hard work and thoughtfulness resulted in a quality product and seamless installation that blended in with the outside of our house. The turn around time was great - same day quote followed by install 1 week later. Would highly recommend!

Carlson Duluth is unmatched in their professionalism and communication skills. I have been fortunate to have worked side by side with Jeremy and Glen on countless projects. Their knowledge and willingness to work together to complete a project is always appreciated! Looking forward to many more years of cooperation!
