New Year’s Day 1977 marked a big day in the life of Lynnville resident Wilbur Terpstra. It’s the day he decided to take the plunge and open his own business – Terpstra Plumbing Heating & Electric.

Terpstra Plumbing Heating & Electric became more established in the next few years. By 1983, the Terpstras’ garage – used for storing appliances and parts – was maxed out. That’s when they built the current building located at 507 East Street, Lynnville. A year or so after that, they created an office within the building. 

Wilbur's son Mike Terpstra purchased the business after Wilbur retired. Mike ran the business since 1999. Derrick Terpstra (Mike's son) Now owns the business and runs the day-to-day operations as of January of 2023. Just like how Mike worked with his father, Mike works alongside his son Derrick Terpstra who is a licensed Master Electrician.

Those who need plumbing, heating, cooling or electrical work done can give Terpstra PHC a call from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. More than likely, Brenda (Mike's wife) will be the one to answer; she’s been answering phones and doing bookwork for the company for over 30 years.
