Celebrating 90 Years of Service to the Greater Hamilton Area

First off — thank you! Without you, and everyone we have served over the last 90 years, none of our success would have been possible. As a family-owned and operated business, it is truly the care we place in our customers that has taken us to new heights, offering a broad set of services to meet demand and exceed expectations. During our time as one of the Greater Hamilton Area’s leading sewer and water construction and drain cleaning companies, we have had the opportunity to forge a close relationship with the community, one based on mutual trust and respect. Whether it is with a family or business, it is through these partnerships that we’ve become successful.

Our Team

Our customers expect and deserve the best. That is why all employees have been carefully selected to provide knowledgeable, professional and courteous service. Our more than 40 skilled employees also take exceptional pride in their work, dedicating themselves to provide quality, efficient service on every call. For these reasons, we’ve always had a steady stream of repeat customers.

Our Founding: A Man, His Bicycle & Drain Snake

Let’s take a short trip back in time to 1930. Our founder, William Groves, began the company with just a drain snake on his shoulder, riding a bicycle through Hamilton’s streets and visiting various homes that were experiencing backed up sewers.

In 1933 his son W. L. Groves joined the business and together they expanded the services and work performed by the company. His son R. J. Groves started learning the business in 1970 and invested in new technologies and ideas to better serve our customers. These initiatives allowed Wm. Groves Limited to fulfill all our customers’ needs — an attribute that still carries on to this day.

The fourth generation has now been involved in Wm. Groves Limited since 2000. R. J.'s children Will and

Jennifer Groves are equally appreciative and excited to fill their predecessor's shoes and uphold their values moving forward into the future.

Service, Integrity & Honesty

We provide 24 hour emergency service. We are not satisfied until our customer's job is performed correctly and in the most cost effective and efficient manner. Our company believes in doing it right the first time. We have highly skilled, knowledgeable, courteous and experienced employees that take pride in their work. Will and Jennifer Groves believe that service, integrity, honesty is the backbone of their company's philosophy and one which will continue to make them one of Hamilton's best known and respected contracting firms.
