About Us

Pine State Services was founded in 1995 by Sam Marcisso Jr. and his partners Lee Nicely and Jim Marcisso.  Since our humble beginnings Pine State has focused on providing a full portfolio of plumbing, heating and drain cleaning services. Over the years Pine State Services, with the addition of committed professionals, has added cooling, refrigeration, ventilation and electrical service and installation to our offerings.

We have been and continue to be customer focused with the hope of growing our company. Through this growth it has been our intention to be a place for both our field technicians and office support professionals to create a career they can prosper at and be proud of.   We support this growth through a commitment to ongoing training and development, a family friendly atmosphere and dedication to giving back to our community.

Pine State Services has had the opportunity to expand its position and offerings in the Greater Portland area through the merger of four highly respected local business.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,


Don’t take our word for it.

Angelina C. from South Portland, Maine says:

“I wanted to make sure that your two install technicians are recognized for the excellent service they recently provided when installing a new heat pump system in my home.

They were:

  • Compassionate (always aware of my two elderly cats and minimizing trauma to them)
  • Considerate (wearing shoe covers so they wouldn’t track snow, etc. on my floors)
  • Knowledgeable (answering all of my questions)
  • Patient (when I kept interrupting with all of my questions!)
  • Polite (asking first and not assuming)
  • Tidy (cleaning up at the end of each day)
  • Tolerant (overlooking my eccentricities and honoring my requests)

Thank you to both to both of them for their hard work and excellent service.”
