THE DURHAM BULLS AND NEWCOMB & COMPANY: TWO TRIANGLE TRADITIONS
Mar 24, 2016
What are some of your favorite thoughts about summer?
If you’re like Newcomb and Company, one of them goes like this:
The sun is shining, the grass glows green, you’ve got a Coke and a hot dog, and there’s a batter up — it’s a perfect day at the ballpark. The Durham Bulls, the Triangle’s well-loved minor league baseball team, are playing. Maybe you’re here because America’s favorite pastime is your favorite, too. Maybe you’ve seen Bull Durham, the 1988 Kevin Costner movie based on the Bulls, and decided to see the action for yourself. Whatever the reason, you sit back as the dust flies on the diamond and think, yup … life’s pretty good.
TWO TRIANGLE TRADITIONS
Newcomb and Company loves the Bulls too, and believe it or not, we have a lot in common. We’re both Triangle institutions; the team that became the Bulls started back in 1902 as the Durham Tobacconists, and they’ve been entertaining Triangle residents in their current form since 1913. That’s more than 100 years of rich history, and you’re a part of it every time you take a seat.
Newcomb and Company’s history doesn’t date back quite that far — but then again, neither does air conditioning! 40 years after the inception of the Bulls, in 1954, Newcomb and Company opened its doors to the newly heated and cooled public. We’ve been the Triangle’s most trusted A/C service company ever since. For those counting, that’s 60 years of innovation and integrity in our field and unparalleled service to residential and commercial customers.
THE TIMES, THEY ARE A’CHANGIN’
Just like the Durham Bulls, Newcomb and Company has changed with the times. The Bulls built a bigger, better ballpark, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, in 1998; a few years later, in 2013, DBAP hosted the largest baseball fan crowd that has ever gathered in our state. Likewise, Newcomb and Company has expanded. We’ve set up shop in Wilmington, and we offer plumbing services to complement our A/C offerings.
So if you wake up in the middle of night to find that your kitchen is wetter than a rainy day on the diamond, give us a call; we provide 24/7 emergency plumbing repairs! And if you get home from the game to find that the heat of the day has followed you into your house, we can help get you back to comfort.

After all — you can’t fully enjoy a day with your local sports heroes if you’re worried about home repairs, can you?
