About Toro Plumbing and Mechanical

Toro Plumbing and Mechanical, LLC is a service, installations, and repair company serving New Jersey clients exclusively and applying decades of expertise and in-depth knowledge of plumbing, hot water, and steam heating systems.

You Already Know Us

You already know us, John and David Cataneo, and Angeline Hudson, as Gateway Plumbing and Heating. Now we expect Toro Plumbing and Mechanical to become another household name as we continue to offer our more than 80 combined years of experience to our loyal, and new, New Jersey customers.


What does this name change mean for current, loyal Gateway customers who live in New Jersey?


In simple terms, it’s a change of name.  TORO will honor ALL warranties and service contracts previously held by Gateway Plumbing and Heating and our customers can continue to expect the same professional, expert workmanship that they’ve come to know and rely on when working with Gateway.
