April 17, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has a distinguished history of offering high quality plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and restoration and flood services. For over 30 years, they have been industry leaders and set the precedence for service companies in their community. The San Diego plumber began the company with the mission to offer the highest quality services at affordable rates while creating a family culture in the local community.  In addition to a dedication to community excellence, Bill Howe Plumbing is the recipient of multiple awards including the latest “IT of the Year” presented by the San Diego Business Journal on April 4, 2013.

Bill Howe Sr. invested in future innovations and technology by hiring Mark Card in 1994; little did either of them know that they would grow as fast as they have and eventually, Mark’s efforts would propel him into an elite company of technological savants representing San Diego businesses.  When he began with the San Diego plumbing company, dispatch still printed calls and communicated information to the plumbers via pagers and payphones.  Mark brought Bill Howe Plumbing into current times when he joined the company and has continually evolved the technological advances the company relies on for information and growth. He was instrumental in the development of the software the company has used since its implementation, which has been ever changing with the growing needs of the company. He has a vigilant eye on future practices to invest in for Bill Howe Plumbing to operate at the top of their trade and his success has added to the list of awards held by Bill Howe Plumbing.

“Part of my responsibility involves making hard decisions every day,” said Mark Card, Chief Technology Officer of Bill Howe Plumbing. “Keeping over 80 technicians in the field with up-to-the-minute information, keeping communication lines open between the field, office and customer, while ensuring accuracy and relevancy of all reporting is a fluid effort that continues to change each day. I enjoy the challenge of anticipating the next steps to benefit the company and look forward to new technology being unveiled at Bill Howe.”

In 2012, Mark prepared for, and facilitated Bill Howe Plumbing’s biggest move in their 30-year history. He was responsible for the design of the new space, which tripled their square footage, from the “ground up.” He created the network infrastructure ensuring all systems would integrate with current needs and allow for implementation of change in new developments within the company. Because of his work, the move was seamless and at no point was the San Diego plumber offline. His efforts in Bill Howe’s continued growth earned him this prestigious award in the medium business category of he “IT of the Year” nominations for 2013.

“Mark was instrumental in our new location choice and design,” said San Diego plumber and Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. President, Bill Howe. “Since 1994, he has made possible new innovations and growth in our company and paved the way for advances in communication keeping us ahead in our industry. In a service-based trade, it is a great honor to be recognized as the best in technology to help strengthen our services for the community. “

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
