Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Wins First Place Heilbron Award


Recognized for Company’s Pay it Forward Spirit, Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Wins First Place Heilbron Award

June 28, 2011, San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc., one of San Diego’s largest family-owned plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and restoration companies, has been selected as a winner of the Heilbron Awards, sponsored by San Diego Rotary Club 33 and the San Diego Business Journal.

The first of its kind, the Heilbron Awards, named after Carl Heilbron, first president of the San Diego Rotary Club 33 in 1911, recognize small, medium, and large public and private companies that exemplify the pay it forward spirit and give of themselves and their professional expertise to advance the well-being and success of others in the community.  Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. was awarded the first place award in the medium business category. San Diego Rotary Club 33 is one of the largest in the country and among nearly 30,000 Rotary Clubs now active globally.

While the company offers community service to various organizations, i.e. San Diego Food Bank, American Heart Association, Rebuild Together San Diego, and the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program, the Heilbron Award was specifically awarded to Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. for the role the company plays with the San Diego Job Corps. San Diego Job Corps is the local chapter of the national program, Job Corps, administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. The program offers young adults of San Diego a comprehensive array of career development services through a holistic career development training approach. Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. was the first plumbing company to get involved in San Diego Job Corps over eight years ago and today is the only plumbing company that continues to work with the students to provide them with on-the-job training. Without the support of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc., these students would not have access to experiencing the work day of a plumbing, heating or air conditioning technician and learn the ins and outs of a successful and ethical trade company.

“Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. is proud to give back to the San Diego community which has been so loyal to us since 1980,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “We are passionate about our trade and are committed to helping San Diego’s young adults learn what it takes to be successful in their careers and show them areas of the industry that they wouldn’t learn in the classroom.”

To learn more about the “pay-it-forward” spirit of the team at Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc., visit or contact Bill Howe Communications Director, Julie Riddle at [email protected].

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
