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.”

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
