San Diego Plumber Celebrates 25 Year Anniversary at Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc.

Employee loyalty rewarded at local family owned and operated San Diego plumbing company

June 23, 2016 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has been a household name in San Diego since it’s inception in 1980. For the first decade, it was just Bill Howe and his father, Bill Howe Sr. In 35 years, they have grown to over 150 employees across three divisions and become the trusted name for a San Diego plumber, HVAC specialist and restoration technicians. Operating from the mission they established in 1980, they have truly become a company of success stories.

Ron Riggs is one such story. He began with Bill Howe Plumbing since the first location at 974 Thomas St. in Pacific Beach. He was hired as one of the original technicians at the San Diego plumbing company as a teenager fresh from Ohio with little experience. “I came to California after high school, without family or a job, and the Howe’s took me in,” said Ron. “I am successful today, married with a house of my own and a great career because of Bill Howe Plumbing.” Ron has remained a full time employee with the company since joining in 1991 and has grown his skill set form minor drain snaking to full plumbing applications, water heaters, high end fixtures, and is one of the most loved by customers.

“We celebrate every anniversary, from one year to 35, but Ron’s was extra special. He is such an asset to our company and part of the Bill Howe story, and integral to our success,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “We are proud of being family owned and operated because it means our family is 150 strong and growing. And, knowing that the employees who have been with us for so many years are still growing and succeeding with us means we must be doing something right.”

Ongoing success and employee loyalty stems from their dedication to their mission of creating healthy and happy employees, taking care of customers like family through professional and expert services, and giving back to their community by volunteering time and resources.

Of the original handful of employees that started at 974 Thomas St. in Pacific Beach, California, Bill Howe still employs three of them. Between them, they have over 82 years of experience in San Diego.

Ron was celebrated at the June company meeting on June 15 with his wife Andrea in attendance. Bill Howe presented him with a bonus check and luxury watch.

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.
