“Howe” We Celebrate National Apprenticeship Week

Bill Howe Plumbing in San Diego Announces Apprentice of the Week Winner
Local company honors its san Diego plumbing apprentices in “Apprentice of the Week” online contest

December 30, 2016 San Diego, Calif. –Bill Howe Plumbing started in San Diego in 1980. The original plumber, Bill Howe, built his company over 36 years with a simple mission of creating the best employee environment with training opportunities and career advancement, providing the highest quality of services, and giving back to the community.

As part of the company mission, Bill Howe began sending his employees to the San Diego Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor Academy’s four-year Apprenticeship Program when it began in 2008. Students are able to earn while they learn, gaining the valuable skills and training necessary to become licensed Journeyman Plumbers. Since sending his first group of employees through the school in 2008, Bill Howe has seen over 40 graduate and currently has 27 students enrolled. Not only does Bill Howe pay for 100 percent of the tuition, books, and materials for all four years, but the company ensures that each student has the opportunity to put their skills to the test each day by pairing apprentices with master plumbers in the field.

“We pride ourselves on having the highest trained plumbing specialists in the community providing the most affordable rates,” said Bill Howe, President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc.  “Our employees’ ability to be happy in their careers in turn ensures that our customers are getting only the best, and that is our top priority.” Bill Howe was named as the best San Diego plumbing company by readers in the 2016 Union Tribune Best of SD Reader’s Poll, has been named as a Top Workplace by the Union Tribune four years in a row, and has received numerous industry awards for excellence in their 36-year history.

The second Annual National Apprenticeship Week was celebrated from November 13-19, 2016 and was recognized across the country, through employers, education providers, industry associations, labor unions, and communities large and small. National Apprenticeship Week celebrates the important role apprenticeships play in providing the country with a skilled workforce and new paths for better and stronger careers, something that has been on the decline for many years.

Bill Howe celebrated by honoring each of their apprenticeship students online in a photo contest. Each apprenticeship student could upload photos of them “in the field” doing what they do best-taking care of customers the Bill Howe Way, and the photo with the most votes received $100. The winner, Lance Gajitos, with over 300 votes was presented with a special honor and recognition at the company’s December shop meeting.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
