Vic founded us in 1995
"When you consider the contributions that plumbing and sanitation make to the quality of all of our lives,
then much of the other things that we do just seem so much less significant.
My goal with our business, is to provide top quality plumbing products,
with fair low prices,
with the best service, to the most people that I can.
That way I know that I am contributing much to our society."
