It’s more than what we do.
(Get it – ‘Pipe’r?)
It’s a culture.
Our goal is to make Piper the funnest* place to work.
*It’s not a real word, but it’s a real goal!
This may seem too generic to take seriously, but we hold this value in the highest importance.
This doesn’t only apply to how we treat our customers, but to all those we come in contact with daily.
Simple. So that we can provide our customers with nothing but the best.
We are committed to continuing education for our employees in both the hard and soft skills. This includes learning from others if they show us a better way to do something.
Rain or shine, we are going to do what it takes to get the job done on time and on budget.
In 1976 Ray Hendrickson opened a small family owned residential plumbing company called Ray’s Plumbing. Ray slowly and consistently grew the company adding commercial plumbing to his scope of work in the 1980s. Ray incorporated in 1998 and included 4 of his sons as partners. The management of the company shifted from Ray to his son Ken at the time of incorporation. Ken decided to move the company’s focus to commercial plumbing, and hired Lorin Erickson to help with estimating, project managing and general office management through the company transition. In 2006 Ken decided he was ready to move on and put the company for sale. As the company had continued steady growth since the transition to commercial plumbing, and had proven to be a worthy business venture, Lorin decided to take the opportunity and buy the company.
Lorin’s vision of Ray’s Plumbing expanded far beyond its original boundaries. He envisioned a professional full mechanical company including plumbing, hydronics and HVAC and in 2008 Piper Mechanical was born. Piper Mechanical is licensed to work in both Washington and Oregon.
Our goal at Piper is to be innovative and efficient while having fun and creating purpose for ourselves and our employees.
