Giving back is part of the job of the Nanaimo plumbing and heating team – Nanaimo News Bulletin

When your home’s plumbing or heating / cooling system is not working, having a service team you can trust can go a long way towards calming down and restoring the functioning of your home’s vital systems.

It takes a lot to become a good plumbing or heating technician, and it’s not just about learning the basics of the craft – it goes deeper!

Roll up your sleeves

Orville Wagar has owned Norms Mobile Plumbing and Heating for half a century – they are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. He bought the company from its founder, Norm LaBurge. Orville knew from an early age that he wanted to work in the trade and, even in his youth, showed determination to be successful in his chosen profession. Growing up on an Alberta farm, Orville learned the importance of rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done, a work ethic he used to learn his craft and run his business.

Family ties

Hard work, customer service and honesty are part of the job for Orville and his team – and it’s a close-knit team. Norm’s plumbing and heating is a real family business. Son-in-law Dave entered the business and learned the trade from Orville. Together they weathered storms and achieved success, but business grew along the way.

And the family too. Today, Dave’s three sons are the third generation to study at Orville’s side, while he has passed on his accumulated knowledge of the craft and his conviction that customer service, quality workmanship and honesty count throughout his life. Malcolm Rush says, “We all love what we do in the community and we always want to do the best for our customers and our hometown.”

Extended family

The Norm’s team knows that their story would be different without the years of support from their community. The community has supported them through good and difficult times and they firmly believe that being part of such a great community means giving back.

The HVAC for Hospice program, for example, supports the Nanaimo Community Hospice Society with a simple idea: Norm’s donates directly to the hospice for every HVAC installation with the aim of reaching US $ 10,000 by September 2022.

Of course, building community spirit begins with children, and children need fuel to be successful. The Nanaimo Ladysmith School Foundation is a great local program that provides hundreds of meals a week to children and families in need. At Tanks for Lunch, every installation of Norm includes a donation made directly to the NLSF, which means more children have a better chance of realizing their potential.
