Uncle Bill’s Hillcrest Plumbing – A Rich History

Our story is one that starts over 50 years ago with company founder, “Uncle Bill” Schroeder. He purchased the original Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating back in 1967. It took years of hard work before Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating became a reality. As a young man, growing up in Vancouver BC, Uncle Bill fell in love with plumbing at an early age. He got his start at a local company called Crane Plumbing.

This was a plumbing wholesaler at the time that specialized in plumbing equipment and parts. Uncle Bill finally began working as a plumber for a man named Harry Dash who owned the original Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating in Vancouver.

The two worked together for some years, laying the foundational values of hard work, genuineness, and commitment that remains with the company to this day. After some time working with Harry, Uncle Bill purchased full ownership of the business, once Harry had retired. He was determined to build on the legacy that Harry left behind, and took over the company Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating in 1967.

After Uncle Bill took over the business, the company’s main focus was still on selling parts and tools to plumbers, instead of providing plumbing services. Uncle Bill knew plenty about the tools plumbers needed, but originally, they didn’t offer any plumbing services.

The Expansion

It wasn’t until people in the community began calling the store with plumbing emergencies, looking for plumbers. It was then that Uncle Bill decided to expand his business to include plumbing services so that he could help those customers in need of plumbing and heating problems. Uncle Bill started by hiring a few plumbers to service these customers and from there grew into one of Vancouver’s most recognized plumbing brands.

The first Uncle Bill’s Hillcrest Plumbing and Heating location was on bustling Main Street, in Vancouver. The business shares a deep history with this city and its residents. For years we have served the community with trusted excellence in plumbing and heating solutions.
