Read more about Heinco Plumbing Services

Heinco Plumbing Services is a locally owned small business that serves Richmond (Virginia) and surrounding areas. Hein Botha, the owner and founder, is a master plumber with over 20 years of experience in the field. Hein’s passion for water transfer and disbursement began at a young age growing up on a farm in South Africa. Because supplies were not readily available in rural areas, Hein had to think unconventionally and use his creativity to come up with solutions to water accessibility issues and mechanical repairs on the farm. His ability to solve problems is one of his biggest assets in running a small business today.

In 2002, Hein travelled to the United States on a 9-month visa to take a job in Montpelier, Virginia. Hein’s work with irrigation and drainage at the 8-acre greenhouse marked the beginning of his plumbing career in America. Hein’s future father-in-law was a retired plumber in Hanover and he introduced Hein to the residential plumbing trade.

While working at one of the big box plumbing companies in Richmond, Hein realized there was a better way to do business. He started his own company with the intention of building long-term relationships with his customers, as well as spending more time with his family. Over the last few years, previous work colleagues of Hein’s have joined the company, looking for similar benefits. The team works closely together, and all contribute to the quality and success of the business.

Heinco Plumbing Services has grown organically over the last 10 years on word-of-mouth referrals. We have a wide customer base of homeowners, contractors and property managers. We believe in building relationships with our customers and have deep roots in the Richmond community. Give us a call today – we look forward to working with you.

On AfriForum Worldwide’s World Guide you not only become part of a business network; it is also a valuable way of building a support network for those days when the longing becomes too much and everyone just seems too far away.
