Wilkins continues transition, brings leading national plumbing company to New Hampshire
Bedford, NH (September 15, 2015) – Residents throughout the Bedford area may have recently noticed bright new yellow trucks on the road. The trucks are a sign of a growing local business. Last month, Bob Wilkins, owner of Wilkins, a local plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical company, joined forces with the leading national heating and air conditioning brand, One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®. Customers have been extremely supportive and excited about the new products and services this national brand offers. This week, Wilkins continues to expand by transitioning his plumbing operations to Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, one of the largest residential plumbing brands in North America. It recently ranked among the top plumbing companies in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500.
“Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is known for its innovative products, quality work and on-time services. These are the same principles I’ve operated my plumbing company on for years, so this is great for our customers. They will see the benefit of a strong national brand, but with that same local feel we’ve always delivered,” said Bob Wilkins. In the coming weeks, Wilkins will transition his electrical business to another leading national brand, Mister Sparky.
Wilkins currently has 34 team members working out of the Bedford headquarters, but as the new companies grow, additional technicians, plumbers, electricians and staff will be added. These jobs are in high demand and provide excellent earnings potential. This will benefit the local economy. Residents should start seeing the bright blue trucks with the friendly Ben Franklin character throughout the area.
