George Plumbing Co. (San Antonio)
George Plumbing Company, Inc. was established in 1947 by George F. Saliba. Mr. Saliba began his career as a master plumber in 1920 in San Antonio, Texas. With only $200.00, a panel truck, a vacant lot on Roosevelt Avenue, and tons of courage, he started his business. Eventually, Mr. Saliba purchased a building and property on Olmos Drive. However, due to city construction, the city purchased the location from Mr. Saliba to build a drainage ditch. In 1957, with the proceeds from the sale of the property to the city, Mr. Saliba built a building and moved the business to Basse Road. Mr. Saliba passed away in 1984 leaving the company to his son George L. Saliba. In 2003 Mr. Saliba built a new building and moved the business to its present location on Spectrum Drive.
Mr. Saliba's main focus was residential and light commercial plumbing repairs. Due to his high quality service through the years, Mr. Saliba built a large and dedicated customer base. Many of these customers are still with us today, and have been for over 30 years.
The reason the customers have stayed is confidence. Customer confidence has made this company what it is today. Past and present management holds customer satisfaction and confidence as the single most important philosophy in the organization.
It is our goal to make every customer as comfortable as possible, whether we are working at the customer's home or business. From the first time we come in contact with a customer, we want that customer to call us for the rest of his or her life.
Although the founding Mr. Saliba has passed away, his goals and beliefs are alive and well, and continue to be the foundation of George Plumbing Company, Inc.
