Greenville Native Is Revolutionizing The Plumbing Industry

GREENVILLE, N.C. (April 7, 2022) — In 2019, Ease Plumbing started with one licensed plumber. Now, there are 8 licensed plumbers who are leading the way through the Market Leader program, one of which is Greenville native, Aaron Williams.

Aaron was still in high school when he first entered the plumbing industry. Making $8 an hour, he learned the basics of plumbing, how to listen to his customers’ needs and how to think outside the box to solve their problems.

A few years passed and in November of 2020, Aaron earned his plumbing license at the age of 24— a huge feat in and of itself. As he began to look for ways to continue elevating his career, he found Ease Plumbing. In January of 2021, Aaron joined the Ease Plumbing team and became Ease’s first Market Leader when he opened the Greenville branch in April of 2021.

The Market Leader program is for technicians, like Aaron, who want to become more than just technicians as it gives them the autonomy to run their own branch. This position is meant to give techs the feeling of ownership without the headaches of finances, marketing, dispatching, accounting, and all things on the backend.

Ease Plumbing’s vision is to take what Chick-Fil-A did in the food industry and translate that into the trades. With current talent in the trades aging out, it is now more important than ever to expand the talent pool with fresh tradesmen. The majority of plumbers are approaching retirement age and many are wondering who will take their place once they retire. Ease Plumbing is on a mission to fill those gaps and provide opportunities for people who work in the trades and want to be owners but never felt they had the back-end support to do so.

“I want to grow young plumbers in Greenville and also grow the best plumbing service company in eastern North Carolina,” Aaron said. “I’m hoping that through this we can change the way that people look at tradespeople.”

Since Ease Plumbing Greenville’s opening in April of 2021, Aaron has purchased four trucks and grown his team from three plumbers to seven plumbers. Aaron and his team have run over 2000 calls in their first year and are continuing to meet and serve new clients daily. All of this to say, Ease Plumbing has big things in store for 2022 and the years to come, but we couldn’t do it without our Market Leaders. What Ease Plumbing has created for these plumbers is truly one of a kind, and it works.
