Looking for reliable and efficient plumbing services in the Salem area? Look no further than A-1 Plumbing, Inc. They are your go-to plumbing experts, providing superior installation, servicing, and repairs for all types of plumbing and drain issues. Whether it’s clogged drains, broken pipes, or water heater woes, A-1’s team of skilled technicians goes beyond “basic plumbing” to provide customers with intelligent and comprehensive solutions. Named “Best of the Willamette Valley” in both 2022 and 2023, A-1 has set the standard for the industry, and it’s a high bar to be sure!

A-1 Plumbing was initially founded in 2004 (then incorporated in 2005) by Carl Hagan. He built the business and ran it for almost 20 years, but is now in the process of passing the torch. Current General Manager, Kenn Yax, along with Journeyman Plumber, Kyris Clampitt, are incredibly excited to be partnering up and purchasing the business from Carl. I had the pleasure of speaking with Kenn for the purpose of this article and found him to be both genuinely affable and extremely enthusiastic about the endeavor. Carl clearly set a solid foundation from which Kenn and Kyris can build upon, but they are anxious to take it to the next level.

Kenn has clear objectives with respect to the future of the business. Internally, he seeks to foster a stable, positive, and supportive environment that focuses on employee’s strengths. He believes in building a team that is competitive within the industry, not just within its own members. Likewise, he considers himself to be on equal grounds with his team, managing and working alongside them rather than from a position above. In short, he treats employees the way he wants to be treated himself, and that, of course, extends to customers as well. Being hired for a job means entering a new relationship, one where the customer will become a member of the A-1 extended family, and will enjoy all of the benefits that relationship has to offer. To Kenn and his team, there are no customers, only friends.

From plumbing repairs to drain cleaning, to water heater installations and repairs, to sink and toilet installations and repairs, to repiping, remodeling, and more, A-1 Plumbing, Inc. has got you covered. Focusing on residential and smaller commercial jobs, they are very competitively priced while still providing the best service and highest quality work the industry offers. And they are available 24/7 for emergency plumbing services! If you have a plumbing concern, contact A-1 today and discover for yourself why they are considered Willamette Valley’s best!
