Who We Are…

” The Plumbers YOU Can Count On! “


Harris Plumbing is well established with a long history in both York Region and in Simcoe County and Muskoka. In 1974 Ray Harris opened Harris Plumbing in Richmond Hill. In 1980 he moved the business north a bit into Aurora. About that time also, Steve and Rick joined their dad and started their long careers as professional plumbers.


The company built its reputation on being a solid, reliable plumbing company that did much more. The original company started offering complete bathroom design, construction and renovation services because their customers were asking them for it. But they had difficulty with unreliable sub-contractors, so they started doing the work themselves. By hiring the right people with the best talents, and through hard work and long hours, the family business grew to 10 plumbers serving homeowners and business owners throughout York Region.


Thirteen years ago, Steve went out on his own. He moved to Barrie and opened Harris Plumbing North with a branch warehouse located in Torrance – near the peaceful shores of Lake Muskoka. Here he and his team of 5 professional plumbers were able to provide guaranteed customer satisfaction to clients in their homes, at their businesses and as well at their cottages – truly becoming – and earning the title “the family plumber”.  Offering a full suite of expert plumbing repairs; drain services like drain cleaning, drain clearing, main drain replacement; high quality water conditioning services such as softeners, iron filters, UV systems, tankless hot water, etc., HPN as it was known, built a loyal customer following through exemplary customer service and friendly, knowledgeable plumbers.


Six years ago Rick, with a love and a gift for design, also decided to go it alone and opened his own company in York Region ~ Harris Bath and Kitchen, specializing in high quality, affordable bath and kitchen design and renovations. Word spread quickly in the Aurora / Newmarket area about HBK’s quality workmanship and flawless results.  Rick’s trustworthy team became known for being talented craftsmen that were creating dream spaces, on budget and on schedule.


Fast-forward to the summer of 2013…


Father Ray has decided that it’s time to retire and the 2 brothers (now seasoned “Master Plumbers”) merge their well established companies along with their father’s business and operate out of Barrie and Aurora as well as Torrance and Huntsville  to better serve their valued customers, no matter where they live, work ~ or play. “Harris Plumbing ” has emerged as a highly skilled, professional and cohesive team of local-to-you, highly trained, licensed plumbers and technicians bringing courtesy, reliability and quality workmanship back into your life.


The Harris Plumbing Inc. mission is to fulfill their father’s legacy by providing unparalleled customer service and to build life-time relationships with their clients. Today, Rick and Steve feel they have the right processes and people in place to achieve this in the newly amalgamated Harris Plumbing.  We look forward to becoming YOUR family plumbers!


We are “The Plumbers YOU Can Count On!”
