About Us

Our Harris Plumbing history – 49 years and still going strong! :

Harris Plumbing is well established with a long history in York Region, Simcoe County and Muskoka.  In 1974, after many years of senior positions with large mechanical plumbing contractors, Master Plumber Ray Harris hung out the Harris Plumbing Inc. shingle in York Region.  A few years later his sons Steve and Rick joined their dad and started their long careers as professional plumbers.

Harris Plumbing built its reputation on being a trustworthy plumbing company that took exceptional care of their customers. By hiring the right people with the best talents and attitudes, and through hard work and long hours, the business quickly grew to 5 talented and well-respected plumbers.

In 2002, Steve, by now also a Master Plumber, launched his own plumbing business when he moved to Barrie and opened Harris Plumbing North which included a branch warehouse located in Torrance – on the shores of Lake Muskoka.  Serving Simcoe County and Muskoka, he and his then highly trained team of 5 professional plumbers were able to provide superior quality services to clients in their homes, at their businesses and as well at their cottages.

Ray decided that it was finally time to retire in 2013.  Steve stepped up to amalgamate the original Harris Plumbing in Richmond Hill, Newmarket and Aurora with Harris Plumbing North serving Barrie, Orillia and Muskoka  to better serve their valued customers, no matter where they live, work … or play!

TODAY with 9 service trucks on the road and still growing, the Harris Plumbing Inc. mission is to carry on the family legacy by providing unparalleled customer service and to build life-time relationships with our clients while celebrating and reinforcing our cohesive team culture daily.  Steve stands behind his solid family values when he leads his professional team by example and demonstrates honesty, integrity and a real passion for quality.
