About Kruck Plumbing & Heating
Kruck Plumbing and Heating (KPH) is a full line, well respected mechanical contractor specializing in plumbing, piping, welding, air-conditioning/HVAC, refrigeration, and sheet metal work. Kruck specializes in school and hospital projects.
Prior to starting a project KPH evaluates and identifies potential problems and works to resolve those problems. Our highly qualified trained and motivated employees separate us from other contractors. We are in the people business more than in the pipe and duct business.
Currently the business occupies three buildings totaling 42,000 square feet.
- 10,000 square-foot main office building at 734 seventh Street
- 10,400 square-foot HVAC fabrication building at 812 sixth Street
- 21,600 square-foot warehouse at 807 6th Street. Along with leasing 10,000 square-foot in the Boone industrial park.
Our Vision & Goals
We strive to be the contractor people turn to for their plumbing, heating, cooling, and service needs, from a leaky faucet to a new furnace/air conditioner to multi-million dollar new facilities. We value the contributions of each and every employee and we encourage them to become their very best. We are able to gain the trust of the people we work for by giving them the best quality and efficiency of work for a fair price, then stand behind our finished product. We want each and every customer, contractor, owner, architect, and engineer we work with to be not only satisfied, but pleased when we complete a project. This important view we strive for is primarily influenced by each employee they see and the quality, efficiency and accuracy that employee demonstrates.
