Taking a traditional trade and adopting a unique model, Jermaine Gaines is transforming the plumbing industry.
Gaines Plumbing LLC offers commercial and residential clients assistance in the areas of new construction, remodels, repairs, installations and more. The company serves both electric and natural gas clients. By implementing year-round service agreements, something unheard of in his industry, Gaines is offering peace of mind, building a steady cash flow, keeping his team working and creating the resources to hire more employees.
To combat a shortage of craftsmen, Gaines is initiating a plumbing academy to boost the skill levels in Mobile.
Founded in 2011 with a mission to provide reliable and affordable plumbing, Gaines gives back through donating services to the elderly and to those in financial need and supporting multiple nonprofit organizations.
His company revenue has increased in excess of 50 percent over the last several years. Gaines recently secured a new warehouse and offices and plans include more new hires.
