Growing up in the family business, Joe expanded Frei Plumbing & Heating after he took the reins from his father, Joe Sr., in 1996.  With a multi-division company of 15 employees and over 2,000 customers, he sold the business in 2001 to begin a new chapter.

When Joe was 14, his father would drop him off at a job site and tell him to “dig until I come back.”  Joe had always enjoyed the utility division of his former company, and was excited to take on the challenge of starting a dedicated utility excavating company.  And buy a tractor!

Personal service for our customers is #1.  Joe is hands-on when it comes to talking with customers, handling projects from start to finish, and making sure the customer is satisfied throughout the process.  This dedication to quality and excellence follows Joe on every estimate, every job, and every detail.  He is honest, fair and just plain good at what he does.  It is also important that this philosophy carries through with all of our employees; it’s our team working together that makes this company great.
