Our History

Rick and Brandon grew up in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where they lived until the early 2000s. Rick originally worked with his father, who managed a company that cleaned up and recycled hazardous waste. Here Rick’s primary responsibilities were to construct large scale plumbing for oil refineries and waste water treatment plants.

Rick later worked at a plumbing supply house as a delivery driver. He was offered a job from a customer to be a plumber’s helper. He got his feet wet as an apprentice until 2005, when he decided to move to Florida. He joined a small plumbing company and eventually managed running the trucks, doing estimates, invoicing and making decisions on behalf of the company.

Rick became very passionate about plumbing, and in the beginning of 2008 he attended school and passed the exams to become a licensed master plumber. After being laid off thanks to the sinking economy, Rick activated his license to become the president of Pro-Tec Plumbing, hitting the ground running on January 1, 2009.

Brandon, who is very passionate about golf, decided to move to Florida in 2004 to attend Florida Gulf Coast University. While he became a fairly accomplished junior golfer, his dream of business ultimately prevailed. Brandon graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance. After graduation, he helped Rick hand-dig Pro-Tec Plumbing’s first residential home in 2009. In 2011, Brandon decided to join forces with his brother permanently as the company’s vice president and co-owner, running the operation and office side of the business.
