TRIPLE B - THREE GENERATIONS OF PLUMBERS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA

"Triple B stands for the three generations of plumbers, who combined, equal over one hundred years of plumbing experience in British Columbia: A heritage and reputation that Triple B is proud of."

The president and founder of Triple B Plumbing and Heating, Bill Bettles, is no stranger when it comes to the plumbing trade. Three generations of Bettles’ have been plumbers in British Columbia since Bill’s grandfather arrived from England in 1897. In 1897, Alfred Bettles set up shop as a plumber in the growing town of New Westminster. Prior to his arrival in Canada, Alfred was a metal worker and plumber in England where he was a founding member of the Plumber’s Union. Alfred himself came from a generation of plumbers in England.

Alfred’s son and Bill’s father, Percy Bettles, entered the plumbing trade like his father. In 1930, Percy ran his own business and was a member of the Plumber’s Union for 40 years. Before retiring in 1976, Percy worked as a plumbing inspector for the City of Richmond for six years. Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, Bill began his apprenticeship in 1968 as a member of the Plumbers and Pipefitter’s Union. Bill worked in the union until 1981 when he started business with his brother John, another plumber since 1964. The brothers parted ways in 1990, starting separate companies. Bill began Triple B Plumbing and Heating while John Bettles today operates a plumbing business with his son Chris.

Triple B specializes in commercial food and grocery stores, having completed over fifty large-scale projects in its twenty years of operation. A strong team of experienced site foremen and crew carry out the completion of these stores on time. Some of the major food store chains Triple B has completed are Safeway, Save-on-Foods, Loblaws, Extra Foods, Real Canadian Superstores, Pricesmart, Overwaitea, Thrifties and Whole Foods. Triple B is not limited to grocery stores however. Other projects have included shopping centers such as Walmart, Home Depot, Rona, Canadian Tire, Staples, Morgan Crossing Shopping Centre, Grandview Corners Shopping Centre, Big Bend Shopping Centre, Queensborough Shopping Centre, and the Chilliwack Shopping Centre.
