The History of Cabrillo Plumbing, Heating and Cooling
In 1957, Abraham Kent opened up a small hardware shop called Cabrillo Hardware and Plumbing Supplies. In 1959, in need of more space, Cabrillo moved to the Sunset District.
Glimpsing into the future, Mr. Kent decided to change his focus. He started out by obtaining his Plumbing Contractor’s license in 1961. By 1963, he had closed the hardware part of his business and substituted it entirely with plumbing repair and remodel services. In June of 1976, Mr. Kent’s son Michael took over the business.
With plumbing as a focus, Cabrillo steadily grew throughout the years. In September of 1990, Cabrillo decided to join forces and merge with Meehan Plumbing, run by Jeff Meehan. In 1994, Cabrillo Plumbing and Heating elected to join Nexstar, Inc., a progressive plumbing and heating organization. Just two years later, in 1996, the Nexstar group voted Cabrillo Company of the Year for achieving the number 1 ranking nationwide in customer service.
Today, Cabrillo has operations centers in San Francisco, the Peninsula and the East Bay. We’re easy to recognize in our stylish service vehicles and clean all-white uniforms.
