    Company History

    Following Vietnam Era Naval Service, Richard Collins began his career in the mechanical and plumbing construction trades in 1974.

    In 1979, Mr. Collins incorporated Collins Plumbing, Inc. (CPI) with the goal of building a company whose reputation for consistent quality work and fair and equitable pricing would be the standard by which others were judged.

    Richard Collins has never compromised on these principles and CPI remains one of San Diego’s most respected and requested plumbing contracts. Over the last 36 years, CPI has developed expertise in both public and private sectors of new construction, through design/build, competitive bid and negotiated contract.

    In 2007, CPI adopted an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), allowing those employees who have dedicated their working careers to CPI to participate in ownership of the company.
