ABOUT US

North Central was founded in 1966 as North Central Plumbing & Heating. During that time it has undergone three ownership transitions; the first from father to son, then the outright sale of the company to Chuck Braun of Braun Industrial in January 2008 and finally the sale of the company to Duncan Lea, who, two years earlier moved into the Valley looking to invest in the community. Like Chuck Braun before him, Duncan strives to meet the demands of a customer first philosophy and has worked hard to ensure the company is well situated to that end.

With each transition, the company continues to grow and diversify it's service and installation portfolio. Since Duncan took over the reins, he has moved into the commercial controls field ensuring the companies continued growth and preparedness for what lies ahead. North Central now offers a variety of services -  Plumbing, HVAC, Refrigeration, DDC Controls, Sheetmetal work, Gas detection,Boiler Installation - maintenace and repairs, commercial A&B Gasfitting, commercial kitchen retrofits and installation, commercial freezer and coolers, and Commercial service agreements  . With a staff of 25, fully trained service technicians we are a well-rounded option for those seeking a qualified service provider able to serve a customer base that stretches from the Bulkley-Nechakos to the Kitimat-Stikines.

 

North Central is situated on Highway 16 of the Bulkley Valley in beautiful Smithers, BC and features a fully furnished sheet metal shop and a 3000 sq/ft fully stocked showroom. North Central continues to seek ways of expanding it's service / installation portfolio by way of a customer service policy that mandates the highest standard of care, the pursuit of innovation and a desire to be at the forefront in a technology driven economy.
