About Severson

Owners Dave and Elaine Severson attribute the success and longevity of their business to the values they consistently apply regardless of downturns in the local economy which make maintaining quality of business more difficult.

Severson Plumbing & Mechanical Inc. is a family owned business established in 1977 and has been successfully serving clients in Central Oregon for over 40 years. Dave and Elaine welcomed their son, Jason, to join in the business by developing Severson Fire Protection, a separate but sister company, operating out of the same location with shared resources.

Severson Values

As a family, we’ve worked together to shape the values that have led to our success:

  • Long term highly skilled local plumber
  • A major emphasis on customer satisfaction
  • Honesty and integrity in customer relations
  • Sound business practices resulting in stability through market fluctuations

Severson Plumbing and Severson Fire Protection care deeply about the community we live in and seek opportunities to support local organization and programs.

Our Employees

We are very proud of our long term, talented, well trained crew of skilled plumbers for whom;

  • We pay the industry standard for wages (to keep them in our local community)
  • We provide health insurance and other benefits to help them support their families
  • We provide ongoing professional education to ensure that their technical skills are on the cutting edge of the industry

Sound Business Practices

When markets are down, we focus on “Value Engineering.” This is an expertise in helping customers find legitimate ways to save money rather than reckless slashing of pricing just to get the job and with intent to make it back up on later changes.

We are now implementing “flat rate pricing” for service and repair. This method is based on an initial assessment by the plumber so that the customer knows exactly what they will pay before the work starts.

Financial Strength

Severson Plumbing has managed to stay sound financially through the recent upheavals in our local market. Well-insured and bonded, with good credit and minimal debt, we are well positioned to take on big jobs and assure customers that we will not default on any job cost, putting the customer in jeopardy.

Our Community

As long-term residents and business owners, we have strong ties to Central Oregon. We also strive to support and give back to our Central Oregon Community which we are so proud to be a part of. The recognition that economic downturns affect programs that serve those in need as much as businesses like ours, we intend to consistently give as much as we possibly can. We have been and will continue supporting as able, Grandma’s House, Bethlehem Inn, Kid’s Center, Habitat for Humanity, Bend HS sports, 4-H, Shriners, and others.
