Howrah Plumbing Pty Ltd commenced operations in July 1982 as Howrah Plumbing Service, and became incorporated in 1986. In 1997 we purchased our office and workshop facility in Mornington and by 2005 we had developed a strategic plan with the sole aim of providing a professional and efficient plumbing service to our clients. In 2010 the company gained OH&S accreditation, and in the same year we launched our Fuji Clean Waste Water Division.
BY 2011 HOWRAH PLUMBING HAD BECOME THE LARGEST PLUMBING COMPANY IN TASMANIA.
In 2013 we finalised our Quality Assurance accreditation. We are currently applying for Environmental accreditation.
The company operates from our Head Office and workshop facility at 3/10 Electra Place, Mornington.
Howrah Plumbing Pty Ltd is a member of the Master Plumbers Association of Tasmania, the Institute of Plumbing Australia, AIM Australia, HIA and the Tasmania Chamber of Commerce.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Our Environment, Our Responsibility
Since 2014, we have taken numerous steps to reduce Howrah Plumbing’s environmental impact. As a good corporate citizen we realize we have a responsibility to do whatever possible to reduce our carbon footprint and be conscious of the environment that we leave for the next generations. We began by replacing our petrol vehicles with diesel, and in 2016 we started a series of rooftop solar photovoltaic installations in each of our facilities. At present, we have a combined 60kW of solar panels installed across our Hobart, Launceston and Burnie workshops, generating renewable electricity and offsetting our consumption from the network.
We have also invested in work-management software to enable us to transition to a paperless work environment whereby we decreased our environmental impact. This has also allowed us automate our workflow processes, schedule work economically and increase our productivity. Today, all Howrah Plumbing team members manage their jobs via an iPad, capturing all work-related information, including photographs, Job Hazard Assessments and Safe Work Method Statements, in one centralised place.
Our recycling program ensures that all possible materials are recycled to minimize what ends up on the land fill. All paper, steel, iron, aluminium, brass and copper gets recycled.
We look forward to moving to electrical vehicles as soon they become available, and we are committed to continue to find practical ways in which to help conserve our environment and benefit the communities in which we work.
