OUR COMPANY
PEACE OF MIND FOR YOUR BOTTOM LINE
Hank’s Plumbing & Gasfitting Ltd. is a family-owned plumbing business in the Calgary area.

Hank’s Plumbing has been offering professional plumbing services to Calgarians since 1970, when the company was started by Hank Froese.
Hank retired in 1992, selling the company to his son Terry Froese who operated it successfully with his wife Sharon for 25 years. Hank passed away in February 2017 at the age of 89 years.

Michael & Glenda Edworthy, Terry’s brother-in-law and sister-in-law, purchased the company from Terry & Sharon in 2017. Michael Edworthy has been working as Hank’s Operations Manager since 2009. Michael continues to manage the company and embraces the same family values on which Hank Froese built the business.

Terry Froese also continues to work as a Journeyman Plumber at Hank’s, leading with innovation, experience and exceptional skill.
