Peter Laurent Owner of Eveready Plumbing

Congratulations to Peter Laurent, owner of Eveready Plumbing, and his team who are this year celebrating an impressive 30 years in operation – no easy feat for any business. It’s an opportunity for Southern Plumbing to celebrate too because we’ve been working with Eveready Plumbing since the beginning.

“This is a significant milestone for Eveready Plumbing,” says Warwick Beutler, Managing Director Southern Plumbing Plus. “It’s a privilege to have worked with Peter and his staff and family over the years. Together we’ve celebrated many personal and professional milestones and this year is no exception. We thank you for your loyalty and we look forward to many more years to come.”

Eveready Plumbing first became a customer in 1988.  Peter says, “We've worked with Southern Plumbing since the beginning. We are certainly a part of the Southern family and share similar values of putting our customers first.”

Eveready Plumbing pride themselves on delivering quality service within their customers’ budget. “We offer 24/7 plumbing services just as we have done for 30 years now. Our talented plumbers are friendly, respectable and highly trained,” says Peter.

There have been many noteworthy moments over the years including taking on new staff, celebrating staff achievements, growing the business and changes to the industry. This year Eveready Plumbing also celebrates employee Dane Buckley being with the company for 20 years. “To recognise Dane’s dedication and to share such a significant company milestone is truly special,” shares Peter.

Three decades on and the Canberra-based plumber still provides quality plumbing, with the addition of new technologies and product advancements as the difference. Peter shares that the biggest change to the industry has been the introduction of the EZIPRESS system.  EZIPRESS provides a comprehensive press fit system for copper tube suitable for water, gas and solar applications. 

“We used to have to weld the pipes but the EZIPRESS systems allow us to press the pipe fittings, making it safer and saving us time to get on with the job.”

Patrick Read, Commercial Manager Plumbing, who recently celebrated his 20 year anniversary with Southern Plumbing Plus, commenced his plumbing apprenticeship with Peter in 1991. “I’m fortunate to have worked with Peter for all these years both as an employee and now as a supplier,” says Patrick. “He’s been a good mate to myself and Southern Plumbing Plus and to celebrate 30 years with him is an honour.”

If you bump into one of the familiar faces of the Eveready Plumbing team, stop and say “congratulations” should you feel the inclination. Thirty years in business is a big milestone and continues to reflect the strength and collaboration of Canberra’s plumbing and construction community of which we’re proud to belong.
