A building is only as strong as its foundation. Similarly, a business is only as good as those who work it -the employees. Motivated, hard-working people make businesses prosperous, increase its longevity as well as productivity.

At Hines Plumbing, Inc the group that makes up the foundation of the business is one that anyone would be proud to call their team. Small but mighty, four people make up the crew that work under Jack Hines, owner of Hines Plumbing, Inc. Let me introduce you to them.

Mark Manatrey, Plumbing Service Technician – Mark has been with the company for about 2 ½ years and he does most of the repair work that comes to Hines Plumbing. The work that he does is usually a solo gig and that proves his competency. He's been in the industry for many years and tie that together with his good nature and you won't find a more amiable and able plumber anywhere else.

“I love the people I work with and the customers that I encounter,” Mark said. “And Jack is great. He's easy to get along with and he likes that I can work so independently.”

Sig Morgan, Plumber – Sig has been with Hines for years. Before coming to Hines Plumbing Sig did maintenance work for McDaniel Fire Systems. He does lots of remodeling and installation work including showers, bathtubs, floor work, etc. He's a hard working and humble man who enjoys what he does for a living.

“I like working here. There is something new to do everyday,” Sig said. “And I’ve known Jack since he was about two feet high. He's a good man.”

Jesse Morgan, Plumber – Jesse has worked for Hines Plumbing for the last 6 years. He came to Hines Plumbing from McDaniel Fire Systems just as his father (Sig) did. And like his dad, he is friendly and talented in his trade. His tasks include but aren't limited to: remodeling, installations, service work, and new and old constructions.

“I grew up with Jack's family and I have a knack for what I do here,” Jesse said. “I like working here. [Jack] trusts me and lets me do my job, which isn't common in a boss. He has confidence that I’ll do my job to the best of my abilities.”

Kristin Hengstler, Office Manager – Kristin makes sure that things in office run smoothly. Before coming to Hines she worked as a manager for Pacific Sunwear at the Lighthouse Place. Her competent and kind attitude puts customers at ease and with a splash of sassiness keeps her male coworkers on their toes.

“I love working here. I love the people I work with,” Kristin said. “Working for Jack is always fun and exciting. I've known him for a long time and he's a good boss.”

“I love my crew. They are responsible and they come in and do their job everyday. They earn their paycheck each and every day.” Jack said in regards to his staff. “They are all good people above and beyond everything else.”
