Keeping it Local: Heinz Mechanical

April 4, 2011

Matt, a local resident, has been a field supervisor for Heinz Mechanical for over 10 years. The company, a second-generation family owned business is located on St. Helens Road in Portland, will install the plumbing, heating and cooling system for the new school. Matt is currently laying pipe on the site for plumbing and, at the peak, the project will employ 12 plumbers, 8 sheet metal workers and electricians. For Matt, who has lived in Vernonia since 1999, it also means a three-minute commute to work! “Living on the Nehalem River, we basically had to rebuild our house. Friends and family really came through for us. Because we’ve got three school age children, I take special pride in working on the school they are going to attend. It’s pretty cool,” says Matt.
