About

Steiner Plumbing & Heating: 40 years serving the Parkland

Steiner Plumbing & Heating Ltd. started in 1979 by Jim and Trudy Steiner out of a shop on their acreage, and one van.

It has grown over the years to 13 full-time employees that cover the entire Parkland region.

Jim and Trudy retired in 2017 and handed over the reins to their daughter Carla and her husband Chris who currently operate the company along with over a dozen full time staff.

Steiner Plumbing & Heating Ltd. is proud to be a community minded organization that regularly supports many worthy organizations in the Parkland region.

He holds his ‘A’ gas ticket and is a great community supporter.

His passion is hockey, and hits the ice at least 5 times a week with the ‘Noon-Hour Hockey League’ and the Dauphin Kinks Old Timers.
