Summer has just begun but the Fall school term will be here before you know it. If you are bringing on a new apprentice and enrolling him/her in Mechanical Skills you need to contact the school and get the ball rolling now! It takes time (and paperwork!) to get the apprentice licensed and enrolled in the program. Call (317) 352-1189 today. Take the first step that will lead to a licensed, professional journeyman on your team!

Bill Fite started his plumbing career at the age of 17 at Paul E. Smith Plumbing. He was encouraged to apply for a helper position by his Uncle Tim, and began to pursue his career as a licensed journeyman plumber soon after. His grandfather Edward Fite had established a plumbing company years before but the company did not survive after his grandfather passed away. Years later, the name “Fite Plumbing” was inspired by the original company his grandfather had established.
