Foreman Focus Friday: Steve Stocking

Dec 11, 2015 | Foreman Focus Friday


Plumbing! Did you know that plumbing is as much a part of Hermanson’s corporate DNA as HVAC? And great people like the talented and dedicated Steve Stocking represent the best in the Plumbing trade! Steve comes from a family of Plumbers. His grandfather joined Local 32 Plumbers in 1941, and Steve’s father, Vic, and uncle joined in the late 1950s. Steve grew up immersed in the trade so it was inevitable that he too would enter the profession. He has passed his devotion to his work on to his two sons, Andrew and Brady, making the Stocking family four generations of plumbers. Steve has worked on a wide variety of projects over the last 38 years. He specializes in Waste Water Treatment Plants and was Lead Foreman on the Westpoint WWTP in Seattle. Over the the last few years his focus has been on the installation of plumbing systems in new, downtown high-rise buildings including whole-life retirement communities, apartments, offices, and hotels. After almost four decades, Steve still has the same passion to provide top quality & efficiency and to be the best on every single project. Steve is currently working as the Plumbing Foreman on the Urban Union project. His hard work has gained the attention of the General Contractor on the project, Sellen. Ray DeForrest, Sellen’s Site Supervisor, recently remarked, “I would like to pass along our thanks for having Steve Stocking on the Urban Union project. He has been proactive, safe and a pleasure to work with. When he encounters a problem he brings it to us with solutions. He is a good man…” Steve’s work ethic ensures that his jobs are done correctly and that our clients are always satisfied with the results.
