Foreman Focus Friday: Travis Getts

Mar 17, 2017 | Foreman Focus Friday

At age 18, Travis Getts was facing down one of life’s greatest existential questions. HVAC or Plumbing?

Not long after being confronted with this decision, he had a lucky encounter with a Local 32 Plumber which helped seal the deal. By 20, he started residential plumbing work and at 22 he joined the Union and served a 5-year apprenticeship. For 17 years now, Travis has been a proud plumber, the last 10 of which have been with Hermanson.

And we are lucky to have him! Travis has a tremendous amount of passion for quality, cleanliness, and execution. This philosophy exudes Hermanson’s “Character Counts” core value.

Clients First, another Hermanson core value, is also a huge priority for Travis and this shines no brighter than in his work with MultiCare. He’s an expert with not only plumbing, but also medical gas. With Travis’ help and the expert skills of all our Southend plumbers and pipe fitters, MultiCare uses Hermanson as their preferred mechanical contractor.

In his own words: “Hermanson has given me the platform to assist in growing talent, contribute to a team-focused approach, and have input in all things associated with the greater good.”

Travis has been married for nearly 13 years to his wife Heather Getts and together they have three children, Tyler (16), Makena (11) and Bryson (7). The Getts family also has fun-loving labradoodle named Jax.

Travis, you are an exemplary employee. We’re proud to have you in the Hermanson family!


Travis is a family man through and through. When he’s not at work, he’s at play. Travis loves playing slow-pitch softball and coaching his kids’ sports teams.
