50 Years and Still Growing!
Pendergrass & Holder Plumbing is a company that goes back 60 years. The company first emerged in 1959 as Holder Plumbing — a small plumbing contracting business that focused mainly on residential new construction and repair. In 1998 Mr. Holder sold his business to Tony Billings and the company began operating as Billings and Holder Plumbing.
In 1999, the company was purchased by Butch Pendergrass. Butch has been in the industry since 1979 and operated as Pendergrass Plumbing since 1984. The business name was changed to its current name, Pendergrass & Holder Plumbing.
At that time, the company ran 4 trucks, 1 Bobcat and employed 7. Today, Butch, along with Chris Hicks and Neal Pendergrass, manage 2 service/repair trucks, 8 new construction trucks, 2 mini-excavators, Komatsu Skid Steer, Komatsu Excavator and Komatsu Mini Excavator.
We proudly employ licensed plumbing professionals with broad and deep experience. Our licensed and credentialed installation personnel can also perform turnkey medical gas delivery system installation in compliance with ASSE 6010 and NFPA99. We also have certified Backflow testers on staff as well as certified AET Solar Thermal Systems installers.
Pendergrass & Holder Plumbing was not an overnight success. Like any business attempting to grow and succeed, there have been highs and lows. "Every contractor has had difficult times," remarked Butch. "We are in an industry full of kind and supportive people. And without a couple of those people, and the Lord's blessing, we would not be where we are today."
Pendergrass & Holder Plumbing is active in the industry as well as the community. We are members of the Winston-Salem Mechanical Contractors Association and the Home Builders Association of Winston-Salem. We also sponsor the Mount Tabor High School Wrestling Team.
