Like many contractors who own their businesses, Matt Fleming of All Star Plumbing & Heating in Manasquan, N.J., wishes he could spend more time in the field and less time in front of a computer. “Quite often, I’m stuck at a desk doing paperwork, but getting my hands dirty assembling and installing is what I really like to do,” he said.
Matt, who recently took over the family business from his father, uses Viega press because it’s fast, clean and dependable. “We can get jobs done much faster and it’s on to the next job – and that’s the whole point,” he said. The 22-year veteran has the same advice for those thinking of entering the trades and contractors thinking of starting their own businesses: “You get out of it what you put into it. If you stay focused and dedicated and constantly improve, you’ll succeed.”
