Hero Plumbing, LLC was founded by Rashawn Spivey on June 2, 2010 and is based in Milwaukee, WI. Rashawn brings to Hero a strong resume with 20 years experience in residential plumbing, commercial plumbing and industrial plumbing. He began his career at age 12, as an assistant at Jim Nelson Plumbing. Noticing his interest in the trade, Mr. Nelson mentored Rashawn teaching him practical skills, dedication and work-ethic. By age 16, Rashawn was making basic service and repair calls on his own.
After graduating from Milwaukee Marshall High School, Rashawn entered the Preparatory Plumbing Program at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). He completed the program and was awarded an apprenticeship through Plumbers Local 75 Trade Union.
There he was exposed to more complex projects across the industry’s three main sectors. Supervisors placed strong emphasis on quality workmanship and the value of continuing classroom education in plumbing theory, design, and installation.
Rashawn obtained his Journeyman Plumber and Master Plumber licenses with the State of Wisconsin and has worked on several major industrial plumbing projects, including the WE Energies Oak Creek generating station – the largest single industrial project in state history ($2.2 billion) – which pumps over 800,000 gallons of water per minute and is the most thermally efficient generating power plant in Wisconsin. Rashawn is also a certified welder – a rare combination in the plumbing industry, and one that is especially valuable in industrial plumbing and municipal water service work.
