about heinz mechanical serving Portland OR Vancouver WAHeinz Mechanical Industries, Inc. has thrived since 1983 as a locally-owned company serving Oregon and Southwest Washington. We are third-generation owned and operated and are proud to provide our customers with an extensive knowledge of plumbing and mechanical systems.

At Heinz we have built an impeccable reputation based on our business practices, the quality of our workmanship, and the success of our employees and team members on every project.

Heinz Plumbing began over 30 years ago under the guidance of Heinz Bosch. He was born in Schweinfurt, Germany and apprenticed and succeeded in the plumbing and sheet metal trade in Germany. Bosch moved to Portland in 1956 and served as  a union member for over 50 years in what is currently Local 290 Plumbers & Steamfitters.

Our project teams are made up of hard-working industry veterans with an average tenure of 15+ years.

The Heinz Mechanical Industries team provides full mechanical construction services. This includes pre-construction and design services. We specialize in healthcare, education K-12, higher education, institutional, commercial, hydroelectric, and government projects. 

Heinz Mechanical Industries is committed to sustainable building practices to ensure premium efficiency and consumption of the products we provide and install.

We minimize waste and evaluate operations to ensure they are running as efficiently as possible.

This includes managing systems and procedures specifically designed to minimize the use of hazardous materials, energy and other natural resources in order to minimize the generation of waste and to enable the recycling and repurposing of materials.

We will continually seek opportunities to improve our environmental performance.

We do this by establishing objectives and targets, and measuring progress–this included monitoring energy, water, paper and fuel consumption and vehicle miles traveled.

We promote participation and communicate our commitment to responsible environmental practices.

This is achieved by advocating environmental responsibility among our employees, suppliers, and our customers. We provide the necessary training and support to enable them to implement this policy.
