Divine Inspiration: Truck of the Month Oct. 2002
St. Petersburg Plumbing took that comment a step farther -- they designed their company logo around it.
The Ford E250 van and its four brothers each feature St. Peter (wings, halo and all) holding pipe and wrench with the saying "We Work Miracles" underneath.
Customers have really responded to the logo, too. Several have remarked that the company really does what the logo says.
St. Peter's divine inspiration has helped in other ways as well.
"It worked great for our company," says Kelly Fehrenbach, secretary and wife of company president David J. Fehrenbach, who co-owns the 12-year-old Florida business with vice president Michael Schemera. "We wanted to branch into different areas, not just St. Petersburg. So 'St. Pete' gave us that option."
The three company vans and one box truck carry ladders and pipe on the roof, and the interior racks and bins hold sewer machines and anything else needed to complete a job.
St. Pete's Plumbing is growing. While it currently focuses on remodel and repair, the company is moving toward the service end of new construction. "We hope to add a new van as well as a new tech soon," says Fehrenbach. And hey, with St. Peter on its side, the company's success is inevitable.
