Anniversary marked


Komar Anchor Plumbing and Drain Service, a local full-service residential and commercial plumbing contractor, celebrates the one-year anniversary of the company’s merger.

Anchor Plumbing purchased Komar Plumbing in December 2016, merging the two companies to form Komar Anchor Plumbing & Drain Service. Komar Plumbing had been in business for 53 years when the owner decided to retire. Many long-term employees of Komar Plumbing stayed with the company through the merger and still remain employees.
