DENVER — Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric has been named one of the Denver Post’s Top Workplaces for 2012.

“Since I opened the doors, it has always been my goal to provide a working environment that is challenging, respectful, and recognizes employee talent,” said John Ward, president of Applewood. “We strive each day to ensure our customers get the best service and internally we strive to ensure our employees have every opportunity to provide for their families.”

Applewood, which has served the Denver/Boulder metro area for more than 39 years, has more than 100 employees and more than 60 service trucks on the road daily to service customers with plumbing, heating, and electric needs. Ward believes high standards and expectations attract top trade professionals to the company, which has seen growth in business annually for the past five years.

“It takes more than knowing how to fix a plumbing leak,” he said. “It takes understanding the customer, their problems, and coming up with a solution. That’s how our technicians work and why we’re able to offer such incredible service.”

Employees receive full benefits coverage for themselves and their family, competitive hourly wages, staff training, appreciation programs including days out at Colorado Rockies games, and holiday gatherings. The business maintains structure and processes to support employees with updated technology, comfortable working environments, and fully-equipped trucks and warehouse access to fulfill customer requests.
