Protech - Gas Fireplaces

Our History

We started out doing all types of plumbing, gasfitting and heating jobs.

In 1975 Rick Kirkland (the owner) started apprenticing in plumbing and gas in the Calgary area. He has been a gasfitter in Calgary for 40 years, in business 33 years in Calgary and has been doing gas fireplaces installations in Calgary for over 25 years.

In 1982 Rick started a plumbing business RK Mechanical.
After incorporating in 1982 he changed the name to Protech Plumbing Inc.

Around 1988 we started contracting to Atco Gas doing gas lines, gas fireplaces, garage heaters, gas ranges, barbecue lines, dryers. Around this time we also started doing all the gas work for the major fireplace retailer in Calgary.
We started to focus mainly just on the gas side of the business getting away from the plumbing side, because it just made sense to specialize in the one area, as we figured we had efficient systems in place for running gas lines.
It is impossible for a plumbing truck to be set up as well as our trucks are for gas, and it is just too much to have everything required for plumbing and trying to add what you need for gas lines.
We now have three first class gasfitters on staff.
