- About Us -

William J. Riley Plumbing & Heating Co., Inc. was founded in April 1977 by William J. Riley.
Bill started the business out of his home and eventually moved it to his garage.

Working on very large condominium projects with over 25 employees helped establish Riley Plumbing in the plumbing industry. As the new construction market died, Riley Plumbing scaled back its work force and worked on more Industrial and Commercial work.

In 1987 the shop moved from the garage to 205 Hallene Rd. In the Fall of 1993 the company made a strong shift into the service and repair market as the industry slowly recovered from the banking crisis of the early Nineties. There was no new construction in the area, therefore the change was essential and at the same time FLAT RATE PRICING was introduced. In the Fall of 1999 the shop moved from Hallene Rd. one block to 22 Dewey Ave. It was a downsizing that was a long time in coming. The move was very quick and allowed for better management.

This is where we remain today working with family everyday. Elizabeth, Bill and Corinne’s daughter joined the business temporarily in 1988 and has never left. She now serves as office manger and our “ Girl Friday”. She’s the one you usually talk to when you call and she knows many of you by name and address.

Michael Riley has worked here on and off since he was in high school. He returned back in 2002 serving now as our certified backflow tester and purchasing agent.

Mike Muzzy has worked in the Rhode Island plumbing and heating field for over 20 years, He is a licensed journeyman plumber and pipefitter. Mike also has over 10 years experience working for two of New England’s largest supply house company’s as inside sales, outside sales, commercial /industrial job estimator and ultimately as a branch manager. He has returned as Our Company Supervisor, Job Estimator, and Technical Support to assist and direct our qualified technicians in the field.

As for more family...the grandchildren, Michaela & Robert help out working behind the scenes when help is needed in filing our many invoices, or assisting in loading and unloading our extensive inventory in and out of the shop and service vehicles..

Serving the Industry

Since starting the company in 1977 Bill and his wife Corinne have been very active in the Rhode Island Association of Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors. Bill has been an officer in the local PHCC and served a three year term in a National capacity as Zone One Director on the Board of Directors for the National PHCC Association in the Nineties. He is also a member of QSC and is also active in many other organizations that strive to improve the Plumbing & Heating Industries. Early in the year 2000 Bill was appointed to the RI State Apprenticeship Committee. In January 2001 he was appointed the RI Plumbing Board of Examiners and continues to serve in those positions today. Corinne became the National PHCC Woman's Auxiliary Treasurer serving for four years and held many positions at the National and state levels. Today Corinne is the State Executive officer for the RIPHCC striving to better the plumbing and heating industry here in RI. Bill now also serves as the treasurer for the RI Backflow Preventer Association which works in RI to better education people about cross contamination of our water supply. They continue to travel the country learning more about the industry, sharing ideas and developing professional relationships. They have traveled to Washington DC for the past 15 years to the PHCC Leadership and Legislative conference to meet with RI congressmen to discuss legislative matters that affect our industry and business practices working for the betterment of all. They have truly done the leg work to help their industry!
