THE HISTORY OF HPE: THE MOVE TO WEST FILLMORE STREET

March 13, 2019

In February and March of 2019, HPE is taking a look back at the origins of Heating & Plumbing Engineers and the family behind the legacy!

Heating & Plumbing Engineers, Inc. was founded on February 21st, 1947 -- but the history behind the business goes back quite a bit further.

PHOTO #7: This image contains a great 1955 article about HPE's move from our first location on Tejon Street in Colorado Springs, to our new (and present) location at 407 W. Fillmore Street! The move came after 4.5 months of construction on the 10,000 sq. ft. building -- which housed a new warehouse, office, and machine shop complex including a plumbing shop and a large sheet metal shop.

HPE's team moved into the building just three months before our 10th anniversary; it was a welcome change for our space-constrained organization as before this, we had to lease warehouse space in multiple locations around town, knock out wall after wall in the Tejon Street office to create more space, and even lease a parking lot to house our fleet of 30 trucks.
