Owner, Plumbing Troopers
The plumbing industry is undoubtedly male dominated, so it comes as no surprise to Lina Kurucz when clients enter her stylishly decorated office at Plumbing Troopers and ask if they can speak to the owner. She warmly replies with a smile and nods, “You are speaking to her right now! How may I help you?”
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from The Art Institute, Lina never imagined her career path would lead to overseeing clogged drains and leaking pipes. But two years ago, she took over the business previously started by her husband and brother in-law, and has experienced tremendous growth and gratification in its success. “Women are detail oriented, have high expectations and are usually the ones who call the plumber when things go wrong. So I came into the profession with the idea of changing the culture using a woman’s perspective, and our business grew tremendously from 2019 to 2020,” she says.
Lina attributes that success to the company’s core values, working culture, friendly customer service, creative marketing, state-of-the art technology and a field manager who meticulously trains the growing team.
“My goal is to serve my hometown community of Boca Raton and open a second location here. For a leak or clog, when you need re-piping, leak detection, water heater installation and all residential service needs, trust our reviews and call Plumbing Troopers. We’re all we’re ‘cracked’ up to be.” (Wink. Wink.)
