A Letter From Howard White

As we mark the significant milestone of 50 years, we are thrilled to embark on a journey down memory lane, sharing the rich history that has shaped our company. This dedicated historical account unveils the remarkable story of our inception, tracing the roots of our vision and highlighting the pivotal milestones that have contributed to our success over the years. Join us in celebrating the legacy of L B White and the enduring commitment that has defined our journey through half a century of excellence.

1970
Founded on a legacy of dedication, expertise, and a commitment to serving your heating and cooling needs. As the owner and operator of L B White, I am honored to share our story with you, as it's a tale that spans decades and generations.

L B White was born in from the vision and hard work of Leslie Barrie White, fondly known as Barrie to all who knew him. In 1960, Barrie embarked on an apprenticeship journey with Lawrence B. Woodley and in 1970 he lay the foundation for our company's enduring success. His passion for the craft and his unwavering determination set the stage for what would become a remarkable family tradition.
1983
Following my father's footsteps I began my apprenticeship in 1983 and immediately took the reins of the Rheem service, a responsibility I executed with exceptional skill and dedication. My deep understanding of heating systems and his commitment to delivering unparalleled service earned us at L B White a reputation as a true industry experts. This legacy of excellence was further nurtured by my fathers genuine care for every client he served.
1995
Personally, I had the privilege of working alongside my father for three decades, imbibing his values, knowledge, and work ethic. Those years were a source of tremendous growth for me, and they laid the groundwork for the transition I undertook with great honor. This immersive education not only refined my technical skills but also nurtured a profound understanding of the essence of quality service and the importance of fostering strong client relationships.
2010
When Barrie retired in 2010, I stepped into the role of guiding L B White, an enterprise that had become not just a business, but a symbol of our family's commitment to quality and integrity. My mother Colleen White still to this day keeps an interest in the runnings of L B White.

At L B White, we stand on the shoulders of our history. We are a team dedicated to upholding the standards set by Barrie and to continuing the legacy he forged. Our commitment to excellence, reliability, and innovation remains unwavering. We understand that your trust in us is a privilege, and we take that trust seriously in every project we undertake.
2023
As we move forward, we bring with us the values that have defined L B White from the beginning: expertise born of experience, a deep sense of responsibility to our customers, and the assurance that when you choose L B White, you're choosing a legacy of quality and service.

Thank you for considering for your heating and cooling and general plumbing needs. We look forward to serving you and continuing the journey that began over five decades ago.
