WHERE WE'RE FROM
RPI Plumbing & Fire was built from the ground up by owner Ryan Jouppe and was legally named Ryan's Plumbing Inc(RPI). Ryan was born and raised in Hancock, Michigan and moved to the Vancouver area when he was 19. In 1995, Ryan was working for another plumbing company and started working evenings and off hours doing small plumbing jobs bringing along his wife and young daughter. The next year he left his former employer to start out on his own. When, in 1999, a client asked that Ryan complete a fire sprinkler system along with the plumbing system he had already been hired for, Ryan accepted and started completing fire sprinklers along with his plumbing. Since then Ryan's Plumbing has been specializing in both fire sprinkler and plumbing systems and earned its name RPI Plumbing & Fire.
