About Mickie Service Company
Water Line Service Company
www.mickieservice.com went live in 2007. We have added lots of content to the website since then, but, the site itself has remained pretty much the same. In 2020, we realized that a complete re-do was required. The world has changed a lot - more than half of our traffic comes from mobile devices. Our website was designed for the PC/ Web Browser world - we had to change. This change reflects much of what we have recently undertaken - across the board we are leveraging the enormous advances in technology, communications, and engineering/testing to streamline and standardize our processes and to enable substantial efficiency gains and installation success. All these process changes have helped make us a more efficient and effective partner; however, in the end - our values and operating principles have remained unchanged since our founding more than 40 years ago.
Mickie Service was started in Houston, TX in the mid-1970’s by Lee Gregory, one of the leaders of the Houston civil construction industry. At the time, Mickie Service business was water main construction, water main repairs, hot taps and meter installation. In addition to being a great entrepreneur, Lee Gregory had a super eye for finding exceptional employees. He hired Elaine (who knows more about hot taps in the greater Houston area than anyone else – hands down), Kenny, Joe D, Willie, Popcorn, Jose, and John – (the guys who made all those taps – and, for Jose, still are making taps today!). In the mid-90’s, Lee sold the business to James Moheet who brought a strong engineering background and an excellent reputation with the City of Houston. For the next decade, the business continued to thrive by offering unparalleled service and expertise. When Mickie Service came to the construction site – everyone knew the tap was going to be made – right.
