Banister’s Plumbing, Heating, Cooling – Now part of TLC Plumbing

Banister’s is happy to announce that we are now a part of TLC Plumbing & Utility. TLC Plumbing is a New Mexico company that has been in business since 1987. When Melvin Banister decided it was time for him to retire, he sold Banisters to Dale Armstrong and Ron Burnett – the owners of TLC. Melvin and Ron have been friends since 1977 when Ron lived in Carlsbad. Melvin and Ron built a friendship that lasted even after Ron moved away and joined the TLC in 1997. They remained in contact over the years since they were both operating similar businesses.

After 28 years, Melvin decided it was time to retire. He wanted to pass along his business to someone who shared his same values and dedication to his customers and employees. So, in 2012, Melvin sold Banisters to Dale and Ron, knowing that his customers and employees would be in good hands. They both are committed to honoring the culture that Melvin had built for his employees and customers.

Dale and Ron have been committed to keeping Banister’s a local Carlsbad service company. Over the years they have expanded Banister’s services to include plumbing for homes and businesses. This was in response to meet customers’ needs as well as an effort to provide more complete services for homeowners and businesses.

Banister’s Tradition to TLC:

Over the years, TLC has grown and expanded its footprint to include services across the state of New Mexico. After Dale and Ron added plumbing services to Banister’s services, it became clear that bringing Banisters into the TLC family made more and more sense. Dale and Ron found that the TLC name had become broader than just the Albuquerque area and reached more areas throughout New Mexico. Over the next 18 months, Banister’s image and processes will transition to match TLC. The community will notice more TLC branded trucks in Carlsbad, but customers can absolutely expect the same quality service they’ve come to know and expect from Banister’s.

Commitment to Quality Local Service

The owners of TLC remain committed to running the Carlsbad location as a local business. While the TLC brand is known statewide, they have always focused on being a quality, local service company. The Carlsbad office has local employees, uses local vendors, and is committed to contributing to the community of Carlsbad.
