My name is Ricky Cox, and the woman you see next to me in the pictures is my beautiful wife Kary Cox. Kary and I are the joint owners of the company; I wanted to take a moment to tell you about us, our lives, and our values.
I am a Tampa native and I have always had the dream of owning my own business. In high school, I was in the top 10% of my graduating class. I chose a career in plumbing because it was something that none of my classmates were looking into, and it offered a fast track to entrepreneurship. In 2012 I attended the Plumbing Tech course at Erwin Technical College. For the last 7 years I have worked in the field doing all aspects of plumbing, from custom homes to service and remodels. In February of 2019 I passed the State Master Plumber Exam (scoring a 91%) and joining the ranks of Master Plumbers across the state of Florida.
Kary and I married in January of 2018. Kary is from Quito, Ecuador – and I knew I wanted to marry her the day I met her. We became friends through one of our mutual friends, and our courtship became formal when I flew down to Ecuador to meet her family. I fell in love with the simple way of life in Ecuador. When she came to the United States to visit her sister and niece, I proposed, and the rest is history. Kary and I enjoy going to the gym, spending lazy afternoons on the beach, and kayaking down Florida’s many rivers and springs.
Mike is an apprentice and enjoys learning the trade day in and day out.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and why they call us “The Plumbers You Can Trust!”
