About Us

Licensed Plumber Bairnsdale

Gudge’s Plumbing opened its doors for business way back in 2001 as a licensed plumber Bairnsdale residents can rely on. And, for the last 20+ years, we have been catering to the needs of homeowners, business owners, and commercial property owners located in and around Bairnsdale and its surrounding areas, with our reliable plumbing services.

Gudge’s Plumbing is a family-owned and operated business firmly entrenched in the heart of East Gippsland at Bairnsdale.

Glenn Gudgin attended school in Lakes Entrance and Bairnsdale. When he left school, he apprenticed in 1989 with Mark Wangman, a Lakes Entrance plumber.

Gudge’s Plumbing was established in 2001 when Glenn struck out full time on his own. Like most new business owners, the notion of working for himself and gaining independence and flexibility drove Glenn to become his own boss.

While there are numerous plumbers in East Gippsland, Glenn felt that if he stuck to the basics and offered a quality service where he attended to customers promptly and was reliable, then he had every chance of doing well.

Over the years as a licensed plumber in Bairnsdale, our mantra of “quality, prompt and reliable” has been our backbone for success.

Today, the business remains very much a family operation with Glenn and his wife Renae, guiding the small team. A local focus backed by local knowledge ensures that customers all throughout East Gippsland and the surrounding areas are well supported.

We’re relatively small and very agile but, because of our years of knowledge, skills, and experience, we have become the go-to master plumber Bairnsdale property owners depend on. Our strength is that we are just the right size to provide timely and prompt service. Our team has four highly skilled and experienced licensed plumbers in Bairnsdale. We also have apprentices working with us which is our way of helping provide jobs for locals in our area and helping create a more prosperous future for our community and our region as a whole.
