About Us

Gold Seal Mechanical, Inc. was founded in 1967 by Robert E. Dixon, Sr. and Richard L. Dixon as a plumbing company dedicated to taking care of their clients’ plumbing needs. Richard Dixon continues today as president and CEO of the company.

While Bob Sr. would have delighted in seeing his great grandsons develop as licensed journeyman plumbers, he would have taken as much pleasure in the quality, integrity, dedication and teamwork of the plumbers, trainees and support staff that is Gold Seal Mechanical, Inc. and Gold Seal Plumbing.

Becoming the largest open plumbing shop in Eastern Washington was never a goal…but we are. Becoming the largest service plumbing operation between Seattle and Minneapolis was never a goal…but we are. Having the largest company training budget for trade skills in Washington State was a dream, and we made it happen!

Gold Seal Mechanical, Inc. is licensed to plumb in Washington, Idaho and Montana and have experts qualified in:

  • Backflow testing and repair
  • Radon mitigation design and installation
  • Medical gas piping
  • Natural gas piping, all classes
  • On demand water heater design and repair
  • Specialty pipe installation
  • Solar systems
  • Hydro jetting sewers 

Although Gold Seal plumbs more bathrooms than any plumber in the area, the staff is skilled in so much more: box stores, grocery stores, restaurants, strip malls, churches, parking garages, commercial tenant improvement, dental and vet clinics, office buildings, and breweries.

JoAnn Dixon is second vice-president and is office manager and confidential advisor to the president.

Third-generation plumber Chris Dixon is company vice-president and heads the new residential section and maintains the industry contacts so important to continuing Gold Seal’s leadership position.

The key commercial team is led by another third-generation plumber, Robert Dixon. Robert, who is also corporate secretary-treasurer, leads the largest division with the help of his well-trained staff.

Doug Stanley completes the field leadership group by heading the area’s largest service team. With more than 25 trucks handling problems from water quality to plugged drains, bathroom fixture replacement to emergency leak repair, and from gas piping to sewer hydro jetting, Doug ensures his journeymen plumbers receive the continual training to serve his clients.

Vivian Kelly, CPA, is the company CFO and heads the support staff that takes care of our employees as well as our clients. Vivian brings a masters degree in accounting as well as a very real and deep concern for the human element of the employees.

All of our employees subscribe to our creed:

To provide the best service

To all of our clients
