Hanson's Plumbing and Heating

Hanson’s Plumbing & Heating dates back to the early 1930s, when Henry Hanson founded a hardware store in Vergas, Minnesota. He opened the family business to serve the needs of his neighbors, and was known around town as Hardware Hank. As company ownership transitioned from father to son, we opened a second location in nearby Perham and expanded our business to HVAC and plumbing installations, repairs, and maintenance.
