On November 18th CEO William Smith announced his plans to retire from Albina Pipe Bending Co., Inc. after 43 years of service.

William Smith officially passes the torch to his son Brian Smith, the current CFO and General Manager of Albina Pipe Bending Co., on January 1st, 2009.

In the official letter announcing his departure from the family business Smith proclaimed “With Brian at the helm, I am confident the company is in excellent hands”.

Smith’s easy manner and penchant for outstanding customer service have long been the hallmark of Albina Pipe Bending Company. Customer satisfaction and community service are just a few of the values he has imparted in those lucky enough to have worked with him over the years.

William Smith’s contributions, not only to Albina Pipe Bending Co. but to the community at large, will endure as he continues to share his leadership skills as a mentor and youth advocate for non-profit organizations such as Junior Achievement and CASA.
