In October 2017, 10 years after settling in Cranbrook with his family, Uwe Pallas opened Pallas Plumbing Works. The German-born-and-trained tradesman brought years of training and experience with him when he arrived in Canada in 2004. Having toured Canada in a motorhome in the course of six or seven visits, Pallas knew he wanted to settle in the southeast corner of B.C., and Cranbrook offered his family the best amenities. Further work experience here acquainted him with the community. Pallas provides plumbing, heating, and gas fitting and repair services for new construction, renovation projects and emergency situations.
