Brighter Mechanical is British Columbia’s largest mechanical re-piping company. Brighter was founded in 1988 by Ray and Donna Wilde and from humble beginnings, over two generations, grew to approximately 100 staff and the leading reputation in its industry. Noverra acquired the company from second Generation Owner, Bob Vincent (Son-in-Law of the Company Founders) and his business partner, Ted McDowell, in 2012.

Brighter is the leading company in British Columbia focused on retro-fitting domestic water, heating, drainage,and fire-sprinkler piping within existing tenanted buildings. Brighter re-pipes approximately 2000 homes per year and enjoys an industry-leading reputation and market share.

The senior management team at Brighter Mechanical remained unchanged after Noverra acquired the company with transitioning owners Bob Vincent and Ted McDowell remaining in the business for an agreed period. During this time, Rick Clare who led field operations was developed internally and became the President of Brighter Mechanical in 2017. Rick is responsible for the full scope of operations and overall management of the Brighter Mechanical business.
