About Us

You deserve to work with
a plumber who cares.

Since our start in 2009, we’ve made it our goal to provide plumbing services that are not only prompt and reliable, but also smart, sustainable, and honest. We take great pride in the fact that each one of our plumbers are licensed and committed to ongoing training, regardless of our experience level.

A locally-owned and operated company.

Over the years, we have made it a priority to views our clients as neighbors, friends, and fellow Montanans, aiming to provide them not only with reliable essential services, but also a sense of shared community.

We absolutely love being part of the greater Gallatin Valley community and strive to contribute positively by donating to local organizations, supporting local businesses, and taking the time to educate our clients on how to keep their boilers and appliances in tip-top shape throughout the year.

We look forward to meeting you!

August Ore

Master Plumber

Born on Montana’s highline, August grew up in Pony and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Montana before beginning his plumbing career in 1996. He became a Master Plumber in 2008 and founded McGuffey’s in 2009. With a focus on service and repair work, August has years of experience working with all types of plumbing and heating systems, and is a licensed Montana Boiler Operator. August provides the team with philosophy, moral support, and backup when necessary. When he’s not working with clients directly, August spends his time playing music, chopping wood, spending time with family, and enjoying the great Montana outdoors.

Adam Walker

Master Plumber

Born and raised in Belgrade, MT, Adam began working as an apprentice plumber right after completing high school in 2003, initially focusing on service work and renovations, then later moving on to a focus on new construction and heating installation. Currently, Adam plays an instrumental role for McGuffey’s as the team’s visionary, teacher, project manager, estimator, and scheduler. In the plumbing and construction world, there is not much that Adam can’t do. When not working, he can be found in the outdoors with his wife and two daughters (probably fishing).

Garret Buchanan

Journeyman Plumber

Garret was raised in the Gallatin Valley, attended college at the University of Montana, and moved back to the valley to begin his career in plumbing in 2015. Garret brings to the McGuffey team a sharp eye for the truth and razor sharp wit while also taking on the difficult work of new construction. In the summer, he spends his weekends and free time working in his garden and wandering the woods with his tiny dog. In the winter, when not on a job site, he can be found at Bridger Bowl striving valiantly to keep up with his wife.

Jon Taylor

Apprentice Plumber

Born and raised in northeastern Nevada, Jon moved to Montana in 2016 after completing high school and working in various trades throughout the West. In 2018, he began his plumbing apprenticeship with McGuffey’s. Jon is the multi-talented glue and grit of our team that keeps Mcguffy’s running smoothly, all the while with a grin on his face. When he’s not working, studying his plumbing coursework or climbing the foothills of Nepal, he enjoys reading a good book.
