Savage and Son 125th Anniversary Celebration


When Nevada’s Oldest Contractor with Nevada Contractor’s License #10 turns 125 years old, celebrations are in order. We are honored to have planned the public awareness campaign  and celebration for Savage and Son’s 125th anniversary in business. The campaign started in June with an employee kick-off event and continued on through the summer with a series of television commercials highlighting their plumbing, HVAC and piping work throughout their history in northern Nevada, focusing on some of the iconic buildings Savage and Son has played a role in building. Our campaign also included public relations and social media. Then on Wednesday, September 26, over 500 people attended Savage and Son’s 125th Anniversary Celebration at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Governor Brian Sandoval delivered a heart-warming speech during the program that paid tribute to the business and the five generations of family members that have served our community for the last 125 years. In addition, the Savage family presented a check to the historic Fourth Ward School in Virginia City to pay homage to the city where their family business started over 125 years ago.  Press Coverage – KOLO8 News  and check out the Savage and Son Commercial Spot
