With two locations in Evanston, Wyoming and Ogden, Utah, Champion Services offers a complete line of electrical, plumbing, water treatment, and drain cleaning services as well. Owner and operator, Dwayne Willard and his staff, is ready to serve all your residential needs.
Willard's personal story begins at an early age while helping at his father's electrical business in Louisiana when he was 10 years old. In time, his dad took a position at Chevron Oil Company and was transferred to Wyoming while Willard, upon graduating high school, started working on an offshore oil rig in Louisiana. With much dedication, Willard worked his way up to being a derrickman and then was trained as a driller. “It was hard, challenging and dangerous work,” Willard mentioned in our exclusive interview with NYnewsyork.com, "but it taught me the importance of commitment to a job well-done." With time off from the oil rig, Willard drove to Wyoming to visit his father. He immediately fell in love with this spectacular part of the country while hiking and camping in the area. Not long after, he packed up his things and moved to Wyoming for good.
Despite never really expecting to go into the electrical business, Willard decided this would be the best direction to take to build his new life out west. After a four-year apprenticeship, Willard passed his journeyman test. He continued his studies to acquire his Master Electrical License for Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Colorado. He has since earned his general contractor’s license and HVAC Masters as well as a Plumber Masters license as well.
In 1999, Willard began working at his father-in-law’s plumbing business, Champion Services, a company founded in 1982. In 2009, Willard purchased the business from his father-in-law and has since expanded the services to include HVAC and electrical.
