MINSTER — Gagel Plumbing and Heating in Minster has changed ownership after 50 years in business, as owner Don Gagel cuts back his hours in an attempt to eventually retire.
Gagel sold the business to Jason Buettner, owner of Fischer Plumbing and Heating in Delphos. Gagel said he plans to cut back from 50 to 30 hours per week while training a store manager.
In retirement, he plans to travel and play more golf, he said.
“When you’re in this line of work, there’s a real workaholic syndrome,” Gagel said.
