My Father Terry

worked for the company for some years and throughout those years he built up a trusted and solid relationship with Mr Verrier of which led him to take over the company when he retired. After a while, my mother and father moved to Southborough, Tunbridge Wells Kent and carried the company on to do small plumbing Emergencies and gas work, after more qualifications Oil fired Central Heating was introduced under the OFTEC governing body and gas work with the CORGI registered Engineer scheme. With Various visits to major oil and gas boiler manufacturers factories and training centres, the business continued to grow.

Mum worked hard in the office building the foundations of our customer base, of which today consists of over 7000 regular local clients.
As a young Lad dad took me to work with him at the weekends and so from School I went to college and then started out working for him full time.
My younger brother Matthew followed suit and as the company grew a Partnership was formed. We continued to provide a good local Service and after time the accountants suggested we become a Limited Company.
