The History of our sister company - Stamford Plumbing

Stamford Plumbing is celebrating 20 years of business and we’re looking back over the past couple of decades at how Ant’s ‘handy number’ advert in the Stamford Mercury in 1998 turned into the local plumbing empire it is today…

After a hugely successful career travelling the world to compete jet ski racing, Ant - who was 26 at the time - retired from the water sports and board shorts lifestyle after receiving his World Championship status, also closing his local jet ski hire business at Tallington Lakes after admitting it was time to find a “real job”.

Stamford Plumbing began as a small advert in the handy number section of the Stamford Mercury and Ant would spend his days playing on his PlayStation waiting for the phone to ring, before heading off to provide Stamford with his plumbing, heating and gas services.

After 15 years of that advert appearing in the local newspaper, today Ant now relies on Google searches, returning customers and recommendations for business from a fantastic reputation of renowned plumbing services in and around Stamford.

These days, the team at Stamford Plumbing don’t have time to wait for the phone to ring and play PlayStation! In fact, they have 4 incoming phone lines that never stop ringing and have a fleet of ten vans you’ll see around and about the town, there really is no time to sit still!

Ant says: “The 20 years have flown by and I would personally like to thank all our clients that have helped us reach this landmark. I for one am proud to work in and around Stamford and count myself fortunate to call this area home and look forward to the next 20 and all it throws at us!”

We would like to say a huge congratulations to our sister brand for 20 impressive years and would like to invite all customers - new and old - to join us to celebrate in style on 28th September to our joint open day of festivities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Stamford Plumbing.
