Chris began his plumbing career behind the desk at Galvin’s in Busselton 15 years ago. This allowed him to gain an understanding of all the tools and products available in the industry, as well as engaging with the general public and trades on a daily basis, refining his customer service skills. It was here he realised his passion lay beyond the desk and he began and completed his plumbing apprenticeship with Johnson & Co. in Perth. Maintenance and Commercial fit out plumbing were his fortay whilst working in Perth and he experienced all sorts of jobs, from housing and commercial properties, to hospitals and the airport.
In 2010, Chris and his wife Lauren decided a ‘sea-change’ was in order and decided to move down to Margaret River. Within the first few weeks of moving down, Chris landed on his feet with work when Mick Willmott offered him a job. It would be here, that Chris’ plumbing skills really maturated. Under the wing of Willmott Plumbing, Chris was able to advance his residential and commercial plumbing skills and focus on an extremely high standard of quality and technique. It also allowed him to experience the behind-the-scenes work of what the Margaret River Region is all about – Wineries and Breweries!
In 2013, Chris completed his studies, giving him the qualifications he needed to become a Licensed Plumbing Contractor. At the beginning of 2016, now with two young children, Chris and Lauren decided that it was time to go out on their own and begin to foster a future that their growing family could be a part of. So here we are!!
