Our Story

Plumbing & Gas Works has been around in the Waikato since the beginning of the century and was originally known as Plumbing Works.  Back then it had 8 employees; it’s since grown with a team of 24 now.

You’ll find Plumbing & Gas Works different to most other plumbing, gas fitting and drain laying companies.  Five of our employees are shareholders; this means they’ve got a vested interest in making sure they impress our clients… 

They know that if they don’t, they’ve got to answer to the other shareholders and employees.  Of course their pride won’t let this happen; our team is committed to doing their absolute best. All the time, not just when the inspectors looking.

So what else makes Plumbing & Gas Works stand out from the rest…?

For starters, we hire for positive attitude and top skills: as we’ve said, we’re committed to providing outstanding service when it comes to things plumbing, gas fitting and drain laying.

We strive for excellence in everything we do: ‘near enough’ doesn’t equal ‘good enough’ and we’re right into having the Plumbing & Gas Works team always doing a first class job. 

We’re where service begins!
