About Us

Mathison PPHB Ltd was founded by Ian Mathison in 1981. Having spent his working life up until this point in the marine engineering industry, Ian made a decision to start his own business. Providing employment for the local area and offering high levels of service to local residents has always been and continues to be very important to Ian and the company. Having felt that there was always a certain stigma associated with the industry, Ian looked to change this by providing customers with a professional and personal service whilst providing excellent standards to the new growth of heating installation in UK domestic homes.

Since the formation of the company, Mathison’s has offered apprenticeships to many local engineers and to this day continues to do so. These apprenticeships are very highly sought after due to the outstanding reputation locally for providing a strong apprenticeship programme with successful candidates being mentored and trained by our highly skilled and experienced engineers. Many of the engineers that have over the years successfully completed their training with us have either remained with the company, some for many years, or have gone on to build very successful independent careers.

In 1982, just one year after the formation of the company, Mathison’s became one of the first gas installation companies to become Corgi Gas Safe registered although this did not become mandatory until 1991. The company is now, as well as continuing to be Gas Safe registered, fully NICEIC and OFTEC registered.

Over 35 years later Ian and his wife Rita remain an integral part of the company whilst their son Jason now manages the day to day running with the help of a strong, dedicated management team.

    Mrs Moores, Clevedon

  • "'I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to your company and particularly your engineers who worked long days without any major breaks to get the boiler working despite terrible weather conditions. You have a good team and they are a credit to your company'"

    Mr Hammacott, Nailsea

    Mrs Ballard, Portishead

  • "‘I was extremely impressed with their professionalism, consideration, and minimum of fuss from putting sheets down, clearing and vacuuming everything at the end, to even rinsing their mugs in the sink! Personally, I have been very impressed by your company’s level of service such as your quick response and short waiting times from the initial check of our boiler to the new one being installed."

    Mr Oaten, Clevedon

    Mr Thompson, Weston Super Mare

  • "‘We would just like to thank you for your prompt service in arranging our new boiler to be installed, it works amazingly!’"

    Mr & Mrs Lindsey

  • "'Thank you for the boiler service you did for us last week, Tom was extremely courteous and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for him to look at and sort. We had another issue that he spent some time looking at but rather than try to make more money out of us he instead advised us to contact a specialist engineer. And when he gave us the invoice he didn't charge us for the additional work, only the service. A real credit to your company, you should be extremely proud of him and I would recommend him to anyone'"

    Mr Iles, Yatton
