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.

  • ""I wish to express my thanks to you as a company and especially to Mark and Kane for dealing so efficiently with the replacement of my 3 port valve. The procedure was achieved and completed without the need to drain the system as was the case previously. The airing cupboard was left clean and tidy. Most of all throughout their time here both Mark and Kane were reassuring, answered all my questions and left with everything in place. This was my first encounter with your company and I hope to contact you in the future and would recommend Mathisons to others”"

    Mr Vellazquez, Clifton

  • "“My oil boiler broke down during the worst snow storm we have had for many years and Mathison’s came out in a 4 x 4 to my property which is in a ‘hard to reach’ area.The engineer was able to repair my boiler within an hour of him arriving which was great as I have a new born baby and I was worried about the temperature in the house. Would 110% recommend them to anyone.”"

    Ms Lupton, Yatton

  • "'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'"
