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.

  • "“The service I was overally pleased with, when fitting our boiler on an emergency call, they left no mess and was done very professionally and prices were outstanding. I would recommend to anyone, will definitely be an ongoing customer. Thank you!”"

    Ms Alexander, Bristol

  • "“I’ve used Mathison’s for a couple of years now as they came to my rescue as was let down and brushed off by other (7!!) local independent plumbers during a boiler emergency. Mathison’s service has always been the most professional, punctual and superior against its competitors. I will now only use them for all my plumbing and heating needs. Very easy to book an appointment online, can pay over the phone with a card at the end of the appointment and I’ve always felt safe in my home with their guys when they were carrying out their work on my boiler. They’re worth every penny.”"

    Mrs Samuel, Portishead

  • "“I’ve previously used Mathison’s for my plumbing works but didn’t know they had electricians. I asked them to quote for a re-wire and when they came the guys were very professional, punctual and quick, they also laid down sheets and tidied up every day. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anybody. I’d use them again for anything in the future.”"

    Mr Brixton, Bristol

  • "‘Just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone about the stellar experience we had with Mathisons. They came out right away, did a great job and took care of all the aesthetic work. I was hugely impressed with the extra work they did to make everything look nice. If anyone is in need of a plumber they did an amazing job, were pleasant to work with and kept us very well informed throughout the whole process. I’d recommend them to anyone who needs work done!’"

    Mr & Mrs Hoy, 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

  • "“Value for money and friendly.”"

    Mrs James, Portishead

  • "‘We are very pleased with the service you provided. The engineer was very polite and worked tidily, carefully and swiftly.’"

    Mrs Kite, Nailsea

    Mr Callaway, Wells

  • "“May I say how impressed I have been with everyone who has been with us over the past two days. Jeremy was excellent, going the extra mile to make the job very neat and tidy. Please pass on my thanks for their courteous and helpful manner.”"
