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.

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."

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!’"

  • "“I love Mathison’s. Been using for years now both me and my parents and they are always on the job straight away, we had many problems with our boiler and Mathison’s is the only company to be able to solve it, my elderly mother also needed someone out quickly due to her heating breaking and it being very cold, they were on the job straight away and she is once again very happy, thank you! Anyone use for any problems very useful indeed.”"
