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.

  • "“We would like to thank you for your prompt and efficient service. The engineers who attended our house and carried out the work were excellent, very polite and a credit to your business, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them and your good selves. Thank you all.”"

    Mr & Mrs Marks, Nailsea

  • "'Thanks very much for the job that you did, we just wish everything would go as smoothly as our dealings with your company'"

    Mr & Mrs Banham, Portishead

  • "“I am absolutely delighted with the service received. Everything was explained very well and all seems to be working very smoothly. The two engineers were excellent and very professional. I will certainly recommend you to other people. The only thing I wasn’t too keen on was being called ‘Sir’ and referred to as a ‘Gentleman’! Not something I’m used to! Joking aside the level of service was a breath of fresh air having had problems for the last year or so. I wish I had got in touch sooner!”"

    Mr Hance, Portishead

  • "‘Thank you so much for all your help! Also thank you to the engineers who had to endure such cold work conditions yet still managed to remain cheery throughout, a credit to the company!’"

    Mr & Mrs Lindsey

  • "‘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 just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and your team at Mathison for your very positive approach to our enquiry this week. After a somewhat negative approach from the company we had used for the servicing of our old boiler when we had no hot water I am very pleased that my next call was to Mathison’s. I would particularly like to thank Tom and Lewis for the quality of the work they have done and for keeping me informed of progress. You can be proud of the level of professionalism they both showed throughout their time in our home. I am going to be more than happy to recommend Mathison’s to friends and family.”"
