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.

  • "‘Many thanks for the recent installation. We are really happy with the final product, in addition, I’d like to also thank you for your follow-up care in ensuring everything was sealed and working once completed.’"

    Mr Ocone, Thornbury

  • "'Very pleased we made the call to Mathison's. You can be proud of the level of professionalism that Tom and Lewis showed throughout their time in our home. I am going to be more than happy to recommend Mathison's to friends and family'"

    Mr Thompson, Weston Super Mare

  • ""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”"

    Mrs Jansen, Shirehampton

  • "“Just want to say what a great service we received. The issue was identified very quickly and all my queries were answered knowledgeably. The installers were polite and efficient and best of all our showers are now working the best they ever have. Really pleased. Will use you again.”"

    Mr & Mrs Anderson, Portishead

  • "‘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

  • "“Just to say ‘Many Thanks’ for the work you carried out recently on our property, it is so much better. Thank you very much.”"

    Mr & Mrs Hughes, Weston Super Mare

  • "“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

  • "‘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

  • "'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'"
