It’s all of us below who make the glorious WPJ team. Our philosophy is that in order to provide the absolute top quality of workmanship in our industry we need exceptional people. We aim to employ highly skilled, committed and motivated people, with a passion for their trade.
Our fleet of tradesmen includes gas engineers, plumbers, a drainage and pressure jetting team, multi-trade bathroom fitters, electricians and decorators. And of course we’re always looking towards tomorrow – we have 6 young apprentices who are learning important new skills as they strive to become members of our professional team.
“There’s nothing like the soft purr of a nicely burning boiler” says Will. And so grew his passion for the wonderful world of London’s plumbing. Lives in Tooting with Gemma, Eadie & Harry. Dreams of playing a round of golf with Rory McIlroy but has been recommended more lessons first. Ahem. Not sure if that’s really needed.

Adrian has been in this trade for 40 years and his experience adds tremendous value to WPJ in supporting the operatives with technical questions and provide guidance for our customer base.

Having worked as a shop fitter for many years, he has all of the skills to run with a job from start to finish.
Billy Collett has worked for some big companies in his employment history.

Steve is a family man, running around after his 3 girls. When not plumbing, he is often found seeking out the most frightening roller coaster ride in the world.
Seb loves boilers, accumulators and unvented cylinders. He’s a wiz with a blow torch, and takes great pride in ensuring his pipework is neat and clean, removing all the flux from the pipes afterwards so they shine.
Kevin is the keenest snowboarder in the team. If he’s not installing boilers, then he can be found on the slopes in the Alps, or sometimes further afield. He is keen to learn the more intricate parts of the trade too.
Stephen has been working in the trade as a gas engineer for over 10 years and has brought in a wealth of experience. In his spare time he enjoys keeping fit with interests in MMA, running, boxing and Judo.

Alec Amos has been interested and involved in plumbing since he left school, as the trade suits him down to a T.

In his free time Alec likes going to ice skating and go on country walks with his dog.
