In 2003, with a background of plumbing and heating qualifications and experience - John started J.Wheatley Gas, Plumbing & Heating Ltd and after 10 years of working solo, his son Lewis started a plumbing apprenticeship to follow in his fathers footsteps. Once Lewis became fully qualified, together he and John continued with their reputable status across the East Coast.
In June 2016, John's daughter Charlotte graduated from the University of Chester and jumped on board with the family business. With perfect timing, a small office space became available in Hunmanby and the three of them set down their roots, giving customers an opportunity to book appointments face to face and view a small range of displays.
The Wheatley's were overwhelmed with the amount of publicity this little office space gave them and in less than a year, was able to expand again, this time into a much larger premises. Having this multitude of space meant they could now feature 16 bays, all full of bathroom suites, tiles, flooring, wet board panels and boilers for the local public's viewing pleasure. It also opened up many opportunities for exclusive brands and bespoke furniture ranges.
Within one year, the family business expanded so much so, that John’s wife Wendy works alongside Charlotte in the office, John and Lewis have been joined by Gas Engineer Callum and Bathroom installer Michael, later followed by two plumbing apprentices Alan and Adam who are extremely close to finishing their final year and reaching their qualifications.
And that brings us just about up to date.
