I am Matthew Fitzpatrick, owner of MJF Gas Heating and Plumbing.
I started my business up nearly 2 years ago and I have not looked back, I have 5 years’ experience working with companies and 2 years as a sole trader so 7 in total.
I am a proud ex-soldier who used his resettlement to become a plumber/gas engineer. I am also a dad of 3 young children and married for nearly 8 years. They are the main reason I went self-employed, so I could have flexible working hours for school runs etc.
The work I undertake is everything from garden taps to full central heating systems. Using my wide variety of skills in the trade, my time as a soldier, the knowledge I learned at college and the experience on-site learning my trade, I have become a very competent engineer. I pride myself on great communication with my customers and I always remain professional and leave the area I have been working on as clean and tidy as I found it.
