About GK History

Gareth Knell founded GK Plumbing & Heating in 1995. He joined a local plumbing and heating company aged 16, as an apprentice, and worked for them for 8 years, before deciding to go it alone.

In 2001, after a few years of working solo, he decided to expand the company and employ engineers. The business carried on in a similar vein until wife Kelly, joined the team in 2005.

They now operate and run the business together, with Kelly providing essential team support, both to the engineers and to the business as a whole. She is also the project manager and direct customer contact on all large installations, especially bathrooms.

During the 20 years GK Plumbing and Heating has been operating, the team have undertaken a large variety of different installations. From straightforward bathroom and boiler replacements; to larger domestic heating and bathroom installations; to several large commercial plumbing ventures.
