Cabby Plumbers on the road to success

It was only last week when we published an article on how three plumbing students launched their own company called 'Cabby Plumbers'.

The driven trio continue their journey to the top as they have featured in the latest edition of Heating and Plumbing Monthly.

Business has been picking up as their awareness within the trade is being noticed throughout the industry. Take a read of the article HPM has put up below:

Three London cab drivers have swapped picking up passengers on the streets of London to plumb work, with the help of construction training providers Able Skills.

Tony Cook, Marc Hawney and Jamie Capon all finished their City and Guilds Accredited Level Two Plumbing Course training with Able Skills, an accredited training centre delivering qualifications from City & Guilds, EAL, CITB and BPEC amongst others.

The reason for switching life in the cab to working in the plumbing industry was all three had concerns about the direction the industry was going in. So they decided to retrain.

Now qualified, all three will now undertake gas training, also at Able Skills later in the year, which will enable the Cabby Plumbers to offer even more to their growing list of customers.

Tony said: “Myself & Marc had been friends for a number of years and it was at Able Skills we met Jamie. All three of us seem to click straight away and that’s when the idea of the Cabby Plumbers was born. People want tradesman who can do a good job and who they can trust. We believe that people already trust a London Cabby and that’s what will help us build the brand.”

We continue to keep a close relationship with Cabby Plumbers and are very excited for where they’re headed.

If you can envisage yourself changing your career and setting up a plumbing business like these guys did, the City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing Studies is the place to start.

Once again, well done guys!
