Growing to meet demand.

Pimlico Plumbers keeps on growing

Published:  02 March, 2010

LONDON: Pimlico Plumbers plans to expand its workforce by 25% throughout 2010. The move to add to its 165-strong workforce will help meet growing demand for its services, the company stated.

Pimlico Plumbers handles between 1800 and 2000 jobs a week, and is receiving many more enquiries from new customers in the Greater London area.

Managing director Charlie Mullins said: "Whether it's our reputation or the tough economy that is affecting other plumbing firms, our services are definitely more in demand."

Pimlico Plumbers is backing the Repairing Britain campaign to lower VAT on property repairs and maintenance to help secure employment in construction and building services.

The campaign, which is funded and spearheaded by Rok and supported by a number of leading industry organisations, is calling on the Government to reduce VAT on property repairs to 5%.
