I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Keith Myerscough to the Ontap Group Family. Keith has worked within the domestic gas industry since 1984 when he joined British gas as an apprentice in Worthing. During his time as an apprentice Keith was awarded apprentice of the year in his 2nd and 3rd years for the Sussex area. After successfully completing his apprenticeship he went on to complete an ONC in gas utilization and a supervisory & management coarse. Over the next 16 years working at British Gas, Keith developed a high standard of service and knowledge to progress to technician standard. After the de-merger of British Gas, Keith joined the service side of British Gas and continued to learn and progress, covering a vast range of gas boiler manufacturers appliances.
In 2000 Keith left British Gas to join an emerging new heating company, Quake Energy based in Worthing. With Quake Energy winning the contract to install boilers through the governments Warmfront scheme, Keith was made heating installations manager and was tasked to recruit new engineers to fill the contracts needs. During the next 10 years Quake Energy continued to grow to its peak of 25 engineers installing up to 45 boilers a week, to which Keith was responsible for the daily running of the business. His role included; surveying new installations, quality control of the work both post install and onsite with the engineers & dealing with and resolving customer complaints.During the first 2 years of the Warmfront scheme, Quake Energy was awarded install of the year and was consistently within the top 10 installers within the South East area.
Keith joined Plumbing On Tap in September 2012 as the heating operational manager and again has been tasked to grow the business into a major installer of heating boilers within the Brighton and Hove area whilst expanding to cover Sussex and beyond.
Keith is looking to bring his vast experience within the gas industry to help grow Plumbing On Tap into the premier boiler & heating installer and maintenance company in Brighton and Sussex, which should help us further strengthen our brand as a household name. – Elliott R.
