Richard Brown set up his Plumbing and heating business in around 1987. His Corgi (now Gas safe) registration is a very low number (7855) showing he was always ahead of the crowd – registering before it was a statutory requirement. He also began specialising in ‘new fangled’ technology like underfloor heating around 20 years ago. At a time when many companies are just beginning to install heat pumps Richard has already been working in this area since 2007. Most of Richard’s passions in life involve water. On Sundays during the summer months he can usually be found racing his dinghy off Gorleston. He loves his garden pond with goldfish and when Norfolk is not suffering from drought has a working well in the garden which he dug himself. Richard also likes to share his passion for sailing by teaching Sea Scouts to sail.
