The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC Ltd.) provides businesses with invaluable support and advice. Since 1925, our trade body has represented plumbers and heating contractors ranging from larger companies through to sole traders.
We know how hard it can be running a company in the current climate – you can often feel on your own. Financial difficulties, changes in the law, industrial alterations and other problems can mean a business becomes quickly overwhelmed.
Our aim is to work with you and represent you. As a member of APHC Ltd, you receive a number of benefits.
Seeking honest and reliable advice can be difficult as a company. You may need help with a range of different issues – perhaps you need any technical, health and safety, employment or industrial advice. You might have a question about hiring someone, maternity leave, sick pay or where you stand with redundancies.
APHC Ltd. can be your first port of call in this instance, allowing you to receive the right information when you need it.
You can also stay up to date with industry news with factsheets, advice guides, quarterly member magazines and regular e-bulletins.
You can also receive support in terms of finances. We can provide you as a member with various cost savings on a range of services.
This ranges from discounts on insurance, pensions, debt collection, fuel cards, MOTs, vehicle breakdown cover, loans, legal advice, card processing, gas notifications, training and more. This kind of support means you can run a professional business without the worry of financial stresses.
We can also advertise your services to consumers who are looking for honest workmen to complete projects for them. They come to us to look for the best – and we recommend companies that we know are professional and hard working.
APHC Ltd. works closely with the Government and leading industry bodies to protect and represent your interests. This might include in terms of legislation in the industry.
