Institute / association
The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) is a not-for-profit trade body for the plumbing and heating industry in England and Wales. We have been a plumbers association since 1925 and represent large plumbing and heating companies working on commercial projects, to sole traders working in domestic properties.
Being a member of APHC distinguishes professional plumbers and heating contractors from the rogue traders. As an association we are committed to helping plumbers and heating contractors run professional and profitable businesses, whilst ensuring consumers have better standards of workmanship and service.
We work closely with key organisations such as Government, Local Authorities, Training Bodies and Consumer Organisations to ensure that best practice in the industry is promoted and that quality plumbing and heating contractors are fairly represented.
We are a source of knowledge, professional advice and support for members and consumers.
Our core objectives:
- To provide plumbing and heating contractors with support and cost saving benefits, allowing them to run professional and profitable businesses. Find out more about advice and support for plumbers.
- To encourage training and best practice within the industry, providing consumers with the reassurance of quality workmanship and service.
