About us


Our team

Everyone needs a plumber once in a while. When you do, it pays to get the best you can. If you live in the South Lakes area you can rely on the Magennis Plumbing & Heating Ltd team to get the job done, and to do it well. 

One of the benefits of being a long-standing and family-run business is that we have had years to build up a fantastic team. The team is overseen by Billy and his wife, Karen. They took over the reins from founder and Billy’s older brother, Mike, who still works in the business. The family trio is supported by a mix of qualified employees, sub-contractors, and an apprentice.

Your local Lake District plumbing and heating company

We guarantee a friendly and professional service. If you are looking for a local company with a skilled and experienced team, then look no further. Every team member shares our commitment to a good, honest appraisal of what’s needed to complete the task to the highest standard, without inflating the cost.

Billy regularly meets with contractors and customers but still gets his hands dirty too. Mike is enjoying his fifth decade in the plumbing business. Anthony (known as Root) is an old-school plumber with a wealth of experience, and Ben has worked with us since he was a schoolboy and is now fully qualified. Karen brings her previous clerical experience to the office and keeps it all running smoothly, and Grant concentrates on boiler installations and commissioning central heating systems. Reece is now in his 3rd year as an Apprentice, studying for his Oil and Gas qualifications. Extended team members also help with larger projects and during periods of high demand for our services.

Whichever team member(s) you meet, you can be sure of friendly professionalism.

We’re passionate:

It’s our family name on the van and we’re driving around our own community.
