Meet the Team

group-photo-2.jpgEvery member of our plumbing team is time served. We don't employ anyone who is not up to the job. Even so, we are committed to training in order to stay up to date with modern technology as well as changes in industry regulations.

Michael Magennis

I started plumbing as a school leaver over 45 years ago & haven't looked back since. Running a growing business means having to put your hand to administration as well as plumbing. I try to get out of the office & get my hands dirty as often as possible.

Check out the rest of my team below.



Antony "Root" Dugdale


I have been working for Michael for over 30 years. I am an old-school plumber, spending most of my time paired with our female plumber Hannah. The knowledge I hold is more than any book or training course could teach. I can turn my hand to all aspects of plumbing from connecting a washing machine to fitting solar-panel powered heating systems & underfloor heating.


William "Billy" Magennis


I am Michael's younger brother & one of the longest standing members of staff. I have been working with Michael for over 30 years. I am keen to learn new techniques & keep my qualifications up to date. I am a big believer in the idea that you are never to young or old to learn. I spend time working alongside the apprentices, always striving to learn new things whilst teaching them. My qualifications range from gas to oil.

I am the youngest member of staff. I started with Michael from a very young age, joining the team on a work placement basis whilst still at school. Once leaving school I joined Kendal Collage to study for my plumbing qualifications. I have completed the first two years of plumbing. I'm now moving on to do my last two years studying at Kendal Collage and working alongside Michael.
