The summer months may be traditionally quiet for heating engineers, but Corgi HomePlan is keeping its network of 5,000 engineers busy.
The boiler and heating cover company has revealed that the value of servicing and breakdown jobs carried out by its engineer network between May and August was £4.5m.
This will be a boost to the thousands of independent businesses that make up the Corgi HomePlan network, as they have guaranteed levels of work throughout the year.
The number of jobs carried out has increased after the network’s customer base jumped by 31% during 2014.
Director Kevin Treanor (pictured) said: “One of Corgi HomePlan’s key strengths is the expertise and trust of its nationwide independent engineer network.
“Customers like having someone local come on a callout, while for our engineers the volume of work we provide continues to grow significantly year on year with no sign of slowing down.
“Servicing and repairs during the traditionally quieter months are vital to a small business – I know because I used to work as a heating engineer myself. And because we pay our installer network within seven days, it’s an arrangement that works perfectly.”
