Richard Taylor began the business in 1976 and it remains a family-run business working throughout Lincolnshire today.

Richard trained and worked for Shellmex/BP for many years working all over Lincolnshire. When he started his own Oil equipment Service business in 1976 he went into partnership with his wife Patricia who helped with the administration.

As the business grew, two more engineers joined, working with Richard.

Sadly, Richard passed away in 2009 but the family rallied round and the company employs 6 fully-qualified engineers with the day to day running covered by Carla and Simon in the office with Patricia taking a more back seat position.

The Engineers

Chief Engineer Andrew Ellerby first trained with us in 1985 and is fully qualified to OFTEC standards. Being a local man he knows the area well and has worked on many thousands of boilers throughout the county.

Andy has more recently been helping with training up our newer members of the team and can sometimes be heard answering the phones to customers.

Roger Newton joined us in 1999 and has considerable experience on many boilers. He is fully qualified to OFTEC standards and knows the regulations inside out.

Daniel Ellerby, nephew of Andrew, was recruited in 2007, learning from the experience of his fellow workers and gaining full OFTEC qualifications. He has also plays an important part in training up new engineers.

Mark Gale has now joined the merry band and is rapidly proving to be an asset to the business. He has completed his training and has OFTEC registration.

Matt Palmer is our fully qualified plumber and is mostly working on the new aspect of our business, Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pumps which is proving very popular.

If you have an oil tank installed, then you will most likely meet Neil Reader, who is working on that side of things nowadays.

The engineers work together, discussing new innovations and problem solving ideas.

We are also pleased to be able to offer full oil boiler central heating system installation. This comprehensive, professional and competitive service is headed up by our resident plumber, Will Watson, supported by our other engineers as required.Oftec
