Martin Warnes Plumber of the Year Winner

The 2019 competition saw over 400 plumbers enter from across the country, with Martin taking the top spot, including a £15,000 prize.
A plumber since 2007, Martin started out as a local apprentice and became self-employed in 2009 as the owner of M L Warnes Plumbing & Gas Services. Since then he has expanded his business bringing on four more plumbers, two kitchen fitters, three office staff and a kitchen designer onto the team.

Commenting on his new Bristan products, Martin said: “I am delighted to have won the competition and I can’t actually believe that a plumber from such a small seaside town could actually win. For the sponsors donating the prizes, I think it’s absolutely great, and they have been amazingly generous.

“I will look forward to using the new sink and boiling water tap in my own home, as we are having a new kitchen fitted after Christmas. Thank you everyone at Bristan again so much.”

Claire Jennings, Head of Marketing at Bristan, said: “We’re so pleased for Martin, on winning Plumber of the Year 2019. His dedication to the industry and achievements have been fantastic.

“We can’t wait to see Martin’s new kitchen in the new year!”
