Local plumber hits industry milestone
Since 1886 the Register of Plumbers has been helping to protect the public from poor plumbing work. Now it has reached a very special milestone with the 70,000th Registered Plumber (RP), Sam Demeza, from Newmarket, welcomed into its revered ranks.
Introduced and maintained to help raise plumbing industry standards in the public interest, the RP designation has been a means by which consumers have been able to identify highly skilled practitioners ever since.
70,000th Registered Plumber Sam, managing director of Bentley Mechanical Services, is a lifelong member of the plumbing industry, working his way up from being on the tools, after originally being an apprentice at the company under its founder, Stuart Bentley.
Sam joined the ranks of Registered Plumber, after attaining membership of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering (CIPHE), the only professional body for the plumbing and heating industry. CIPHE Members are all vetted for qualifications and experience and only those hitting the CIPHE’s strict criteria can be entered onto the Register of Plumbers.
Sam is proud to have made the cut, saying, "It was quite a surprise to find out that I was the 70,000th Registered Plumber, but it’s a title I'll happily wear with pride. Bentley Mechanical Services only employ skilled and experienced personnel, who are committed to providing workmanship at the highest of standards. The ethos of professionalism is core to what we do and what we stand for, so attaining CIPHE membership and Registered Plumber status was really important to me. I feel it only enhances our commitment to quality, and that gives us the edge over other contractors."
