About Us

A P Plumbing

A.P. Plumbing & Gasfitting Ltd was founded by Andrew Palmer in 1996. He is a Certifying Plumber, Gasfitter and Drainlayer with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. Andrew is passionate about our industry and training the next generation of tradesman. This is reflected by his membership of the New Zealand Master Plumbers Society where he has been a member for ten years, served as President for four years and is currently Vice President. It is also reflected in his policy of employing new apprentices whenever possible. Andrew has even travelled as far as the Chatham Islands to supervise training there


We have serviced the Whanganui and Central Plateau areas since the company started in 1996, initially focussing on residential and occasional commercial work. In 2011 we set up a temporary Christchurch branch and worked on the post-earthquake rebuild

In 2013 Andrew decided to expand our range of services and we started working on large commercial and civil contracts all around New Zealand, starting with new BP Service Station builds in the North and South Islands and Prison expansions in Turangi and Wanganui. Recently we have completed the New Zealand International Commercial Pilot Academy and the Victoria Avenue Retail Redevelopment in Wanganui.

Locally we are currently working on the Wanganui Collegiate School Administration and Library projects and we have completed a year-long program of work on the Whanganui Wastewater Treatment Plant project.

Our latest contract is the Wellington International Airport Rydges Hotel Project for Arrow International, where we have recently won an award for Health & Safety
