THE PLUMBER’ is a family owned and operated business based in Hastings, Hawkes Bay. It is run by Jamie Blakely, a certified Plumber & Gasfitter. Jamie’s industry experience spans from project managing large teams in big city commercial builds to small residential and maintenance work. After the arrival of his family’s third child it was time to leave the big city life to provide a provincial upbringing for their young family. Hence in early 2014 ‘THE PLUMBER’ was established, and is now servicing the Hawke’s Bay region with plumbing, gas and heating solutions.

Integrity is the word that sums up Jamie; personally and professionally. I experienced a range of plumbing problems caused by shoddy workmanship and Jamie spent hours diagnosing and solving the complex plumbing issues. Based in Havelock, he offers prompt efficient service and is young enough for all the physical work if required. I recommend him unreservedly and I am happy to be contacted personally for verification if necessary.
