The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) is proud to introduce Andy Baxter as the newly appointed President of the Association. The inauguration ceremony took place recently at the 2023 InstallerSHOW, marking the beginning of a two-year term.
Andy’s journey in the industry spans over four decades, rooted in a family tradition of coal merchants. He commenced his career as an apprentice with British Gas in 1979, eventually establishing his own business, High Efficiency Heating (HEHUK), in 2004. Under his leadership, HEHUK has grown to serve over 10,000 customers and employs a dedicated team of 18 professionals.
Andy has already emphasised the need for improvements in new entrant training and apprenticeship programs and has stressed the importance of incentivising small businesses to invest in apprenticeship training. Additionally, Andy acknowledged the far-reaching implications of achieving net-zero targets and the challenges associated with transitioning to renewable technologies.
