John Williams, co-founder of John Williams Heating Services
John set up John Williams Heating Services in 2004 after a successful career working as an employed heating engineer.
John had joined his previous employer after becoming an apprentice out of school and worked there for 19 happy years.
However, he made the momentous decision at the age of 36 to ‘go it alone’ and start a business of his own.
Working from the conservatory of his Wiltshire home, the fledgling business grew far quicker than he could have anticipated, with his wife Debbie carrying out essential administration and telephone answering tasks. After 15 months, he had to take on another engineer as he was being run ragged.
Soon another engineer followed, and the company moved into their first premises in 2011.
