Dartford-based heating and plumbing specialist GSCI Ltd has joined forces with leading UK home assistance provider HomeServe to launch a new ‘HomeServe North Kent’ franchise.
GCSI Ltd, which employs nine staff and provides commercial heating and plumbing services across North Kent, will now offer boiler installations and gas-related heating services to residential Customers across the region through the HomeServe North Kent brand.
Commercial work will continue under the GCSI Ltd name but services offered to local homeowners across the region will be branded as HomeServe North Kent. The new partnership is part of HomeServe’s ambitious plan to increase the share of domestic boiler installations and repair services across South East England.
“We’re thrilled to be joining the HomeServe family at what is an incredibly exciting time for our business”, said Grenville Clay, Managing Director of GCSI Ltd. “Combining our team of locally-based, highly skilled engineers with HomeServe’s nationwide network of specialist engineers and rich home assistance experience means we’ll collectively be able to help even more local people, installing new boilers and providing heating services throughout the region. We’re really looking forward to what we can achieve together.”
GCSI Ltd joins an established network of HomeServe franchise businesses based across the UK, including the North West, Midlands, London and Yorkshire.
Richard Shepherd, Chief Operating Officer, HomeServe, said; “The creation of this new partnership to form HomeServe North Kent is an important step forward as we look to expand our franchisees across the UK to offer increased boiler installations and heating services.
“HomeServe North Kent will help provide effortless service to our Customers across the region, through our combined local, specialist skilled engineer networks.“
HomeServe North Kent will provide services including boiler installations, boiler servicing, boiler repairs, emergency boiler repairs, power flushing, appliance services and smart thermostat installations. To celebrate the launch of the franchise, new Customers can get two years servicing worth £144 with any new boiler installation completed on or before 30th April 2016.
