The Plumbing Industry
It is estimated that there are 120,000 registered plumbers in the UK, but the housing crisis that followed the 2008 banking crash saw a shortage of qualified plumbers, and the profession gained an almost niche status and rapid popularity on the back of this.
Today plumbing is a highly regulated industry, with big companies offering a comprehensive range of services and plumbing taking a central role in initiatives to save energy and promote renewable technologies. As a result, plumbing is highly marketable from one-man-bands to SME organisations.
Designing For Plumbing Brands
Our experience in plumbing branding and design often involves specialist services, such as heating, ventilation and water treatment, but the same marketing principles apply even if you are a regular plumber fitting domestic kitchens and bathrooms.
Plumbers need to be professional and trustworthy and logos and branding are important because they can carry a message which is seen whilst people are at work, on vans and uniforms as well as literature and stationery. With plumbing also being so highly regulated, branding needs to reflect the importance of accreditations, so it needs to be powerful and visible.
Make your mark with strong branding and design for your plumbing business.

Top Tips For Plumbing Brands
Shout about your specialism.
If you have a specialist qualification or skill, then make sure people know about it. Plumbing logos often incorporate taps or water, so make your logo stand out, if you can, with what is special about you.
Make it professional.
It is very easy to cut costs and go for basic branding, but this can look inferior and be off-putting. Plumbing services don’t come cheap, so don’t make it look like they do. Instead, build a brand that promotes your focus, drive and attention-to-detail.
Show off your Green credentials.
Many businesses are working towards becoming carbon neutral so if you can help with that, make a big deal of it. Environmental technologies are a growing industry so promote the fact you are at the forefront of it.
