Tower Heating is a family-run business, established in 1990 by Neil Tomlinson and Steve Power. The pair met at Formby High School and after graduating, completed apprenticeships with British Gas. After gaining over a decade of experience, they decided the time was right to set up their own business and Tower Heating was born. The name Tower comes from an amalgamation of the two surnames and the partners built the brand over the years on a basis of reliability, considerate service and high-quality workmanship at a fair price.
Originally operating from an office at Steve's house in Ainsdale, the company grew, taking on and training apprentices until 1999 when the business moved to the current premises, an office and workshop on Liverpool Road in Formby.
As the company continued to build its reputation, the customer base grew and the workforce expanded to suit. This included Steve's son Lee, who completed his apprenticeship in 2003 and took over his Dad's role as partner in 2008.
Neil's two son's Greg and Stuart joined the business and in 2008 and 2010 respectively, gaining the requisite qualifications to achieve Gas Safe status.
In 2014 the three Tomlinsons became company directors as Tower Heating moved from a partnership business to a limited company, Tower Heating Ltd.
Tower Heating currently employs eight Gas Safe engineers, three apprentices and a secretary, but with plans to improve their level of service this may increase in the near future.
