About Fox & Co

Hello, my name is Michael and I have, in one form or another, been in the business for more than 30 years and have always been involved in property maintenance in one form or another.

At present we have interests ranging from property acquisitions, development & management of properties, lettings, seaside holiday lets, property maintenance, plumbing, gas & central heating works, washing machine repairs and most household jobs, big or small.

Established in 1977, as a one man business in Primrose Hill, North London, Fox & Co (1998) is now a well established Plumbing & Heating company covering the North London areas.  We have been based in Muswell Hill for the past 25 years. 

Fox & Co remains a small family concern. Small enough to 'care' and large enough to respond to "on demand" service.  Our aim is to give customers a prompt, quality service at a very competitive price.  Whether it's a dripping tap, new bathroom, broken down boiler or any associated works, we are always happy to help and advise and we try to ensure all calls are answered in person, but occasionally, it may be necessary to leave a message, text, or email me.

Michael of Fox & Co was educated at a public boarding school in Epping Forest, Essex and originally began my working life, suited and booted in a central London office intending to train as an accountant, but he soon tired of office work and after a brief period of trying a number of different jobs including diamond ring cutter, salesman, book-keeper, clerk and labourer, settled into the life of a self-employed tradesman, first becoming a handyman, then a painter and decorator, followed by plumber and finally becoming a Gas Safe qualified and  registered engineer.

Michael has lived in Muswell Hill since 1987 with his Australian partner, Sally Fox, who is actively involved with the local church and local schools and various societies.  They have three children aged 20, 18 and 14.

Michael's interests include digital photography, apple computers, gadgets, big boys toys, diy, foreign travel, foreign films, people watching and architecture and of late, producing a raft of small, work related websites in order to boost my online presence and enhance my search engine rankings.

Michael is qualified to work on boilers, water heaters, gas fires, gas cookers and Unvented Hot water cylinders as well as all bathroom and shower works. He also undertake work on all Saniflo macerators.

Michael attends manufacturers training programs in order to keep up to date with the changing technology and have recently attended courses at Worcester, Vaillant, Baxi-Potterton, Ariston and Honeywell training centres in order to compliment his knowledge on condensing boiler installations and servicing, unvented hot water cylinder servicing, central heating controls, energy efficiency and boiler repairs.  Upcoming courses will include solar technology and electric boilers. 

Gas Engineers have to successfully retake their exams every 5 years in order to continue working. Michael re-passed all his re-assessment exams successfully in March 2012, which consisted of both written and practical examinations over the course of six gruelling, stressful days!  Michael is once again re-qualified and registered to work on gas boilers, gas pipe work, gas water heaters, gas cookers, gas fires, flue-less catalytic gas fires and unvented hot water cylinders.

Hopefully, now you know a bit about him and his company, you’ll make use of his services!
