Fox & Co have, in one form or another, been in business for more than 30 years and have always been involved in
property maintenance. At present we have
interests ranging from property acquisitions, development & management of properties, property
maintenance, plumbing, central heating and most household jobs, big or small.
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 area and resident in Muswell Hill for the past 25 years.
A Family Firm,
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 the customer
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. We try to ensure all calls are answered
personally, but occasionally it may be necessary to call one of
the mobile numbers.
