Pimlico Plumbers, the London company founded by Charlie Mullins in 1979, has been bought by Neighborly, a home service brand franchise.
Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Neighborly, says: “Pimlico’s wide array of trade services as well as its exceptional customer care perfectly align with Neighborly’s purpose, which is to build an extensive service community known for providing excellent experiences. We are excited for the growth to come for both Pimlico and Neighborly as a result of this acquisition.”
Pimlico’s president and CEO Scott Mullins says: “Neighborly is well respected across the globe as the driving force behind so many reputable brands in the home service and maintenance industry.
“We’ve found a like-minded company that can help us grow. This marks a major international milestone for both organisations, and I am excited about the continued innovation and prosperity that is sure to follow for us all.”
Scott Mullins will remain in role: his father Charlie has stepped down as the owner of Pimlico.
Pimlico’s services include heating, plumbing, bathrooms, drainage, and electrics and it carries out more than 100,000 jobs in central London every year.
