Vince Johnson

I started my apprenticeship in plumbing and heating in 1975, since then I’ve had a very varied career including pipefitting, commercial boiler and catering repair. I’ve worked with Ideal for the past 13 years and enjoy passing on the experiences I’ve gained over the past 39 years. My strengths are in the commercial environment.

Nigel Hague

I find some boilers and renewable products have their own little quirks, therefore it can be a massive benefit to get trained regularly. I try to break things down as simple as possible to make them more understandable. My strengths are electrics and controls, domestic boiler range and solar thermal systems.

Scott Young

I have been working in the gas industry since I left school and I have been with Ideal since 2004. I’ve been part of the training department for the last 8 years and during that time I have met some fantastic people.  It’s great to be able to advise and pass on information which can help people in their day to day jobs. My strengths are with Ideals domestic boiler range & renewable products.

Colin Daly

Having worked for manufacturers and service providers over the years I have a solid and broad overview of the heating industry. I really enjoy working with new technologies and renewables so very interested in how the future will unfold.
