Hey there, I’m Chris and together with Matt the Director and Jack the apprentice we make up Kassgas. Firstly thank you for stopping by and giving my first business blog a read. I’m definitely no writing whizz but everyone’s got to start somewhere right?
So whats happening in our little world? Well, loads actually! Having now finally got this website to a good enough standard to publish we are starting to look deeper into how to show up on popular searches for the services that we offer. Something that I’ve found to be both complicated and time-consuming but I’m getting there. One thing I will say is that SEO which stands for Search Engine Optimisation takes time, no matter what changes you make to your website sometimes it can take many months or even years before you see major results.
Matt is currently covering most of our hands-on work at the moment whilst I’m away in New Zealand and doing a fantastic job of it. Our phone continues to ring more and more often as the weeks go by with many boiler services, gas cooker installations and a fair few boiler installations keeping him and Jack busy.
We have training days booked in with Ideal boilers, Worcester Bosch and Vaillant over the summer to ensure our knowledge of the biggest boiler manufacturers is industry-leading. During these training days which I myself have attended at least once a year for the last 5 years, we are taught about any installation regulations that may have changed as well as updated on any new technologies that each manufacturer is releasing.
Jack our apprentice and Matts brother is currently hard at work revising (I hope) for his gas exam which he is hoping to take in Autumn. He attends all boiler installations and as many smaller jobs he can as well as working full time and revising for his exams.
Sarah covers some of our behind the scenes work including contacting customers, arranging quotations and telling Matt when and where he needs to be next and she manages to do all this around her full time job. Sarah’s main job as a nurse takes up most of her week but she still finds time to help us with the techy bits, give me a set of tools and I’m happy, a keyboard not so much!
Finally, I’m working away for Kassgas in New Zealand at the minute covering business development and also assisting with customer queries, emails and many office tasks whilst travelling this beautiful country.
