About K J Cole Ltd

K J Cole Ltd is a family run business which has been trading for over 50 years. When Ken Cole left school he worked for R Mouldings & Co Ltd. After a few months started an apprenticeship to become a Plumber, after which became a fully qualified Registered Plumber.
After a few years he left Mouldings and with the help of his Wife (June) started working on his own. He then formed the company, K J Cole Ltd in 1965.
Ken grew the business from the ground up and quickly established K J Cole Ltd as a successful plumbing and heating service provider.

Robert Cole (Bob), Ken’s son was keen to join the family business. After completing his studies at the Trade School in Trowbridge, did his training with a well established, reputable Heating Company in Salisbury and in 1975 at the age of 20, started working for his Dad.
Over the next two decades father and son helped to grow the business significantly in the South of England, culminating in the purchase of a substantial premises in Fisherton Street, Salisbury.
This facility provided a showroom, office space, ample storage and customer parking. A fleet of 6 vans helped to service both commercial and domestic clients and the business went from strength to strength.
In 1995 Ken took a step back from the business and Robert took over the reins. A change of direction in the plumbing and heating services meant that there was no longer a need for a showroom. A shrewd re-location to a village on the outskirts of Salisbury in 2005 helped to reduce overheads and improve the service provided.
What makes K J Cole Ltd unique in today’s market place is the team that it employs. Robert Cole employs 5 loyal members of staff, most of which have been with the company for over 25 years:
