Heritage and history of Yeoman (SW) Ltd

Yeoman (SW) Ltd are Gavin and Shaun Yeoman. They have been operating as Yeoman (SW) Ltd since 2014.

Gavin joined his father’s company in 2004. Already with City and Guilds qualifications in electronics servicing and after re-training to NVQ level at South Devon College, and then ACS qualifications at City College Plymouth, Gavin quickly took to Gas Boiler maintenance, fault finding and repair, in addition to Gas Central Heating and Boiler installation and design. Gavin became company Director in 2008, shortly after bringing Shaun on board. Shaun completed the team in 2007 from a background in Art and Design, Shaun also attained an NVQ at South Devon College, ACS qualifications at City College Plymouth and swiftly proved proficient in Gas Central heating installation, design, serving and repair, and it was his influence that then expanded the company’s portfolio into the growing renewable energy market, primarily Air Source, Solar Thermal and Solid fuel. Shaun became Director in 2013.

Gavin and Shaun had already implemented big changes within the company with more emphasis on Renewable Energies and larger, exciting construction projects, in addition to the Gas Central Heating service they already provided for home owners. Then, critical to the evolution of the company, and to reflect the new target market the company was re-branded to Yeoman (SW) Ltd in October 2014.

Today Gavin and Shaun run the business side of things with a team of terrific installers each trained (or in training) to NVQ level 3 at South Devon College.
