G&M History

We have been trading for nearly two decades. In that time, we have grown from a trade counter to a specialist trade and retail shop with a dedicated bathroom showroom, now also featuring modular bedroom furniture.

G & M Plumbing and Heating Ltd are a specialist plumbers’ merchant with a large bathroom showroom on the outskirts of Colchester, between the Marks Tey and Stanway junctions of the A12 on London Road. We specialise in first-class customer service and competitive pricing across our range of products.

Whether you are an established installer with many years of experience, looking for a reliable and affordable supplier for a DIY project, trying to repair a ball valve for the first time, or in need of stylish and functional modular bedroom furniture, we will make the process of purchasing and installing any products that little bit easier.
