St Helens captain still believes in teamwork
‘Wide to West’ rugby league hero Chris Joynt, one of the most successful captains of St Helens, believes you’re only as good as the team around you, “and it’s exactly the same in business”, he says.
A well known personality in an area that is passionate about rugby league, Chris is now in partnership with Albert Wood, and their companies, Heat Spares and Plumbing Supplies ltd and Sure Fire Heating and Maintenance ltd, supply and install quality heating products in and around St Helens.
Chris explains how he got into the plumbing business. “When I retired from rugby in 2004, I had a small property development company. The biggest outlay was for plumbing, so, like the Remington guy, I bought the business!
“A winning business is like a winning team – you all pull together, supported by the best facilities and products – and this ethos has made our business really successful.
“Building relationships with both customers and suppliers is part of the winning formula. Our relationship with Main started because they helped us out with a pump, then we sold one boiler and it just escalated. The products they supply are great quality for the price, and they give us really good support.
“Our customers really like the new Main Eco Band A boilers, and when they try the new Main cylinder, they are converted and won’t go back to their old brand.”
