Our Story


Kingfisher Plumbing has been serving Tauranga’s plumbing needs for over 15 years and guarantees quality service at competitive pricing.

The family run business was started in 2000 by Gaven and Sharon Armit, who moved up from Timaru and put together a happy bunch of Tauranga plumbers, gas fitters and drainlayers and called themselves Kingfisher Plumbing.

In 2016, their second born son Quinn, and his wife Steph, bought the business off Gaven and Sharon and have been happily and successfully running it ever since.

Quinn is based in our office as manager alongside our other manager Don and office lady Michelle, whilst Steph works from home with their 2 year old son Maddock, 2 whippet dogs; Perro and Hux, and another baby boy on the way.

Quinn is a Craftsman Plumber, Gasfitter and Drainlayer and has been in the industry since he was 16 years old, with experience both in New Zealand and maintenance plumbing in London where him and Steph lived for two years. Steph has a Business degree from Victoria Uni, majoring in Marketing and Management. Together they have updated the job software and systems Kingfisher uses, delivering an efficient and effective experience for clients.
