About us


Ben is a Certifying Plumber, Drainlayer and accredited Solar Installer. He has been in the industry for over 30 years and brings a wealth of experience in specialised fields such as solar hot water and central heating systems.

He started Fusion Plumbing and Solar as a one-man band and now employs a staff of 5. He is a member of the Master Plumbers Association and has recently become the President of the Nelson branch committee.

Ben is the most experienced solar specialist in the Nelson region, having undertaken many solar installations over the years, both commercial and residential. His knowledge of solar is second to none. He also enjoys mountain biking when he gets the chance!


Reece is now a Tradesman Plumber and Drainlayer, having completed his apprenticeship with Fusion and has taken on all aspects of plumbing with great enthusiasm. His eagerness and willingness to try new things makes him a great addition to our team.  In his spare time he enjoys refereeing top level regional rugby games and hanging out with family.


With plumbing in his blood, it was inevitable that Rylee would one day join the family business.  He always enjoyed helping out the old man in is spare time and is now in his second year of an apprenticeship, something we are all very excited about.  In his spare time he enjoys the gym and hanging out with friends.


Liam is the youngest one on our team and has recently joined us as a first year apprentice.  We look forward to working and developing his skills.  He has come straight out of college where he was part of the very successful Boys College 1st XV.


Tamara takes care of our Administration and Human Resources, working alongside Ben to maintain and promote the business as well as looking for innovative ideas to apply to the workforce. She handles all aspects of customer service from accounts to booking jobs, without her we would be stuck!  She is also a Mum so juggles the work life balance on a daily basis.

Because you have been so helpful and accommodating I've been recommending you to everybody I know. Please tell your boss to give you a pay rise. You're a major asset to the company. Big thanks!
