Our Story

Dave Merwood served his plumbing apprenticeship in the small town of Taihape in 1986 and moved to Taupo in 1992. A few years later in 1998, Dave and Kylie established Merwood Plumbing & Drainage Limited. Our excellent reputation led to an invitation from the Laser Group in Auckland to join the group and we became Laser Plumbing Taupo in June 2008.

Our current location is purpose built in March 2012 and alongside with Laser Electrical Taupo, we continue to foster the group focus. By providing better street appeal, a designated reception area, workshop at the rear of the building and available car parking provides customers with a better overall experience. The premises are located at 3/41 Runanga Street, Taupo.

Laser Plumbing Taupo has developed over 14 years based upon family ideals.  We value the contribution our staff bring to the company and reward them accordingly.

We are a tight knit family and work together as a team, helping each other out where and when the opportunity rises. We recognise the role apprentices play in our industry and are committed to providing a career path for the next generation.

We see each challenge faced as an opportunity to re-evaluate our strengths and position in the market and make changes to our business where required.  As a result of this approach, and the developments experienced over time, we are a stronger business for it with key objectives and drivers for the future.  Through managing a strong, highly skilled team working in a culture that drives customer excellence, we are in a position to live our “Totally Dependable” service brand.
