Over 40 years in the boiler and burner business

A company called Devham Services started trading in boiler sales and combustion services in Wellington in 1980 and in 1984 Tubman Heating serviced its first boiler in Auckland.


Each company began as it meant to continue. Right from the start, they had an unwavering focus on boilers and burners, along with a commitment to keeping their customers’ businesses running.


Fast forward to 2013. Tubman Heating was sold to new owners, Jim and Debby Quinn & Chris and Helen Callen. Both Jim and Chris have solid business backgrounds, with Jim a former CEO of Kiwirail and now holding a number of diverse directorships and Chris the veteran of high-level corporate roles in New Zealand, Australia, India, Singapore and South Korea. More importantly, Jim and Chris have known each other for over 40 years and each relished the opportunity to work together in taking an established enterprise to the next level.


In September 2018 Tubman Heating Limited bought the assets of Devham Services Limited in Wellington. Since its inception the Wellington business has steadily grown in size and now works in any part of the country but directly services the lower North Island of New Zealand . It also supplies parts and equipment throughout New Zealand and Australia. Like its big brother in Auckland the Wellington branch is a market leader with a significant sales pipeline and a very bright future.


In October 2018, Tubman Heating Limited established a foothold in Hamilton from which there is a robust business developing in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions.


These branches have terrific service technicians and projects staff, supported by a very experienced specialist team of managers who are experts in the fields of heating system design, servicing, installation and commissioning of boilers, burners (all fuels) plant control systems and all associated equipment.


On 1st April 2020, Tubman Heating Limited updated its image and decided on a uniform look and feel across all branches. It had initially kept the ‘Devham Services’ branding in the Wellington region to help the ownership transition process and to keep the relationships with clients stable, but now is the time to see the Tubman Heating brand in a bright new way. This is part of a strategy to help position the company as a market leader in the North Island.
