Sam Tyson purchased heating and cooling business Climate in New Plymouth in 2010, coming to the plumbing industry with no prior knowledge.
Sam joined Master Plumbers to help her learn as much as she could about the trade and establish connections she could turn to for guidance and support.
She became President of the Taranaki Master Plumbers Association in 2014. In the same year, she and her husband Lee purchased two of the region’s plumbing and gasfitting businesses, Plumbwell and Anchor & Ellis Contractors Ltd, enabling them to expand their service oﬀering. This was reflected by a name change in 2016 to Climate & Plumbing.
In 2021, Sam was elected a member of the national Master Plumbers Board—her second time in the role, having previously been co-opted in May 2018 for a one-year term. In the same year, she was selected as a Women of Influence Awards Finalist in the Board and Management Category.
Her other current industry role includes representing Master Plumbers as a member of the New Plymouth District Council Business Interest Group as well as being a regular and award-winning contributor to NZ Plumber magazine.
