Our Story

I’m Rod Sharp from Sharp Plumbing Services, born in Marton on the morning of February 5, 1986, to Phil and Karen Sharp. Phil Sharp was an Avionics Technician in the Air Force, so I was next in my family to inherit technical abilities Sharper than most! When I was five my Dad was stationed in Aussie and so I went to spend three formative years travelling alongside him. Those are fond memories.

In 7th form I had my mind made up, I wanted to leave school. But my parents ruled that I couldn’t until I had a job. So when it was announced at school assembly that a local Plumbing Business was looking to take on an apprentice, I hatched my plan. I knew a bunch of other guys at my school wanted the job too, so I skipped my last two classes to get in first. Would you believe it, that move got me the job.
