Beavis & Bartels Group was established in 1954 and became one of the first plumbing businesses to become a member of the Master Plumbers Association in 1960.

Managing Director Michael Ryan began his career with Beavis & Bartels as an apprentice in 1997. His impressive forward-thinking and passion for the hydraulic industry was recognised early in his career, and it wasn’t long until he worked his way up the ranks to B&B Director in 2004.

In 2012, Michael Ryan purchased the Beavis & Bartels Group name and CDC Holdings Group joined the business shortly after. Peter Carrick, Chairman and majority shareholder of CDC Holdings Group, became the second director of Beavis & Bartels Group, bringing along a wealth of industry experience with more than 40 years in the field.

Since then, Beavis & Bartels Group have delivered some of Queensland’s landmark developments across a diverse range of sectors – just take a look at some of our recent projects.

The partnership between directors has earned Beavis & Bartels Group a leading reputation in the plumbing industry across South-East Australia. Based on experience from their time on the tools, Ryan and Carrick’s progressive and proven business principles are reflected through every aspect of B&B’s day-to-day operations.

In 2019, we opened our B&B Services division to expand our capabilities to provide everyday repair and maintenance plumbing services to residents and businesses across South-East Queensland from Mackay all the way down to the Gold Coast and everything in between, including Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Our culture of continuous development has led to a team of over 150 B&B specialist plumbers who think strategically to find smarter, more efficient ways to work. Our rigorous risk management systems and personalised approach mean that we can offer our customers security and capacity, with the reliability and diligence of your local plumber.
