After 49 years on the job, Tauranga plumber Ian Malcolm is calling it a day and retiring from the career he started as an apprentice in 1968.
Working during the school holidays for a plumbing company, Ian found he enjoyed the work and wanted to take it further.
When he completed college, Ian asked local business Paeroa Plumbers if they were looking for a plumbing apprentice. And the rest, they say, is history, with Ian hanging up his tools at Laser Plumbing Tauranga Central next week.
