The words ‘family business’ could not be a better description of D&K Egan Plumbing. Dean, Karen, their two boys Hamish and Sean, and their dog Kaiser all have a part to play in the success of the business today. You’ll often find the boys helping their dad at work to earn a bit of pocket money and Kaiser is Dean’s trusty apprentice – always on site keeping an eye on things.
Dean and his family moved to Canberra in 2011 from country NSW and haven’t looked back.
Always interested in trades and construction, the plumbing industry keeps Dean on his toes and gives him what he was always looking for – a way to help people. Priding themselves on customer service, Dean and the team are known across the industry for going above and beyond to meet the needs of both residential, and commercial clients.
Dean is the first to admit it isn’t always the most glamorous job in the world, ‘I must admit sometimes the smell and situations I have to face are challenging. Our washing machine certainly clocks up the miles – but if it assists others, that’s what makes it worth it’.
Dean’s approach to work and life is simple, ‘It is all about people. My family, my friends, and my clients. Good relationships are what give life purpose’.
It is a 24/7 job and is all about an honest day’s pay, for an honest day’s work and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Dean and his family love spending time together – supporting the kids at their sporting activities, camping, going to the beach, and having adventures.
