REDDITCH-BASED construction company Abbey and Lyndon Builders will celebrate 50 years next month.
It’s a big milestone for the family-run business, which was established in 1969 by local resident Adrian Pratt.
Adrian was then joined by his son-in-law David Auld in 1982 and by 1996 they were partners in the business.
David’s son Damon joined the company in 2001, helping keep the family tradition alive.
In 2014 Adrian decided to hang up his tools and enjoy his retirement by selling his share in the company to David.
“We are very proud as a local company to have reached the 50-year landmark,” said David, “And we are looking forward to new challenges in the future while providing a successful basis for local employment and customer satisfaction.”
The company, based on Shawbank Road, covers all aspects within the building trade including flooring and roofing.
It also specialises in disabled adaptions for homes, commercial works and new builds.
Their client base ranges from Care & Repair to Halfords, to dealing with local authority work, schools, churches and commercial projects. The public is also a major part of their client base and all 20 staff members say their pride and passion in their work is a key element in gaining new clients.
To celebrate 50 years in business, Abbey and Lyndon will be running a competition each month, starting March 1, over the next 12 months.
It will give people a chance to win a £50 voucher of their choice if they can guess correctly where ‘Toby the Tipper’ is hiding out in Redditch.
