A family-owned local firm has embarked on a new chapter with the addition of the sixth generation to the team.
Tudor Griffiths Group, which has its head office in Ellesmere, employs over 300 people, trading out of 30 different locations.
And now, Managing Director Tudor Griffiths’ sons Harry and Oliver have become the sixth generation of the family to join the firm.
Tudor said: “It’s wonderful to see the legacy of our company strengthened by Harry and Oliver joining the family company.
“Welcoming them into the business marks an important milestone. Their fresh ideas will be essential as we stride forward, and their involvement ensures a seamless transition from one generation to the next.”
Tudor said the Tudor Griffiths Group story began in 1874, when William Griffiths – at the age of 25 – turned his vision into a reality by establishing himself as a builder in Kinnerley, near Oswestry.
“From humble beginnings, the company rapidly expanded taking on initial building projects like the United Reformed Chapel at Dovaston, and the Baptist Chapel in Newtown.
“And now today, the Tudor Griffiths Group, which is still under family ownership and management after almost 150 years, continues to thrive and we are looking forward to a busy and productive future.”
Tudor Griffiths Group is made up of several divisions, including eight builders’ merchants in Ellesmere, Oswestry, Northwich, Nantwich, Tattenhall, Welshpool, Wolverley, and Bridgnorth.
It also has 14 ready-mixed concrete plants, three sand and gravel quarries, a sea-dredged sand operation, as well as renewable energy initiatives, recycling services, and skip hire, and operates across Shropshire, Cheshire, Worcestershire, and mid and north Wales.
