Harry and Oliver Griffiths join the family-owned, Shropshire-based Tudor Griffiths Group
FAMILY-owned Shropshire firm Tudor Griffiths Group, who have their head office in Ellesmere and employ more than 300 people, trading out of 30 different locations, have embarked on a new chapter with the addition of the next generation to the team.
Managing director Tudor Griffiths, whose sons Harry and Oliver have become the sixth generation of the family to join the firm, 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.’
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,’ said Tudor Griffiths.
‘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 are made up of several divisions, including eight builders’ merchants in Ellesmere, Oswestry, Northwich, Nantwich, Tattenhall, Welshpool, Wolverley, and Bridgnorth.
They also have 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 operate across Shropshire, Cheshire, Worcestershire, and Mid- and North Wales.
