FRESH from winning Family Business of the Year 2021 at the Swansea Bay Business Awards, the good news keeps on coming for the Gavin Griffiths Group of companies. As one of the region’s leading recycling, waste management, haulage and aggregate suppliers, the business has been recognised at a national level.
In a very competitive category at an awards ceremony to honour and reward the UK’s most entrepreneurial and high growth business, up against 1,400 other businesses in the category, Gavin Griffiths Recycling came out on top at the Growing Business Awards 2021.
They were delighted to be announced B2B Business of the Year 2021 at a fantastic ceremony held at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.
This latest award is further testimony to the hard work and determination that has seen the business accelerate its growth plans since its inception in 2005.
During the last 18 months, the group has opened its second site, a 40-acre inert recycling facility in Carmarthenshire, complementing its existing mixed recycling facility in Swansea whilst delivering one of its largest and most prestigious contracts working on the Llangennech railway crash land remediation. Continued investment into the business has also driven the arrival of new staff, additional machinery, plant and 10 new trucks to support the expansion plans.
Whilst keeping their values as a family business, they have continued their community and social values programme, continuing to support grassroots sports, individuals, schools and charities across South and West Wales.
Gavin Griffiths, Group Managing Director, commented: “I was very honoured to see us make the final of such a prestigious national award, but when our name was read out as the winner, I was extremely proud of what we have achieved as a team.
“I would like thank the whole team, as well as every one of our customers, suppliers and stakeholders for supporting us on our journey so far. This recognition is phenomenal, we are so grateful and humbled to have been chosen from so many other amazing businesses throughout the UK.
“We have some exciting developments on the horizon that will see us pioneer and lead the way in the recycling market. To win two awards in one year really shows how we have kept our family ethos and worked hard to serve our customers across the whole business.”
