Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

AB Glass Named Business of the Year at Swansea Bay Business Awards


Aluminium manufacturing and installation company AB Glass has won two awards at the Swansea Bay Business Awards 2017, including the Business of the Year award, at a ceremony held on Friday 3 March in Swansea’s Brangwyn Hall.

The Swansea-based company overcame tough competition from some of the most established businesses in the Swansea area, walking away with the Manufacturing Business of the Year award as well as the Business of the Year award.

The Swansea Bay Business Awards are the biggest and most prestigious awards in the Swansea Bay region. They celebrate some of the most significant successes in business in the area through recognising top firms and individuals.

AB Glass’ founder, Alan Brayley, started the business in 1991 with just one van and a desire to succeed. Last year (2016) marked the company’s 25th year in business. During this time, it has grown from strength to strength through continuously increasing its employee base, expanding the business’ offering and becoming experts in the glazing and aluminium manufacturing sector. The company now secures multi-million pound projects with some of the UK’s leading construction and property development firms.

Alan Brayley commented:

“I am so pleased with how much recognition the company has received from the Swansea Bay Business Awards 2017. Acknowledgment needs to be given to the team at AB Glass as without them, we would not be where we are today. They are dedicated, hard-working and willing to go the extra mile and it is these attributes that help lead a company to success.

“I feel very proud for the company to receive the overall Business of the Year. There were so many outstanding businesses at the awards and within the Swansea region, so to gain this recognition is extremely overwhelming.”
