Aluminium Bending Specialists was formed in 1993 by Brian Bartram and Robert Pasierb after they saw a gap in the market for a company that placed priority on the quality of service when it came to Aluminium bending. Brian retired in 2007 and Greg Russell (Production Director) and Rob Gavin (Sales Director) have pushed the company on since then. Since 2007, the team continued to work alongside leading engineering companies across the UK to work on some very prestigious projects including the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, the Athlete’s Olympic Village in London and a new production facility for McLaren Motor Sport.
In 2013, Robert Pasierb decided to consider retirement and so Production Director, Greg Russell and Sales Director, Rob Gavin, launched a management buyout for £600,000. Funding Circle and Actons Solicitors both advised on the deal.
The company has gone from strength to strength and now employs 20 staff at its Lowmoor Road Industrial Estate factory in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. In 2012, the company also recorded sales of £1.2m.
ABS has branched out to offer much more than just aluminium bending services, we also deal with the home improvement and construction industries, supplying curved and arched windows and doors, round windows and architectural powdercoating services.
