New Premises 2017

At Abbott-Wade we’re always looking to the future. It’s part of our policy of continuous improvement but goes beyond that. Since our early days back in 1996 we have always made a conscious effort to invest in our staff and our infrastructure: our fleet, our tools, our materials and of course – our building.

We’ve left behind our old home in Lowton but stayed close to our St Helens roots. Our new premises in the beautiful village of Burtonwood on the outskirts of Warrington was famously a major airbase used by both the RAF and American forces during WW2. The site was visited by stars of the day such as Glen Miller & his band, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby & Humphrey Bogart among others as well as high ranking officials such Generals Eisenhower and Patton. It’s even rumoured that Burtonwood the only place in the UK ever visited by Elvis Presley  – though he never actually got off the plane.

The base was finally closed in 1994 and with the arrival of Abbott-Wade in the village, Burtonwood will now be home to a ‘stairbase’ rather than an ‘airbase’ and will accommodate plains not planes in our building fitted out to help our business run more efficiently than ever before.
