Heartfelt best wishes

Recent weeks have had up and downs and been filled with mixed emotions. In a week which has seen so much celebration for us, there has also been bad news. One of our main competitors has entered liquidation leaving people out of work and customers disappointed. Our industry is very specialised and as such we all move in similar circles. We have always shared a friendly rivalry and know many of those who worked at the company in various capacities. We would like to send out our best wishes to all those affected at this sad time and wish them all the best going forward. We would also like to reassure our customers that after 20 years in business, Abbott-Wade is stronger and more vibrant than ever and we will continue to offer our customers the highest standards of service and installation as we ever have.

M. C. Escher

The creations of Maurits Cornelis Escher (17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972) are still widely enjoyed and never fail to fascinate and enthral.
