Meet ‘Winston Wolfe’: Aftercare at Abbott-Wade

Winston Wolfe was the famous ‘fixer’ from Pulp Fiction who defines his role with the line, ‘I solve problems’. We have no need for this Harvey Keitel character, instead we have Adam – our Abbott-Wade equivalent (only much less intimidating and far more friendly). Affectionately known to his friends as ‘Wiggy’, Adam’s career started in cabinet making – a trade which demands a keen eye for detail. His passion for renovating camper vans and building durable, quality longboards (skateboards to you and I) in his spare time has honed his ability to adapt his carpentry skills to solve almost any problem. All of this makes him the ideal perfectionist for the position of Abbott-Wade’s resident ‘Fixer‘, or Aftercare Fitter to give him his official title.

The National Family Business Awards: Reflecting on an Award Winning Evening!

Some time has passed since our award winning at Wembley Stadium, a little dust has even had time to settle on our award, but while it’s business as usual at Abbott-Wade, it’s great to reject on such a memorable occasion…

An evening at the award is always full of promise, glamour and anticipation and this was no exception. Members of the Abbott-Wade family journeyed down from our Burtonwood base down to the bright lights of London and into the national arena, Wembley Stadium where we scooped the prestigious honour of the Best Small Business in the North West at the National Family Business Awards.

Innovation & Excellence Awards 2018

banner
We’ve been pioneering staircase renovations and new flights for over 20 years. Many of the techniques and practices which are now considered the industry standard were developed by company directors Craig Abbott & Mike Wade. Far from resting on our laurels, Abbott-Wade have continued to innovate and raise standards which drives progress throughout the industry as competitors try to keep pace. No mean feat when you compare us with some of the much larger businesses out there.

Our achievements have now been recognised by the Corporate Livewire Innovation & Excellence Awards and our family business have been shortlisted for the 2018 awards.

It is understandably a very proud achievement for us. As a small business we always worked hard to create a company we can be proud, conduct ourselves in a professional manner and put the customer first. Since 1996 we have innovated, invested in our future and lead the industry trends as tastes for styles and materials have changed.
