As we look forward to our thirtieth year serving our local authorities, companies and residents it’s worth taking a moment to reflect… We are proud to have the same ethos today as we did back in 1991; that of a family run company, with a reputation built on trust, value for money and quality of craftsmanship. Even though now we are a much bigger family, with five offices and well over 150 employees.

The sheer range of services we now provide go way beyond the electrical side of things, we undertake home conversions, disability adaptations and maintenance for residents, local authorities companies and government agencies across Herefordshire and the surrounding counties.

With such a diverse range of services available, comes the need to partner with other companies to provide the very best products and in AKW we have chosen the market leader.

AKW Leading Bathroom Adaptation Manufacturer

AKW are the leading manufacturer of many of the adaptations we use for bathroom adaptations. Their products are excellent quality and reliable, thanks to their close work with occupational therapists, housing associations, care providers and research institutes.

Their products do exactly what our customers need them to do and importantly, they don’t cost the earth. Their company motto is ‘life made better’ which says a lot about their culture as an organisation and how their ethos closely matches our own.

Their range of products is vast covering everything you might ever need for kitchens, bathrooms and general mobility support around the home. The most popular AKW components we use are products such as shower trays, shower screens and curtain rails. Their range of grab rails is equally impressive, covering every need our customers might have; they are our number one choice.


 “At GB Electrical and Building Services Ltd we are impressed with the service we receive from AKW. Its knowledgeable staff provides a simple and efficient ordering system. We have supplied and fitted AKW products for many years and find them of a good reliable quality. As a company undertaking numerous installation jobs around Herefordshire and the surrounding counties we appreciate their fast delivery times and prompt customer service.”

Discounted Adaptation Products for Herefordshire based clients

As well as their quality, AKW are also well known for the fairness of their pricing, which we are glad to say is a saving we can then pass on to our customers, they even offer a special discount to our own clients based in Herefordshire as well as discounts for council contractors.

It isn’t hard to make a decision to partner with a company like AKW because, like ourselves their priorities lie not just in providing the best quality, but also going the extra mile to offer real value for money.

It can be hard for a growing organisation such as ours to choose a trusted partner to work with closely, but in AKW we are delighted to say we found one of the best and look forward to working together, hopefully for the next thirty years!
