AJW Distribution celebrates 20 years of trading

2018 is a year of celebration for the team at AJW Distribution as it is with great pride that they are celebrating its 20th year.

Set up by Managing Director Alan John Woods back in March 1998,the business, with nearly 60 staff in 4 depots throughout the region and a new office just opened in Leicester, AJW shows no signs of slowing down.
Woods commented: “I never dreamt, 20 years ago, that AJW would be so successful and become such a force in the East Anglia roofing market.”
Woods joined Atlas Cement (now Marley Eternit) in Meldreth straight from school. He has lived and breathed roofing for many years, amassing a knowledge of the industry that exceeds anyone and his skill to sell is extraordinary.
As a family-owned and run business, AJW prides itself on the service it offers to its customers and also celebrates the high quality of staff which they have.
Woods continues: “Moving forward after 20 years, I feel it is time to step back and take even more holidays, so over coming weeks, my responsibilities will be delegated to my three children; Gareth, Charlotte and Thomas, plus our ever growing band of managers.
I would like to thank everybody for their support over the years. In my days at Atlas I employed a young semi-pro footballer called Ted Carolan, who followed me to our previous company and then 13 years ago, came to AJW. Without his help, friendship and support we would not be the force we are today. He has, without question, promoted the company’s motto of ‘Where Services Comes First’. All of our younger staff look up to Ted and constantly seek his advice.
It is with great pleasure that we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary with various events throughout the year. Watch out for offers, promotions, charity events and also depot parties to fully mark this huge achievement. Finally, I would like to wish the younger generation every success in the future.”
