A&B Engineering is a privately owned company based in Liverpool and provides design and installation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing services throughout the northwest. The company started life back in the 1950’s and has developed over recent years to be one of the largest in its sector and this year the turnover is circa £ 40 Million. We are based in the premises that we own in Derby Lane, Old Swan, Liverpool and we have been here for nearly 50 Years, buying up adjacent property as the business grew from strength to strength. It is owned by the shareholders who are hands on within and who have been long standing employee’s for many years and fortunate for the succession of the company as Directors retire and new blood is introduced. There are currently 300 people within the business, all full time and all Plumbers, Fitters and Electricians are directly employed, many of whom have been with the company for many many years. The company has, and continues to recruit and train a high number of Apprentices in all disciplines both at craft and technical levels. Many of the current Directors and senior management both site and office based started their working life as A&B Apprentices and the company is extremely proud of its ethos in this respect. It has taken many years, considerable investment and considerable hard work from lots of people, past and present, to bring the company to where it is now in terms of its client portfolio, quality reputation, health and safety, expertise and respect it has throughout our industry, for what it strives for and what is has achieved to date.

The success of the business if it could be described in one word is ” people “. Since its formation a long time ago the company’s vision was to invest in the people within it. To recruit, train, develop, mentor and bring out the best in every individual and grow them together alongside the growth of the business. Our vision is to continue on the same path and there is an abundance of talent, of all ages, in all disciplines throughout the company. The skills that are possessed through intensive training and years of development cannot be bought. It is a lifetimes work by so many to build that wealth of knowledge, skill, expertise, experience and know how that is priceless.
Our vision is a highly skilled, user friendly and non-contractural approach with all our clients. We strive to be the very best at what we do. We believe we have the best people all working together and we want to ensure we provide a very safe environment for all and we have invested heavily in recruitment and continued training in Health and Safety to ensure this and we are justifiably proud of our record in this respect.
