Celebrating 20 years in business during 2022
04 Jan 2022

SWG is 20 years old in 2022!

We are marking our business anniversary with a year of celebrations and we want you to help.

How we started 

  • SWG Group launched on December 18, 2002, by Steve Gough.
  • Steve was a sole trader doing carpentry before employing a few people to complete his first council contract under the name SWG Business Ltd.
  • In 2018 we expanded to open a second office in Shrewsbury and began to complete jobs across Shropshire and the surrounding areas.
  • In 2019 we switched to SWG Group to better reflect our evolving and growing company.
  • The same year we launched the SWG Academy, training the workforce of the future.

We now employ over 50 staff and have many contractors. And 2022 not only sees our 20th anniversary celebrations, it will also see the launch of another branch of the SWG Group!

SWG Homes will begin working on new builds for the first time - and we’ll reveal more about that in due course.

How we are celebrating 

Our team will be taking part in a different challenge each month in order to raise money for charity. We hope you will help us to raise thousands of pounds for worthwhile causes!

Money raised from the events throughout the year will be split between Welsh Air Ambulance, based at Welshpool Airport, Ponthafren Association, a mental health charity in Mid Wales, and MacMillan Cancer Support.

Some challenges will be organised events that our team members will be taking part in, others will be fundraising events organised by ourselves, and the celebrations will begin with not a challenge, but a donation to Radnorshire Wildlife Trust this month. We will donate to help them get the fencing upgrades they need.

How we feel 

We are incredibly proud of the company SWG Group has become and continues to develop into.

To be able to employ so many people across Powys and Shropshire is brilliant.

It is an exciting time in the construction industry and our company is thriving because we are adapting to change, keeping up to date with developments and also investing in our future.

Twenty years is a long time but we know with the dedicated staff and business direction we have, SWG will continue to be an established company for many, many years to come.

Play your part

So please come and help us celebrate by helping those in need throughout our special anniversary year!
