The acquisition of refurbishment and decorating specialist A&N Lewis solidifies Gardo Group’s position as the largest building maintenance contractor in Wales.

It joins LCB Group, Cardo (South) – previously known as Osborne Property Services – and Jefferies Contractors.

A & N Lewis was founded in Cardiff in 1987 and specialises in general building works, retrofit and specialist painting and decorating works to corporate properties in South Wales.

Cardo Group chief executive Liam Bevan, said: “The professional and experienced team at A&N Lewis will give us an extra string to our bow in the South Wales area, especially in the field of public and corporate building refurbishment where we are seeing increased opportunities for PAS 2038 compliant retrofit works.

“I am delighted to welcome everyone from A&N to the Cardo Group. I know the business will continue to thrive with well-respected and very experienced directors, Andy Gentile, Andy Gooch and Garry White, remaining at the helm.”

The trio bought A&N Lewis in a management buy-out in 2016. Andy Gentile will take on the role of managing director.

Gentile said: “it’s been 37 years since the company was founded and my fellow directors and I are all excited to take this next step in our history as part of the growing Cardo Group.

“We’ll be reaching out to all of our supply chain partners, too, so they know that we will continue to value their involvement as we work with Cardo to build on our successes.”
