CITB ‘building Bafta’ proves training is key

Lloyd & Gravell Ltd’s unswerving commitment to training has been key to growing the business, surviving the recession and securing the future – and they have a prestigious award to prove it.

The thriving family construction business based in Ponthenri, Carmarthenshire, won an Outstanding Employer accolade at the CITB Pride of Construction Awards 2014.

“It was like the Baftas!” says Kevin Gravell, who owns the firm with best friend Paul Lloyd and their wives Andrea Gravell and Sharon Lloyd.

“When they called our name out we couldn’t believe it. Even the next day, we couldn’t believe it. It was an immense moment for our company and our whole community.

“It’s testimony that the way we’ve tried to do things is the right way. Being part of celebrating 50 years of CITB made it extra special as we’ve worked closely with them since our establishment in 1991.”
