Abode family fun day celebrates 20-year business anniversary

Abode, award-winning designer and distributor of market leading kitchen taps, sinks, bathroom taps & showering solutions marked its 20-year business anniversary with a special ‘Family Fun Day’ for colleagues, friends and family of the brand.

The celebration took place on Saturday 16th July, in its hometown of Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Guests were greeted with welcome drinks, where the grown-ups could enjoy a live saxophonist as well as seek shade in the private marquee with bar. Little ones could hang out in the ball-pit or watch some magic tricks, and everyone got to feast on the hot BBQ, retro sweets cart and celebratory birthday cake!

Founded in 2002, Abode first launched the brand with a range of premium kitchen taps followed by its pioneering Aquifier filtered water taps in 2004, and then patented Swich filter water device in 2007. Abode has since launched a special wood edition crafted entirely of Beechwood timber, which marks 15 years of Swich while supporting the rule of three to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’.

In 2008, the company expanded into bathroom brassware and showers, followed by kitchen sinks in 2010, before debuting its award-winning Pronteau collection of 4 IN 1 steaming hot water taps in 2016. Since launch, Abode has always been ahead of the curve thanks to its commitment to design innovation, sustainability and wellness, all supported by a strong team of in-house product experts that bring high quality service levels to new and existing customers.

Matthew Pitt, Managing Director at Abode says, “We have been on an incredible journey since the company began in 2002, and I am so grateful for the sterling work of our entire Abode Family. We are only as good as the people we work with and having an informal networking event to celebrate such a momentous occasion helps us to build stronger connections for an even greater future. Everyone plays a vital role in the company, and I want to acknowledge their hard work and keen ability to maintain our standing as a market leader in quality product design, together.”

Leanne Adamson, Marketing Manager at Abode says, “We are thrilled we could come together and celebrate our commitment, vision and hard work over the last two decades with each other. As a close-knit business, we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to the team for their loyalty and outstanding efforts as we continue to grow and develop the brand. It was wonderful for us all to share in some fun outside of work, with family activities, food and entertainment scheduled throughout the day. We also hosted a fundraising raffle, where we raised an impressive £500 for the children’s ward at Barnsley Hospital; a local healthcare facility very close to our hearts.”
