Pave Aways Limited was incorporated on 1st October 1973. The Company operated for twenty-four years from a shared premises at Park Hall, Oswestry. In the early days much of the work was of a civil engineering nature, comprising of groundworks, hard landscaping and constructing paths, drives and roads for local builders and private clients. As time went on the Company obtained building maintenance contracts at military and various other establishments. The building maintenance and building construction gained a far greater prominence and gradually took over the main activity of the business. By 1997 Pave Aways Limited was well established as a good building company with an experienced management team, a proven workforce and sound business procedure.
In 1997 Cliff Evans (Knockin) Limited (a sister Company operating from the same site) was sold and Pave Aways Limited moved to “Avenue Mill, Knockin”. The turnover of the Company in 1997 was £6.5 million and the Directors set about expanding the client base and taking on larger and more demanding projects. The reputation of the Company grew and by 2011 the annual turnover had increased to over £13 million and the directly employed workforce to over eighty.
In 2011, three members of staff, Steven Owen, Bernadette Jones and Mike Donoghue, undertook a Management Buy Out. This enabled a fresh perspective on the industry and a renewed vigour for growth. In 2016, when the Management Buy Out was completed and the company returned to being wholly owned, the turnover had increased to £22million and employees to over 100. The level of profit against turnover had also increased.
In 2016, Mike Donoghue retired and two new Directors were welcomed – Victoria Lawson and Jamie Evans. Both Vicky and Jamie had been with Pave Aways over ten years.
Pave Aways Limited is a self-financing Company which has achieved a steady controlled growth. The contracts undertaken in the early days have little resemblance to the contracts carried out now and the name “Pave Aways” is no longer a description of its modern day building projects. But Pave Aways is here to stay – its reputation and performance in the construction industry together with its financial stability places it way ahead of many of its competitors.
