Groves Gas, a family owned gas, plumbing and heating specialist has trebled the size of their Cwmbran base by expanding their business into an additional unit opposite their exiting unit on Court Road Industrial Estate.

The company has signed a five-year lease for the 1,500 sq ft unit which will be used as showroom by Groves Gas as they extend the services they provide and product ranges.

Established in 2006 by technical gas engineer Shaun Groves, the company has grown their customer base in South East Wales and is now one of the leading specialist providers of gas, plumbing and heating services and products in the region who now employ a team of 14 staff.

Commenting on the growth of his business and explaining what the new unit will be used for, Shaun Groves said, “When I started Groves Gas, I wanted to utilise my experience and industry contacts to provide independent gas services for households and businesses in the area. Our boiler service plans have proved to be very popular and provided us with a solid base to build the business. The new unit will provide us with showroom space for new product ranges we will be introducing including bathrooms, fires, stoves and central heating systems. We have recruited four additional members of staff to work in the showroom and added two additional vans to our fleet for deliveries.”

Lauren Patterson, property assistant for M4 Property Consultants managed the letting of the unit to Groves Gas on behalf of the landlord of Court Road Industrial Estate. She said, “Commercial units in Cwmbran are always in high demand, with just one remaining unit on the estate. Having previously worked with Shaun and his team at Groves Gas we have seen how successful the business has been and were very keen to do all we could to secure their expansion into the new unit.”
