Llanmoor Homes and Barclays Bank celebrate 50 year partnership
Award-winning Welsh housebuilder, Llanmoor Homes, is celebrating 50 years working with their chosen bank, Barclays. Llanmoor have been working with Barclays Bank since the company began in 1966. The partnership anniversary also coincides with Llanmoor’s 50th anniversary of trading, which the house builder is celebrating this year.
Llanmoor Homes’ founder, Brian Grey, began working with Barclays Bank when he started looking for the pieces of land that would become some of Llanmoor’s first developments. Thanks to previous qualifications and experience working as a Chartered Accountant, Brian was able to foster important relationships with local farmers and business owners to acquire land for developing and with the assistance of Barclays Bank to gain the funding needed to get the company off the ground.
50 years on from the inception of the company, Llanmoor Homes remains a family-owned company and is now run by Brian Grey’s three sons – Tim, Simon and Matthew Grey. 2015/16 was a fantastic year for Llanmoor, with a record number of completed sales.
Tim Grey, Sales Director at Llanmoor Homes, said: “There aren’t many working relationships, especially between a company and their chosen bank, that have been ongoing for a period of 50 years.
“From the very beginning, Barclays Bank has provided Llanmoor Homes with remarkable support and trust in the company and the decisions we’ve made. Throughout our highs and lows as a company, including the various recessions, they’ve continued to work with us and help fund our new developments across South Wales.”
Steve Thomas, Head of the Real Estate Team at Barclays Bank said: “Barclays have banked Llanmoor since its inception, which is now 50 years ago! We are extremely proud of our longstanding relationship and are delighted to be able to support this family-run business which has produced record results in the last financial year. The business continues to go from strength to strength and is the stand out regional housebuilder in South Wales. We are looking forward to working with Llanmoor for many years to come and supporting their continued growth.”
Llanmoor Homes is one of the only remaining large scale, privately owned house builders in South Wales. Established in 1966, Llanmoor Homes will be celebrating its 50th year of trading this year. The company is directed from its headquarters in Talbot Green by brothers Simon, Tim and Matthew Grey.
