AWS operated under the group banner for more than a decade, and managing director, Mike Burton, said the move was a rebranding exercise to reinforce the company’s “fresh approach”.

He continued “At AWS, we train people in consistently delivering our brand “My Word Is My Bond” so that our customers know that each and every member of the AWS team will do what they say, giving reassurance in our service,” “I am very excited that we are moving forward with AWS and want everyone here to share our success. All staff will become partners so that they will earn a stake in the business in which they add value.” “Albany has always had a history of providing customer confidence, rewarding employee and supplier loyalty and we’re going to continue to build the success of the Albany brand around these core values which we now call the Albany Way.”
