Abode, award-winning designer and distributor of market leading kitchen taps, sinks, bathroom taps & showering solutions has always referred to itself as a family and now, its strong values and company culture help to mark a huge company milestone for one of its team.

Matthew Pitt, Managing Director at Abode comments, β€œRob started his career with Abode in September 2002, first beginning in the warehouse before progressing into distribution management and then stock control. Supplying him with a depth of knowledge and expertise following two decades of working with the brand, Rob continues to prove his dedication and loyalty every day and has become a great role model for those already in the company or thinking about joining.”

Robert Wilsher, Stock Controller at Abode says, β€œFor me, the last twenty years has felt less like work and more like a fun journey, which I have been able to learn and grow from along the way. Not only am I surrounded by colleagues that I deem as my friends and family, I also get to share how the company and marketplace has dramatically changed over the last twenty years and with that, how Abode has continued to influence and helped to define the latest designs and technologies for the UK kitchen and bathroom.”
