About the employer

The origins of the company go back to the mid 1920's and the GB Griffiths building company.  In 1952, GBG identified the need for a specialist high security fencing contractor and GBG Fences was born.

Today, over 60 years on, the company is still owned and run by the Griffiths family. They also have many loyal and longstanding members of staff who are all very important to them. One family has over 80 years’ service with the company between them!
