Formed in 1983 as a construction company, Adrem initially served the overseas clients of its then parent company, Areen Design Services. In 1988, Tom Galvin joined to run a large refurbishment project for a private residential client in Chelsea. Areen asked Tom to re-position Adrem as a London-based refurbishment contractor; Tom was appointed to Managing Director and commenced the re-organisation of the business.
As Adrem grew over the years, the company extended its services to commercial clients and in 1993, included Samuel Smith Brewery. Adrem carried out numerous refurbishments of famous landmark pub houses for Samuel Smith Brewery, including Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street and the Cittie of Yorke in High Holborn. Following this, the first public sector project was carried out in 1995 working for HMRC (formerly known as the Inland Revenue); the success of this venture lead to expansion in 1998 by setting up a public sector division targeting NHS, local authority and government departments.
By steadily growing for more than a decade, 1999 saw Adrem set up the successful maintenance division, initially to service Samuel Smith public houses across London. Two years later in 2001, Adrem further expanded the maintenance division adding Fullers Brewery to the client list. A high demand for our services prompted Adrem to establish a dedicated maintenance team that also began servicing private households, retail and commercial buildings across London.
Today, Adrem continues to successfully provide London with refurbishment and maintenance solutions to a variety of different clients in both the private and public sectors. Adrem’s core values of commitment to quality workmanship, openness, honesty and a strong client focus has seen Adrem grow into an established refurbishment and maintenance company, whilst remaining a local business.
