Abegon History

AAG-Old1A.Abecasis Gonzalez Ltd is a family run business, already in its fourth generation and was founded in the 1930s by Alfredo Abecasis-Gonzalez (b. 1890, d. 1972). It was incorporated as a Limited Company in August 1963.

Originally retailing linoleum (hule), sunblinds, mattresses and wholesaling foodstuffs (Honig), wrapping paper and household goods, Abecasis Gonzalez have had to diversify and adapt with changing and growing needs. In the early 80s we sold our wholesale business and expanded the sideline of retailing traditional floor coverings and successfully developed the home-decor business.

A move to larger premises at New Harbours Industrial Estate in 1998 proved crucial in our growth and our Flooring & Furniture store grew from 4 employees to 12 and from 1 delivery van to 4.

By splitting the Flooring & Furniture operation into two separate outlets we were able to specialize in both specific trades and so provide the best service at the time to our customers by working from an additional unit at Europa Business Centre.

AAG-Old2A. Abecasis Gonzalez Ltd specialized in home and office furniture and mattresses. Abegon Fitters Ltd concentrated on the supply and fitting of all types of flooring. They also underwent small contractual works and property maintenance, having fully qualified personnel. In 2007 we took on the additional challenge of installing kitchens and more recently Abecasis Gonzalez obtained ISO 9001 accreditation.

Because of the current worldwide financial trend which has undoubtedly affected all SMEs, in July 2011 we decided to cut down costs and run both companies from the same address at 33 New Harbours. This has proved successful in both the administrative and retail aspects and the client is the one who has benefitted from this. In keeping with current business practices we have committed ourselves to improve our website in order to be more accessible to the modern shopper.

Our aim is to provide personal attention and meet customers’ requirements with efficiency at a reasonable price by dealing only with the most reputable and efficient manufacturers and suppliers in the market. We thrive on a foundation of uncompromising commitment, providing an after sales service for existing and potential customers. Our reward is having clients repeating their visits to us in search of most products and services.
