Incorporated in 1988 as A.B Sealants Ltd, trading began in January 1989 by Nick Richmond who began by selling Silicones, Sealants, Adhesives and Fixings to the Double Glazing sector in and around the South Coast of England.
Due to rapid growth and more work load Nick’s sons Michael (1992) and Jamie (1994) joined the company.
In 1995 after six successful years we moved into new larger premises. With the extra space available we started to stock PVC Fascia and Soffit boards, Window Trims as well as PVC Guttering and Downpipes. Soon afterwards came Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets and Decorative PVC Internal Cladding for Bathrooms and Showers.
With steady growth over the next few years and a few more employees it was the arrival of the Internet and on-line shopping that really took AB Building Products to the next level.
With the release and rise of the Internet and an eye for niche products and markets, Jamie setup the company’s website offering Specialists Silicones, Sealants and Adhesives as well as PVC Internal Cladding and DIY Spray Foam Kits.
This was well recognised in 2007 when AB Building Products Ltd won the 'Test Valley & Hampshire Small Business of the Year Award' presented by Lawrie McMenemy.
In 2009 AB Building Products moved a second time to bigger premises again this time occupying two units. Utilising the extra space Composite Decking was added to the range of products.
Finally in June 2011 we opened a branch in Sydney Australia, this new branch is run by Nick Richmond jnr. To begin with we are now offering the Waterproof Decorative Showerwall Panels, Flooring and Ceiling Panels as well as our Coloured Silicones, Fugi Smoothening Tools, Silicone Removers and most recently adding the Cramer Bathroom Repair Range to the Australian website.
