Since starting out as Adrian White Building Supplies in 1988, AWBS has grown significantly to become one of the biggest suppliers of building and landscaping products in the Swindon and Oxford areas.
At AWBS Building and Landscaping Supplies we now proudly boast three branches with extensive showrooms, our own aggregate bagging facility, a fleet of specialised delivery vehicles, a dedicated landscape installation service and a 50-strong team of highly experienced and knowledgeable people.
Adrian White Building Supplies
Back in 1988, Adrian White formed Adrian White Building supplies, selling building products to trade customers in and around Oxford. When we opened our first showroom that July, at South Hinksey Garden Centre in Oxford, we were able to offer a comprehensive range of building supplies and landscaping supplies to both trade and public customers. With fabulous displays, our customers were now able to view our ranges of building and landscaping supplies, seven days a week.
Dedicated landscaping services
Our continued growth led to us to introduce our complete landscaping service in 2001, which has achieved trusted trader status with Trading Standards, as well as approved installer status with renowned brands Bradstone and Brett Paving. The AWBS landscaping team, based at our Oxford branch, offers a professional and personalised service, with qualified tradesman whose combined experience spans over 60 years.
AWBS showrooms in Oxford, Swindon and Yarnton
Building on the success of Adrian White Building Supplies in Oxford, we opened two more conveniently located showrooms, in 2003. AWBS Landscaping and Building Supplies at Cheney Manor Garden Centre in Swindon, and Yarnton Nurseries at Sandy Lane, Yarnton. As with our builders’ merchants in Oxford, these new showrooms allowed customers to view our extensive ranges of building and landscaping supplies, including paving, fencing, aggregates and turf. Having these further two branches located within garden centres also offered the added benefit of being open seven days a week, including bank holidays.
AWBS aggregates bagging facility
In 2004, we opened our own aggregate and gravel bagging facility in Witney, allowing us to provide our customers with a vast – and unrivalled – selection of shingles, chippings, cobbles and construction sands and gravels.

Developing the AWBS offering
While we’re exceptionally proud of how far Adrian White Building Supplies has come, we’re not ones to sit on our laurels.

We take great pride in our people being knowledgeable and able to help with any queries our customers may have, so we provide on-going staff training to always ensure a service that’s second to none.
