About Lewis Pie & Pasty Company Limited
Lewis Pies bakery was established in 1936 employing four people and is now a large manufacturing company.
We now employ approximately 120 full time members of staff and between the directors (Wilf and John) and bakery managers have over 260 years of bakery experience. This experience ensures that quality ingredients are purchased and quality products are manufactured in a food safe environment.
The original bakery was set up in Beech Street Swansea by our father Wilfred Charles Lewis. We formed the partnership during the late 1970s to enable us to take over the business from our father, and it remains a family run business.
We analysed our market position and found that demand for our products was greater than the current supply. We next decided that there was a need to expand our production capabilities, and refrigerated storage space, to cope with this. Consequently, a new bakery in Glamorgan Yard, Swansea, was leased in 1989. Further expansion in West Wales and Bristol lead to us moving into our present premises in Abergelly Road in 1996. The location of these premises, with excellent M4 Motorway access, was an important consideration in our selection, giving the company a good opportunity to expand our market even further.
In 1998 we saw an opportunity to increase and enhance our product range. We acquired ‘Wendy’s Bakery’ producers of high quality bread and confectionery allowing us to offer a full range of bakery products to our customers. In August 2002 John and I decided to restructure the business to form a Limited company and it now trades as the corporate entity Lewis Pies and Pasty Ltd, which incorporates “Wendy’s Bread & Confectionery” within the business.
In August 2009 we completed a £2million expansion increasing our production space adding a new 200 pallet freezer, new butchery and improved staff facilities. All of this has set us up for the future and we look forward to growing the business both home and abroad.
Historically we have always listened to our customers in order to understand their needs and supply them with top quality products. This philosophy continues to be a corner stone of our company’s customer care policy.
Lewis Pie & Pasty Co still offer an exceptional standard of customer service. Listening to our customers, understanding their needs and supplying top quality products has enabled us to develop into the thriving business we are today. It is our belief that these quality products go hand in hand with top quality customer care. Whether the customer requires a specific product, technical advice or a delivery enquiry, we will do whatever we can to help.
