Bryden & Minors Ltd. was established in 1972 as a result of a merger between two well-known businesses, A.S. Bryden & Sons (Barbados) and Gerald S.W. Smith & Co. Ltd. (GSWS). In 2004, Ansa McAl acquired Brydens in Barbados, and therefore now own the Brydens shares (33 1/3%) in Bryden & Minors Ltd.
B&M Ltd. has diversified over the years and now consists of 4 divisions that are spread over 7 properties and include over 35,000 square feet of warehouse and retail space.
Building a solid foundation based on honesty and integrity has allowed Bryden & Minors Ltd. to become a trustworthy partner in today’s uncertain world with all of our stakeholders. We value our long-standing relationships with our suppliers, as we strive for excellence in building their brands together. Our commitment to employee and customer satisfaction have led to the establishment of a very loyal and long-term relationship with all our customers and staff. As we continue to strive to be the employer of choice, we remain committed to our number one asset, our employees. We foster a ‘family’ culture internally, which is reflected in our lasting connections with both current and past personnel.
We pride ourselves on being a long standing corporate citizen and it is a great honour to be able to give back to the Grenadian community. The company continues to support charitable causes around the island, touching the lives of many along the way. We are also well known supporters of sporting and cultural events that help foster a healthy community spirit and build a stronger nation for our youth.
