As part of our commitment to SHE / staff welfare we now have defibrillators fitted in all of our regional offices.
Apparently the fully portable machines are simple to use and talk you through the usage procedure step by step.
Lets hope they never have to be used.
Blast from the past
This was one of our first Hitachi EX215’s, purchased in the year 2000 from HM Plant and delivered from their then premises in Coleshill, Birmingham. A great piece of nostalgia and testament to the levels of investment by the Kelly family throughout the Company’s history.
MVK are pleased to welcome the delivery of another 5 nr 21T GPS prepared Hitachi Machines; and 20 nr 13T Hitachi Machines. We have over 150 new large (up to 30T) machines coming in to MVK this year. Brian Kelly – Construction Director – O&W (Main Board) said “It is part of our continued growth and replenishment schedule, and we look forward to a really productive 2021”.
Thanks to Stephen Munt for sending in this superb picture taken whilst on a search for wildlife to photograph in Oxfordshire.
Please feels free to send in photos to whether you work for MVK or are an interested civilian!

These works are on behalf of many different clients and include groundworks for over 1,000 house, 4 apartment blocks and all the associated road and sewer works.
A site on which we are working has won a prestigious NHBC award.
Kirk Raine (David Wilson Homes Mercia) scooped the Large Builder category of the Pride in the job Supreme Award for the Doseley Park site in Telford.
We are proud to be associated with this and congratulate our operatives for their hard work and quality end product on the site.
We hope to continue working with DWH to collect many such prizes in the future
The use of drone footage is becoming an increasingly useful tool for M.V.Kelly.
By embracing this technology we can relay up to date progress to our clients with a level of detail not previously possible.
The drones can also be used for site security purposes and footage shared between departments.
Pictured here is a section of our Gallows Hill, Warwick project.
M.V.Kelly are working for the charity Betel UK on a project to build sheltered accommodation for 48 people requiring a community based recovery from addiction.
The job includes groundworks plus a new foul water treatment plant and associated soakaway.
Betel UK is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment.
Paul and Karen Whelan are supporting this charity throughout the build. Many M.V. Kelly suppliers have thankfully assisted Paul and Karen to allow their funding to travel further through the build process.
Pictured here are Chris Villers and his team in our Stafford offices.
As you can see all Covid precautions have been taken!

This week the B'ham office have had settings installed to monitor the amount of printing done on a daily basis. The information tells us how much we have printed and equates it to ecological and financial costs etc.
Hopefully having individual access to this data will encourage users to be more sensible with printer usage and make us that little bit greener.
As a company aware of its environmental responsibility M.V.Kelly Ltd have decided to offset the carbon footprint generated during our John O’Groats to Lands End charity challenge.
Participants needed to be transported to points in specific areas of the route either by minibus or aeroplane.

By contributing to a sustainable project such as these we hope to work towards reducing our Carbon Footprint over the coming years.
