Building our offices & yard.   Tyseley, Birmingham, 2003.

Our history

The company was founded by father & son, Vince and John Kelly in the front room of the family home in 1995.  John was straight out of university & Vince was an ‘old-hand’ in the groundworks game.  Their  outlook, “employ only the very best staff & groundworkers, use only the best kit”.   This ethos has survived to this day. 


As the company grew over the years, they nurtured in-house talent, & took a long-term view by focussing on training & developing young professionals.  Over time, the Board of Directors expanded to include some outstanding individuals (nearly all trained in-house) who have grown the business whilst developing the company's systems alongside its original values.

And today

We remain a privately owned family company and partially due to this, we can focus on being a safe and high quality groundworker; and not one driven by (short term) “financial success”. Our growth is organic; funded through our own debt free investment and the career opportunities available through this growth is something we encourage and reward.

We successfully combine the personal approach of a family business whilst being large enough to ensure we easily fulfil the demands of the largest and most complex projects & the expectations of our client base.

Excellence in safety, standards and service are at the heart of everything we do. We have amassed a wealth of experience and expertise with many staff having served the company since day one. We continually source & train the best operatives and professional staff in all areas.
