History & Present Structure

The Kelsey family have operated as builders in North Lincolnshire for over 100 years. Arthur Benjamin Kelsey, opposite, established a contracting Company in Crowle, North Lincolnshire at the turn of the twentieth Century, working mainly for the District Councils, the Railway and local farmers.  Arthur Snowden Kelsey succeeded his father and continued the business until retirement in 1982.

After working as a Quantity Surveyor for several years, his son Geoffrey Snowden Kelsey established G.S. Kelsey Ltd in 1996 with the intention of providing Local Authorities throughout Northern Lincolnshire with a small, reliable, professional contractor capable of undertaking new builds, extensions and refurbishment work. Consequently, working for local authorities and public sector organisations has become a mainstay for the business and we continue to sit proudly on the approved list of contractors for North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Councils, as well as a selection of authorities bordering our county.

Due to significant public sector investment in Northern Lincolnshire from 2002 – 2008, the company expanded significantly, investing in apprentices and trainees, all of whom still work for the business today.

In the last ten years, G.S. Kelsey Ltd has widened its area of operation and client base to include Housing Associations, the Health & Care Industry, Motor Vehicle Dealerships and Ecclesiastical work with contracts ranging in value between £100 thousand to £5 million.

In 2010, Andrew Kelsey and Matthew Robinson were appointed as directors to run the business as Mr Geoffrey Kelsey retired. In June 2016, as part of the company’s continued growth and in celebration  of 20 years as a limited company, the new G.S. Kelsey Construction Ltd logo and brand was launched to reflect the fresh, strong identity of the larger company it has developed into today.
