Who We Are

Established in 1897, Seddon has come a long way growing from a small family business to a national company employing over 700 people. But we’ve never lost sight of what really matters. To us, building relationships is as important as building buildings.

The reason for our continued success can be summed up in one simple word: TRUST. Our customers know that when we make a promise, we keep it. That’s what sets Seddon apart. It’s what our business was founded on and it remains the cornerstone of everything we do today.

“From the outset, the ‘family’ feel and pride in your work was apparent.”
