Colley Farm Buildings Ltd

The history of Colley (Farm Buildings) Ltd

Colley (Farm Buildings) Ltd is a family business based in East Yorkshire on the outskirts
of the historical towns of Beverley and Driffield. The business was established over 50 years ago by Mr
Horace Colley who moved the picturesque village of Holme on the Wolds, he worked from Smithy Farm as
the village Blacksmith for numerous years. His son Norman Colley continued to grow the business and during
1998 he split the business in two, thereon trading as HW Colley & Son Ltd for the farm and cattle related
business and Colley (Farm Buildings) Ltd for the fabricating and steel frame buildings.

Colley(Farm Buildings) Ltd is now directed by Mr Paul Colley, from the work premises on Cranswick Industrial Estate,
Paul has been heavily involved with the growth of the business for over 20 years. Paul has many years experienced with drawing,
fabricating and erecting agricultural buildings. Paul is able to work on site with his staff, Paul wouldn’t ask a member of staff
to complete work that he isn’t happy to do or be involved with himself. Pauls hands-on approach to the business ensures that the
high standards he expects are met with each and every build or repair. Having an agricultural background ensures that
he understands the customer requirements,  optimally this helps to build the perfect working relationship.

We at Tonks would have no problem recommending Colley Farm Buildings Ltd to anybody as the work, skill and craft is a pleasure to see.
Mr Richard Webster & Mr James Webster, Tonks Removals Ltd 

Colley Farm Buildings Ltd built the biomass building that we needed to house our new straw fired boiler, a renewable energy solution for our glass house growing business. We found Colley’s to be professional and delivered a prompt service. I was impressed with the way in which the project was carried out especially as it was poor weather conditions and access was difficult. We found that Colley’s offered us flexibility and understanding with our requirements in order to complete the job.
Mr M De-Lang, Mill Nurseries, Keyingham

We chose Colley’s as Paul was easy to deal with, his upfront honest approach suited our requirements. Paul understood that he needed to work around the day to day running of our business, which he achieved with no problems. Colley’s provide an efficient service, working to a high standard, at a very competitive price. We would not hesitate to use them again.
