Kelvin Read - Director

Originally a sales rep selling thrust boring machines, Kelvin established KB Contractors with Brent in 1985. When he didn't have much luck selling the machines, but had drummed up a lot of business from possible end users, Kelvin saw a hole in the market so approached Brent to go into business with him.

Over the past 30 years, KB Contractors has kept up with the changes in technology, specifically the trenchless technology. The company has diversified as demand has grown and this has seen KB Contractors expand into avenues such as drainage and subdivisions throughout Otago and Southland.

Kelvin says KB Contractors has built up a great working relationship with clients and the City and Regional councils over the years and is now known as a one stop shop to complete all types of projects. Over the next 10 years, Kelvin says the company will "stick to it's knitting" and grow and follow the demand where ever it goes. 

Kelvin is a keen fisherman and is still involved in motorcross, where he met Brent all those years ago.
