B. W. May & Son was founded in 1960 by Bert May and his son Len May. They were later joined by Bill Chapell, (Carpentry & Joinery) & Terry Upton (Brickwork) to form B. W. May & Son Limited in 1971.
The idea of joining together was that they could draw on each others pool of skilled operatives to deliver a more effective business within the housing sector.

Following the first consortium in 1971, there were a number of shareholder changes, but most significant was the buy in from the current Managing Director, Andrew Spice in 1988, who was the nephew of the original owner Bill Chapell.
