The History of GBS

Established in 1994, in Cockermouth, West Cumbria as Gordon Building Services Ltd. Over the years the company has grown progressively in stature, experience and capability.GBS Groundworks

The Company's success is due to a unique blend of professionalism and family values; offering its clients open and honest access to personnel that you don't always find with large companys, whilst producing expertise and resources you gain from a national organisation. GBS has always had the target of client satisfaction at the forefront of its thoughts. The success of this policy continues to manifest itself in the amount of repeat business that is generated from the existing client base; without exception.

The success of the family business has led to progressive expansion, which has resulted in more diverse work being undertaken and the head office being relocated to Lakeland Business Park in Cockermouth, Cumbria and a further office established in Greater Manchester. From this established Northern root GBS has the capability to accomodate works throughout the North of England and South West of Scotland.

In January 2013 the organisation launched a rebrand and began trading as GBS. Developments included a new logo, new wrap design on vehicles, new branded work-wear for employees, and a new website. We continue to develop our media activity through social media streams: Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
