The History of Novus
A Business Built on 124-Year Old Foundations
Novus has a rich heritage in construction – underpinned by strong family values and a resolute social conscience.
1960s - 1970s
Through hard work and strategic acquisition, the original small business grew into a much larger, diverse entity with separate divisions for construction, maintenance and plant hire.
In 2009 the business expanded into property maintenance and refurbishment services.
With this expansion came a name change to Seddon Property Services Ltd. which better reflected the diversification of the services the business now provided.
Following a reorganisation and restructuring of the Group in 2013, the John Seddon branch rebranded to become Novus Property Solutions Limited.
Today, the company operates as an independent trading entity but still under the ownership of the Seddon family.
The business is still governed and directed in accordance with those same strong family values and beliefs that George and John Seddon instilled into their company over a century ago. Today, Novus is led by fourth and fifth generation Seddon family members.
