Launched in 1937 by Ben Bailey himself, Mexborough-based Ben Bailey Plc was Yorkshire's largest independent house builder, developing more than 700 homes a year when acquired by Gladedale in 2007.
Following the takeover and a subsequent rebrand, the Ben Bailey name disappeared completely from the construction industry. However in 2017, Jon Bailey - grandson of Ben Bailey and now director and board member at Conroy Brook - and his fellow directors decided to approach the current owners and ask to buy back the name.
The deal was done and now Ben Bailey is firmly in the Conroy Brook Group fold, and in 2018 launched its first development - HighFields in Clowne, Derbyshire.
Jon Bailey said: "The whole Bailey family is delighted to see Ben Bailey Homes return under the ownership of a private family-owned company which has a customer focused culture and a track record of building top quality homes in Yorkshire."
Established in 1996, in 2017 the Conroy Brook Group celebrated 21 years of developing outstanding, craftsman-built developments with a focus on superior quality and consistently high standards.
Ben Bailey Homes has a long and rich housebuilding heritage from its beginnings in Mexborough in 1937, to its sale in 2007, and subsequent re-acquisition ten years later by Ben Bailey’s grandson Jon.
