In our drive to be a sustainable business we recognise that the impact of what we do goes far beyond the physical build. How we behave, how we treat others in our work and public communities, how we learn, develop and innovate has far reaching impacts on society.
After the food industry, we have both the privilege and the responsibility of representing arguably the most important and influential industry in touching and moulding people’s lives. No other industry has the opportunity to shape, influence, and make such a difference. By constantly pushing the boundaries, allowing ourselves to imagine, dream and solve problems, we fulfil our purpose to improve people’s lives.
At A Glance
We are a developer, a builder, civil engineering and property maintenance business with a different approach. Delivering that difference comes from consistently living and breathing our values and behaviours and creating far reaching benefits to our customers and their end users; delivery with a difference that adds value by:
- Improving people lives as a solution provider that creates value, reduces risk and simplifies governance.
- Delivering a good quality product with reliable delivery, more agile operations and assured quality.
- Making the project experience easy, being efficient to work with through customer focussed ways of working.
- Optimising the performance of our customers’ assets, being effective to work with, focussed on outcomes, continually learning and improving.
Put simply everyone in every role at Osborne has the opportunity to deliver a very special and different approach to our customers, influencers, suppliers, end users and the general public. Thus ensuring that our long-term thinking is always driving our short-term behaviours and decisions
“I am clear that we have something very special to offer; a professional construction service combined with truly caring about our customers”
Andy Steele, Chief Executive – Osborne
Osborne was founded in 1966 in Chichester by Geoffrey Osborne. A civil engineer by training, Geoffrey Osborne believed that if you did your very best for your customers and treated them fairly they would trust you and treat you fairly in return. Sadly he’s no longer with us, but we’re proud to uphold his beliefs and values and to be part of something special. The Osborne family remain our shareholders. Andrew Osborne became Chairman of the Group in 2012 having joined the company in 1998.
Our vision recognises that in order to position ourselves as the very best choice for our customers we have to constantly innovate to drive increasing productivity and services for customers and the end users of their assets.
First and foremost we know that our work is about people. Projects and contracts, no matter how straightforward, will only succeed if our teams form successful partnerships with our customers and suppliers. Our technical specialists are chosen not just for their skill and hard work, but for their ability to understand what is important to each individual customer; to think on their feet, solve problems and deliver the vision, not just the contract.
We are pleased to report that Osborne has had another successful year and we continue our progress towards our strategic objective of being a more sustainable business. We continue to invest in the structure and talent within our organisation to increase our efficiency, improve the quality of our services and products and further simplify our governance procedures.

Our vision and values underpin everything we do. We seek to be progressive in our approach so that we help you succeed. To achieve this we have an enthusiasm for innovation, not for the sake of it, but to find new and better ways of unlocking and delivering value. Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes, informed by ideas drawn from our people, our supply chain partners and our customers. We have invested in technology to make this as simple as possible, using our IO (Improvement Opportunities) app. This approach generates thousands of opportunities every year.
