Bradley Kelly is Growing!

Bradley Kelly is over 35 years young…and continues to grow.

Well, more like expand.

This has especially been the case since the addition of our electrical division early in 2017 which specializes in electrical installations, high-voltage installations, and electrical maintenance and commissioning services.

To support growth in the electrical division we are thrilled to have Shawn Best as our VP of Electrical and Ed Malek as Electrical Project Manager who combined have over 40 years experience in the industry.

We’ve also recently moved to a new site at 1027 Moodie Drive—just two doors down from where we were before, but a larger location where we can have our yard and shop all together.

Since joining BK six years ago, our President, Bob Brennan, has lead the growth of the business. His vision was to expand our services, including creating the electrical division.

Given all our recent activity and the strengthening of the business, Bradley Kelly is obviously heading in the right direction.

But we’re not stopping here. We have many more plans for the future. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to expand our presence and services in the Ottawa region!

Bradley Kelly Sponsors The “Original Beautiful Game”

You may never have heard of Gaelic Football, but we at Bradley Kelly are big fans!

So big, in fact, that we are platinum-level annual sponsor of the Ottawa Gaels youth program.

Now that we have recently rebranded, the new Bradley Kelly logo is featured prominently on the front of more than 100 kids’ jerseys. Plus, we help support the youth program financially by purchasing equipment and making it easier for them to attend the Continental Youth Championships.

So what is Gaelic Football, anyway?

Known as the “original beautiful game,” it is Ireland’s most popular spectator sport: combining skills from soccer, volleyball, football, basketball, and the speed of some of the world’s fastest sports.

Given our company’s (and founders’) Irish heritage, it only makes sense that we would sponsor an organization promoting Gaelic games and culture.

Here are some interesting tidbits about Gaelic Football in Ottawa:

  • The ball used is round and covered in soft leather, similar to but a bit heavier than a volleyball
  • This round-ball game requires 15 athletes per team to line up across the full field—that’s 30 players on the field at once!
  • It is one of the few remaining amateur sports worldwide with players, coaches and managers prohibited from receiving payment
