Construction Equipment & Contractors

About Us

The Kelly Group has spent decades learning how to best serve our industrial customers and building a skillset that allows our clients to rely on us to perform when they need it most.

We provide construction and fabrication services to some of the largest companies in the world, including multiple Fortune 250 companies in various industries — food processing, heavy equipment manufacturing, agribusiness, aerospace, steel production and others.

Kelly General Construction Co. of Decatur was founded in 1983 as a general contractor and sheet metal fabricator serving industrial customers in Decatur, Illinois. Eleven years later, Kelly Construction of Indiana, Inc., opened in Lafayette, expanding our ability to serve companies in the Midwest and providing a focus on precision metal fabrication.

We’ve since rebranded as The Kelly Group and added two other locations — in Reserve, Louisiana, along the Mississippi River, and Marion, Arkansas, just outside Memphis, Tennessee.

Whether it’s capital work, a planned outage or everyday maintenance, The Kelly Group is well-suited to deliver quality results for your construction needs. In addition to project management and design-build capabilities, Kelly can self-perform most phases of construction. And with a team of experienced fabricators and recently expanded facilities, Kelly is ready to turn around any type of custom fabrication project.
