Kevin Neeposh and Simon Bégin first met in 2006. Subsequent to this meeting, both contractors elected to join forces and create a new corporate partnership.
Between 2006 and 2009, Kevin and Simon learned to know one another by working together on a few renovation and construction projects on the Cree territory of Mistissini. Following completion of these projects and, as great results had been achieved, they founded a construction company operating on the Cree territories of Northern Québec.
In order to reach this common goal, Mr. Neeposh and Mr. Begin created 9210-5170 Québec Inc. on June 3, 2009 with its head office located in Mistissini, in the judicial district of Abitibi. The company operates under the name KESI Construction to facilitate internal and external communications.
From 2009 to 2011, KESI Construction and Entreprises Simon Bégin Inc. entered into a partnership agreement which allowed them to launch their business and perform a few construction and renovation projects for Cree nations.
In 2011, KESI Construction was officially recognized as an independent construction contractor in good standing with the required permits, licenses and authorizations, thereby becoming one of the first aboriginal construction companies legally constituted and able to perform any kind of construction work on the territory.
