About the Springer Group

The Springer Group of Companies is a Kingston, Ontario-based property ownership, development, and management firm that specializes in high-quality, in-demand industrial, commercial and residential properties. We are a full-service firm that keeps all aspects of our management services in-house, ensuring responsive, individual service of superior quality.

An integral part of the economic and community fabric of the City of Kingston for five generations, The Springer Group of Companies has a well-earned reputation for service excellence, an insider’s understanding of the Limestone City, its heritage and its unique character, and an unparalleled acumen, experience, and level of achievement.

Under the visionary leadership of Samuel Springer, what would become the Springer Group of Companies began life as a Kingston retail ladies’ wear operation in the 1930s. He then got into the finance business, specializing in mortgages, before transitioning into the property development and management business in the 1960s. The next generation then picked up the mantle, as sons Jerry and Norman Springer took over the family firm, adopting their father’s prodigious work ethic, his encyclopedic knowledge of finance, of property development and his unique understanding of how to get things done in the City of Kingston.

Eventually Bryon and Doug Springer, sons of Jerry and Norman, would join the burgeoning family business and take hold of the reins, bringing a modern tone as they readily adopted innovative building, development and management techniques, while retaining the family’s respect for the charm, character and heritage of Kingston.

“Kingston is a great city. We’re happy and proud to play a small part in the growth and evolution of this community, helping to make it a better place not just for our own children and grandchildren, but for all families in Kingston.”
Bryon
