Major Scaffolding Companies Merge
BrandSafway’s acquisition of Lyndon Scaffolding resulted into the merge of two major UK scaffolding companies. Lyndon Scaffolding will be combined with BrandSafway’s scaffolding and access company SGB to become Lyndon SGB.
“This is an exciting combination. It allows us to bring together a full range of scaffolding solutions — plus deliver excellence in a suite of other access technologies for our customers. By combining the assets, expertise and reputation of Lyndon Scaffolding with SGB, we will be able to expand our service solutions in key major cities in the UK, broaden our overall footprint and accelerate our growth,” explained Dave Witsken, president of Energy and Industrial for BrandSafway.
Robert Lynch, CEO of Lyndon Scaffolding, also commented on the acquisition: “We look forward to being on the same team with SGB. SGB is one of our industry’s best-known and well-respected names. By working together and sharing our expertise and best practices, Lyndon SGB will be able to offer customers more products and services and improved solutions.”
Having worked on some the UK’s largest projects, Lyndon Scaffolding’s portfolio includes JubileeBridge at Runcorn, BBC Broadcasting House, Tate Britain, Severn Bridge, Birmingham Gateway Station, Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, and the Scottish Parliament Building.
Mick Herke, managing director of Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services in Europe, thinks that this is a smart move for Lyndon SGB, as it will gain access to more locations and greater depth of expertise, resulting in improved customer service. “Both Lyndon Scaffolding and SGB are strong companies with an emphasis on excellent quality and service. Together as Lyndon SGB, we can create more value for clients,” Mick concluded.
