Management reshuffle drives rapid growth for the TRAD Scaffolding Group

Trad Scaffolding


Following the acquisition of the TRAD Group in September 2013 by the International ALTRAD Group which has a 1 Billion Euros Turnover TRAD has experienced rapid growth across all three Companies in the TRAD Group resulting in a dynamic management re-structure becoming necessary.

Des Moore the Managing Director of TRAD Scaffolding for the past fifteen years is taking on the role of Group MD on a full time basis, this will enable Des to fully focus on orchestrating and managing the continued expansion of all three present Companies of the TRAD group being TRAD Hire & Sales Ltd, TRAD Safety Systems Ltd and TRAD Scaffolding Co Ltd over the coming years.

Neil Garner who previously held the position of Divisional Director of TRAD Scaffolding and who has risen through the ranks over the past twenty years has been promoted to Managing Director effective from the 1st of December 2014.

Peter McShane who has also risen through the ranks over the past twenty years with TRAD and previously held the position of Senior Contracts Manager has been promoted to the role of Divisional Director again effective from the 1st December. Peters Division is one of three Contracting Divisions in the TRAD Scaffolding Business the other two led by Chris Smith and Tony Mileham.

Hayden Smith Group Chairman and the founder of the TRAD Group commented:

“We have always believed in promoting from within our ranks and making the most of the talent we have, this allows us to retain continuity of performance and customer service and gives opportunity to people that want to push the boundaries to do even better.

With each TRAD Group Company outperforming their budgets the changes outlined in our restructure at TRAD Scaffolding allows Des to focus all of his four decades of experience in the Industry on managing the entire TRAD Group as opposed to just our scaffolding division, a role he has been actively performing very successfully for the past five years.

Des, Neil and Peter are all prime examples of the tight team that’s given TRAD the respect it now commands and I and the Board of Altrad wish them every success in their enhanced roles”.
