SGB officially returns to the industry


SGB launches new website, firmly highlighting the return of a once legendary industry giant.

The launch of a new website has heralded the return of one of the scaffolding industry’s most recognisable names. After an absence of some 3 years, the website – – marks the return of the SGB name to the commercial scaffolding and access market.

Established in 1919, SGB went on to become one of the industry’s best known and respected names within the access services field, before becoming part of Harsco Infrastructure in 2009. Following the subsequent merger of Harsco Infrastructure and Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services, the decision was taken to reintroduce the SGB name – a move which has re-focussed attention on the wealth of scaffolding and access expertise available from the company.

 “The new SGB website firmly reinforces that message,” says Kevin Fitzpatrick, UK Head of SGB. “It also highlights the tremendous emphasis that we place on safety by including details of the various safety organisations  were are members of. These include the Construction Health and Safety Group, the British Standards Institute and the British Safety Council.

“Visitors to the site can also find full details of the contracting, hire, sales and training services we offer. That includes information on our wide range of products, including our traditional tube and fitting scaffolding and our CUPLOK®modular system, plus details of our MastclimbersTM and light access solutions.” 

The wealth of industry expertise which lies behind the SGB name is another key focus of the website. “It explains how we can provide both general and technical guidance on such areas as access project planning and logistics,” adds Kevin. “This ensures that our customers not only benefit from the most effective solution for their project, but that they do so while complying with the latest guidelines, regulations and policies on such critical areas as health and safety.”
