Blencowe Scaffolding Ltd has invested into it’s future by purchasing new Layher system scaffolding, creating a new division for the growing firm.

Blencowe Scaffolding Limited, whose head office is based in Salisbury, today announced that they will have a new division within the company to handle the recently purchased scaffold system, named Modern Access.

The newly named division, Modern Access within Blencowe Scaffolding, will focus on expanding their current customer database and attracting new customers with a view to working on more special projects throughout Southern England.

Blencowe Scaffolding have trained members of their team to specifically use the new Layher system scaffold and each trained individual will head up a team of their own to roll-out any projects using system scaffold.

The Layher system is centred on a highly versatile ‘rosette’ welded onto each tube that can safely and securely accommodate eight individual connections. Irrespective of height, the scaffolding can be constructed in three dimensions from each rosette. Ledgers or transoms can be connected at right angles as well as the option of different options.

The system is constructed from aluminium material which means that it is low in weight, easy to transport and handle as well as being fully integrated with current health and safety regulations and runs parallel with the safety roll-out from NASC and CSIRS.

Alan Blencowe who is responsible for heading up the new system within the family company says, ‘This is an exciting time for us at Blencowe Scaffolding, not only does it allow us to tender for projects that require a delicate approach, it will also allow us to widen the breadth of products that we can offer existing and new clients and allow us to grow within today’s economy’.

Pat Blencowe, CEO of Blencowe Scaffolding commented, ‘We celebrated 50 years of business last year (2014) and our business has survived 3 recessions. It is imperative to invest in our future and in our work force which is why we chose the system scaffold from Layher UK. It wasn’t an easy decision to make as the investment was so large, but we knew it was the right direction to head in. We’re looking forward to that path that the new system scaffold can lead us!’
