Marley Eternit has recently acquired the highly reputed timber manufacturer, John Brash & Co, adding scaffolding solutions to its unparalleled roofing systems offering.

The combined £200m business brings together two complementary companies, both of which are influential players with highly regarded reputations in the UK construction market.

David Speakman, Managing Director at Marley Eternit, comments: “For Marley Eternit, this is the latest step in our strategy to affirm our brand leadership position, delivering on our innovation credentials and providing a total construction system solution to deliver real value to our customers. The addition of high quality scaffold boards to our offer is part of this comprehensive solution.

“Although construction sites face stringent health & safety requirements, the quality of scaffold boards can sometimes be overlooked. However, they are very important for protecting workers and the range now offered by Marley Eternit is of the highest quality to provide the greatest levels of safety.”

The Kitemarked graded timber scaffold boards from Marley Eternit are recognised as the premier scaffold board and the range available includes JB Firesafe – a fire retardant option. All boards go through a process of stringent testing to ensure they are fully compliant with BS 2482.
