Gilray Plant Acquired by SP Group, Rebrands as SP Gilray


SP Group Has Secured Major Market Influence with Acquisition of Gilray Plant’s Name, to be Rebranded as ‘SP Gilray’

In a landmark move set to reshape the UK construction supply landscape, SP Group Global Ltd has announced the acquisition of Gilray Plant, one of the UK’s most venerable wholesale scaffolding suppliers.

The deal will see Gilray Plant rebranded as SP Gilray, signalling the merger of two industry powerhouses.

Sarah Wilson, Company Director and widow of Gilray Plant’s Managing Director Ralph Wilson, shared her enthusiasm about the acquisition. “Among other potential business partners, it was SP Group’s commitment to excellence that made this possible. Their unparalleled recycling scheme for most of their temporary protection products was a major factor in my decision to pass on the Gilray name to fellow NASC member SP Group. I have full confidence in SP Group to carry forward the legacy Ralph established, and I look forward to seeing what this new chapter unlocks.”

The strategic investment marks a significant expansion for SP Group, a leading supplier of temporary protection products based in Northern Ireland with over thirty years of experience in the UK and Irish markets.

Nick Munster, Managing Director of SP Group, echoed Wilson’s sentiment: “Gilray is well-known within the scaffold supplies sector and the UK construction industry. This opportunity will allow us to welcome a broader range of clients, from independent contractors to large international scaffolding firms. It’s an honor to uphold Gilray’s reputation for honesty, quality products, and excellent service, and we’ll strive to maintain it in recognition of Ralph’s dedication to the company.”

Tracey Law, SP Gilray Branch Manager and former Operations Manager at Gilray Plant, noted the seamless transition due to the company’s shared values. “Moving to SP Group has been easy because both companies share the same values and mutual commitment to delivering high standards in products and customer service.”


The transition from Gilray Plant to SP Gilray will begin in the coming weeks, allowing customers and partners time to adjust. Key changes include a new website, transitioning from to, while maintaining the same phone number at 01322 442006.

Both companies assure their customers that this merger aims to enhance the business, expand the product range, and most importantly, continue delivering the high level of customer service and product quality for which Gilray Plant is renowned. This commitment to excellence will remain at the core of our operations.
