The Only Solution!

Steve Dow

Company Director

Having covered all aspects of the scaffold trade over the last 28+ years from starting out as a lorry driver to being a qualified scaffolder then onto Contracts and Transport Manager for another company, Steve thought it time that he started his own company. When asked how he feels about his company he says " I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have made." 

Helen Dow

Company Director

Married to Steve for 28 yrs. Helen is also Office Manager and covers all aspects of office duties including quotes, invoicing and much much more! When asked about her job she says " I'm the bossy member of the team which is entirely warranted to keep the old man, Son, Daughter and sons in law in check. I'm the one that does the wages so they all keep me sweet. I cover a wide range of jobs and I actually enjoy my job!"

Raymond Wilcox

Senior Scaffolder

Ray is Helens son and has been scaffolding for 20+ years. We call him the gentle giant.

He always receives positive feedback for his politeness and workmanship.

Ray is a conscientious member of our team and this shows in his work ethic. 

Raymond is also passionate about photography.

Isaac Wallace

Isaac is the newest member of our team. As a close family friend he fits right into our close knit company. Coming from a boat building background Isaac is now looking forward to learning a new trade. 

Molly Bates 

Office Administrator

Our youngest daughter, married to Harry, has become our new Office Administrator. She spends the day helping Helen with all aspects of office duties. She also runs most areas of the firms Health & Safety.

Our family run business is our

livelihood, so giving the customer exactly what they need is very important to us.

We aim to change your opinion 

of scaffolders and provide a polite and efficient service which we hope will keep you coming back to us.

Starting up our own business, our work has been all from recommendations, which speaks for itself.
