Scaffolding and special access provider Palmers Scaffolding UK Ltd is celebrating 100 years since it was incorporated as a business brand back in 1919.

A century ago this month, Palmers Scaffolding founder Edwin Palmer took the decision to transform the well-known scaffolding and access family business name into a company – formally founding it as the legal business structure it still is today.

Current CEO, Colin Butt said: “I am delighted to be involved in this marvellous anniversary and particularly to have returned ownership of this long established business to British hands.”

Palmers Managing Director, Donald Morrison added: “I wonder what hopes and dreams Edwin Palmer had when Palmers were incorporated 100 years ago; having been trading since 1880?

“Then, as now, I believe we have built a reputation for excellence in the provision of our services, working safely and with commitment to our clients. Of course we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this success without our whole team; past and present.

“We have really excellent staff retention rates as a business and are delighted to say more than 10% of our workers have over 15 year’s service with us. Here’s to the next 100.”

Ian McFarlane, Palmers Director of Business and Project Development added: ““Palmers is a trusted and historic scaffolding brand, whose employees are rightly proud to be associated with.

“Over the last century and beyond, we have established excellent, pre-qualified working relationships with some of the country’s leading clients & contractors who continually support us by awarding Palmers repeat business.

“And yet despite our rich heritage, at Palmers we are always looking forward to the most modern special access and scaffolding solutions. And we are actively supporting our employees and customers moving the Palmers brand forward by continuing to work to the very highest safety standards on some of the biggest, most important projects in Britain, now and for the foreseeable future.”
