Denholm Industrial Group Acquires Elite Scaffolding

Denholm Industrial Group, the industrial services divisional entity of J. & J. Denholm Limited, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Elite Scaffolding (SW) Ltd.  The acquisition extends Denholm Industrial Group’s operational capacity in access services in the South of England.

Based in Yeovil, Elite Scaffolding provides scaffolding and containment services across the south west of England.  Operating in complementary new construction and building refurbishment markets, the acquisition of Elite Scaffolding enables Denholm Industrial to fully extend its access services across house building, small works, civil infrastructure, large construction and building maintenance projects in the south of England.

Denholm Industrial Group Managing Director Steve Hill said: “The acquisition of Elite Scaffolding is a natural fit for Denholm Industrial.  The relationships that Elite Scaffolding has fostered with its customers are based on the quality and consistency of its services, while its health and safety record is exemplary.  By combining our capabilities and shared work ethos, we are able to provide scaffolding and access service solutions across southern England.”

Elite Scaffolding Director Neil Evans said: “The acquisition by Denholm Industrial marks the next phase of the Elite Scaffolding brand.  I am proud of the reputation Elite has built among its customers in the South West.  Now that we are part of Denholm Industrial – which is itself part of a larger family-run group – we have the ability to extend across the south of England.  Crucially for me, the operating standards, customer-focussed culture, and commitment to health and safety of Denholm Industrial mirror those of Elite Scaffolding.”

The acquisition of Elite Scaffolding by Denholm Industrial follows its previous acquisition in May 2016 of Scaffold Erection Services (SES), the Birmingham-based access and scaffolding company.
