Denholm Industrial Services Acquires Scaffold Erection Services

Denholm Industrial Group, the Industrial Services Division of the Denholm Group, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Scaffold Erection Services Limited (SES). 

Based in Birmingham, SES is a 40-year-old family business that has been developed into a leading scaffolding service provider in the West Midlands by previous owners the Ward family and the SES management team, led by Managing Director Phil Heffernan.  

With a diverse client base across commercial and local authority organisations, the reputation that SES has for safety, quality, service and delivery is demonstrated in the level of repeat business secured by the company.  Its strength in the Midlands complements the footprint of Denholm Industrial Services’ scaffolding business, which has project offices in Scotland and the South of England.

Former owner of SES, Kevin Ward, who is also immediate past President of the National Access & Scaffolding Confederation, has put significant effort into driving forward standards in the scaffolding and access industry in general, and setting the standard at SES as an example of best practice.

John Denholm, Chariman and CEO of the Denholm Group said: “I am delighted we have been able to acquire SES.  The company is a natural fit with our industrial services business as we share the same ethic and focus on health and safety and there is no overlap between the operation of SES and the operation of Industrial Services.  In the process of the acquisition I have been impressed with Phil Heffernan and his management team and I have no doubt that they will be able to contribute to our wider industrial services businesses.  We welcome SES to the Group and look forward to working together and further growing SES in conjunction with Phil Heffernan and his team.“

Phil Heffernan, Managing Director of SES, will continue in his role following the acquisition.
