Countryside contract gives scaffolding provider elevated status

Scaffolding and access system provider, SGB, has revealed details of a new deal it has won from UK property developer, Countryside.

The four-year deal sees SGB appointed as the sole scaffolding provider to Countryside’s North West division, and carries a contract value in excess of £13 million.

Jason Milner, SGB’s business development manager, said: “We are extremely proud and excited to be partnering Countryside on these schemes. We currently have 23 live sites in progress with more set to follow, and this will make a great contribution to our planned growth strategy over the next four years.”

The Countryside work will be focussed on SGB’s Manchester depot. General manager Alan Arthur added: “We have proved to Countryside that we have the size, strength and capabilities that few other scaffolding providers, if any, can match, but which are essential to fulfil a major contract such as this.”

SGB has a well-established relationship with Countryside. In 2014 the company was chosen to be Countryside’s sole provider, under a two-year deal, which reportedly saw the volume of business grow to an annual order value of £3.5m.
