Why We Rebranded

Health & Safety


Health & Safety has been at the core of George Roberts Ltd business from day one. We take a ‘safety first’ approach and pride ourselves on our holistic view of employees, operations, and our supply chain.

We also play an active role in helping to improve the wider industry, through industry forums and trade associations, such as our membership of the NASC (National Access & Scaffolding Confederation), where we are members of the Hire, Sales & Manufacturing Committee.  Membership of this association requires regular audits of our systems, processes, and safety records, providing our customers and partners with peace of mind that our products and services meet the highest possible standards.

We deliver thousands of tonnes of equipment to sites all over the UK, and indeed the world, always with consideration for the high-risk nature of the sectors we are supporting.   We cultivate a positive health and safety attitude by promoting a “work safe, home safe” approach to ensure people think and act responsibly.

Our primary focus is that our people and our customers work safely and go home to their loved ones each day.

Sustainability – a legacy approach

We pride ourselves on being a responsible company.  Our colleagues alongside our national and global supply chain partners are dedicated to delivering a responsible and sustainable framework that will provide a positive legacy for the future.  Our commitment to the environment doesn’t just end at how we manufacture and supply, it extends to how we responsibly dispose of waste to ensure that all materials are recovered and recycled as much as possible.

Founded in 1992, George Roberts (NW) Ltd has always been a trusted name in the scaffolding industry. We started with the simple sale and hire of traditional scaffolding equipment, and in the past 25 years have branched out and become a flexible and innovative modern company.

We have since built a strong reputation for selling and hiring a range of light access products like aluminium towers, lightweight stagings and general builders’ plant such as props, trestles, road-forms and other related items within the industry.

The company has continued to evolve and is now a global household name in the market, achieving this status by widening our reach, increasing our product offering and diversifying into other sectors.
