George Roberts Scaffolding and Access Products

Reliable service for the offshore industry
Our reputation for service, quality, price and customer satisfaction is supported by the belief that the most important assets we have as a business are the clients we support and serve. Maintaining and improving our reputation will remain the key to future investment in the people and infrastructure of the company, and to further strengthen our position as the first-choice provider of access equipment.
Scaffolding and access materials
With a product range of more than 2,500 items and in excess of 15,000t of equipment available immediately for both sale and hire, we have the capacity to meet the most demanding schedules and requirements on all types of scaffolding and access materials. From traditional tube, fittings and boards, to system scaffolds, falsework support systems, alloy beams, temporary roofs and much more, we truly are the one-stop-shop for all access requirements.
Quality assurance for offshore operation
Supplying the best-quality products available is essential to meet the requirements of an increasingly health and safety-conscious scaffolding and access industry. In recognising this, the company has successfully achieved accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 with regards to all of our quality management systems, and we are planning to implement ISO 180001 and ISO 140001 in the near future. All products supplied by the company conform to current UK and European standards, with certification available to all our customers.
Customers in the offshore sector
Currently supplying many major onshore and offshore oil and gas companies worldwide, together with nuclear power, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as many major construction and scaffolding contractors, our customer base is continuing to grow. We are proud to provide our services and support to all our clients and look forward to doing so for many years to come. Please visit our website or contact us directly for more information.
Scaffolder software and design engineers
As a company, we have invested heavily in the latest software to offer our team members the widest range of tools available to correctly help and advise our clients. We use the latest version of the SMART Scaffolder software from CADS, which is fully compliant with the NASC’s TG20:13 guidance.
Our technical department has many years of experience within the industry, however for more complex projects we retain the services of a range of fully qualified design engineers, thereby ensuring we provide the best and most up-to-date advice available.
Export services for scaffolding projects
We have a dedicated shipping agent that deals with all our worldwide exports and can arrange delivery to any country in the world, from parcels to multiple container loads. We can take care of the full export process for you, from loading the containers to delivery to a nominated port of entry in your country. Although we keep our clients’ details in the strictest of confidence, you can be assured we supply major contractors in the UK, western Africa, Malta, Cyrpus, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, as well as North and South America.
Our clients work in construction and infrastructure projects, oil, gas and nuclear sectors, shipbuilding, onshore and off shore projects, FPSO projects and domestic scaffolding. We have recently shipped more than 508t of equipment to a large multinational client working in western Africa. This customer has placed many orders with us of this size and each order is delivered swiftly and accurately to meet their needs.
Our orders are supplied under Incoterms 2010, most commonly FCA (free carrier), CFR (carriage and freight), CIF (carriage, insurance and freight), DAP (delivery at place) and DAT (delivery at terminal).
We can provide full documentation depending on the destination country, such as SONCAP for Nigeria and Arab/British certificates of origin for the Middle East. We have close ties with the local chamber of commerce, which enables us to help and advise with the consular requirements of your country.
Safety and quality for the offshore market
We are very proud to have just been awarded ISO9001-2008 accreditation from the British Standards Institute, which further cements our place as the leading independent supplier of scaffolding and access products, thereby ensuring you receive the highest level of service and highest-quality products available.
We pride ourselves on safety, not only in the workplace (we have had no near-miss incidents since recording began), but also in driving forwards safety standards within the industry through innovative products and services, as well as in the way we accept equipment into stock, store stock and dispatch stock to clients. We have instigated multipoint checking procedures throughout our product range, which exceeds the industry standards and ensures our clients receive the best-quality products every time.
