History

History

Founded by Daniel Palmer-Jones as “Scaffolding Great Britain (SGB)” in 1919, SGB immediately launched a product called the ‘Universal Coupler’ which is still widely used in today’s scaffolding industry. Right from the start, SGB proved to be an innovative supplier to the construction trade. SGB is one of the industry’s best known and well respected names within the access services field.

SGB Hire in the Channel Islands was established in 1968.
