ROB LYNCH CEO

History

Looking at the evolution of Lyndon SGB explains much of the philosophy behind the success of the business.

The founders, Tommy and Paddy Lynch established Lyndon Scaffolding in 1968. Both brothers were scaffolders for over 20 years. As a result they have a total understanding of what it takes to operate a successful scaffolding business at the sharp end.

Lyndon Scaffolding remained a family owned and run business until the end of 2018.

Now Lyndon Scaffolding has combined with SGB to become Lyndon SGB by BrandSafway and is part of the largest access brand in the world.

As such, it is able to plan for the long term rather than be driven by short term market demands. Lyndon SGB has been profitable throughout its history and each year it has reinvested significantly into the business. It directly owns all its equipment, transport and depots, operational assets which would cost over £35 million to replace.

Each regional manager, contract manager and supervisor is an experienced and trained scaffolder and has practical knowledge of how to do the work, and training to ensure that it can be delivered on time, on budget and without incident.

Everything Lyndon Scaffolding does is aimed at providing the best temporary access possible. The objective as Lyndon SGB is to make the combined business the best provider of temporary access in all regions of the UK. 

Our people

It doesn’t matter how many mission statements or visions a management team produces – if the scaffolders aren’t capable, or simply don’t care, they will never provide a reliable high quality service.

Lyndon SGB is in a uniquely privileged position. Lyndon uses only directly employed, fully trained employees. The vast majority of Lyndon SGB’s competition relies either entirely or substantially on a nomadic sub contract work force that will leave site as soon as a better offer appears.

Lyndon has a highly qualified work force with scaffolders qualified in PTS, BESC, Asbestos training, first aid, …the list goes on and on…

It is an essential part of our ethos that the senior management positions are held by experienced scaffolders. Knowledge and experience of scaffolding is at the centre of everything we do.
