Safway Group Announces Major New Multiservice Contracts


Waukesha, Wis., November 3, 2014 – Safway, a leading provider of access and industrial services (including scaffold, insulation, fireproofing and coatings), has been awarded two additional new multi-million dollar contracts for the delivery of multiservices. “We continue to accelerate our growth in the delivery of multiservices with an emphasis on improved safety, increased productivity and lower costs,” said Gary Duncan, Safway’s senior vice president in charge of Operational Excellence. He noted that these are just two recent new contracts in addition to numerous other multiservice projects across North America.

A Canadian integrated petroleum company awarded Safway Canada a five-year, $50M per year, contract for full SIP (Scaffold, Insulation and Painting) services at three refineries.

In addition, an American multinational chemical corporation and one of the largest chemical manufacturers worldwide has contracted with Safway for a bundle of nine projects to be executed at four different chemical facilities located in Texas and Louisiana for an estimated value of $150M over a three-to-four year period. Safway will provide insulation, fireproofing, painting and related access solutions.

“Safway’s objective on these projects is the same as it is on every job,” said Duncan. “Our number one value is always safety. We want to set the standard for safety in the industry. Our goal is to execute the safe, seamless delivery of multiservices with world-class performance in a way that provides significant value to our customers.”

Duncan became the senior VP in charge of Operational Excellence in July 2014. With over 17 years of experience and success in the delivery of excellence at jobsites throughout Safway’s West Division, Duncan is ideally-suited to his new role. “Our customers operate in extremely competitive markets,” explains Duncan. “In my new role, I am constantly looking to create efficiencies. I focus on safety first and foremost, productivity, and bottom-line costs. Planning and communication on every level is critical.”
