Acquisition provides expansion opportunity in Central Midwest
WAUKESHA, Wis., December 15, 2015 – In a move toward continued expansion of its business in the Midwest, Safway Group Holding LLC is announcing the acquisition of All-American Scaffold, effective December 12, 2015. All-American Scaffold provides scaffolding, swing stages and shoring to a diverse customer base in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. “All-American Scaffold is a significant player in the Midwest,” said Jeff Sprau, Safway’s US Division President. “We have similar operating philosophies, with a commitment to understanding customer needs and exceeding expectations. By working together, we will be able to provide comprehensive coverage in Iowa and throughout the central region.”
All-American Scaffold was formed in 1984 in Des Moines, Iowa. Known for quality, performance, and reliability, All-American Scaffold has grown to three locations in Iowa – Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport – and one in Kansas City, Kan. By joining Safway, All-American Scaffold will be able to deliver expanded services and products, which will create new growth opportunities for everyone who is part of the company.
Moving forward, the company will operate as All-American Scaffold, A Safway Group Company, an independent business under the Safway Group umbrella. All-American Scaffold customers will be able to work with their current contacts and get the same personal attention they are accustomed to receiving. While at the same time, All-American Scaffold customers will now be able to take advantage of a wider range of products and services. This includes advanced engineering, project management and training as well as a larger and broader inventory of equipment, from mast climbers and transport platforms, to QuikDeck®, QuikShield® and HAKI® access and weather protection systems, offered exclusively through Safway Group.
