Far North scaffolding is family owned and operated, established in 1995 when Peter McGilp the company founder moved back to his Northland home after many years working as a Construction Rigger and Scaffolder. Peter was determined not to bring big city and big site job attitudes to Northland, so he set about training to the highest industry standards local youths through the newly formed SARNZ industry training scheme, and a proper 3 year apprenticeship in Advanced Scaffolding.
Over the last 17 years these youths have grown into extremely sought after Scaffolders, some have moved onto bigger futures overseas and nationally. But with the same basic principles Peter insists on; honesty, politeness, well presented, helpful and probably the best "time and motion" value for money Scaffolders in the country.
Our non unionised workforce also provides for better service to our customers and conditions for our employees.
