Our History

Our company has a long history which began when the Cheshire Scaffold Company, based in Manor Lane Hawarden, was established in 1971.

Initially servicing local building and roofing contractors the company employees worked diligently to create a reputation throughout Cheshire and beyond for the level of service and technical capability the company was able to deliver.

As the geographic area covered expanded, the company decided that it was appropriate to change the name of the business to North Scaffold Group in 1978, the acronym which remains today. It was at this time the company moved to premises on Deeside Industrial Park.

The company continued with its growth and success and in 1993 it diversified its activities to include insulation, surface preparations and painting, asbestos removal and cleaning.

To reflect the range of services provided the company changed its name to NSG Services Group.

Following the sale of the company in 1998 by the last of the three founders, the company experiences a period fluctuating stability. The company changed ownership a number of times before being acquired in 2011 by Altrad SA.

The acquisition, by one of the world’s leading industrial services groups, provides long term vision for the business.

Since being part of the Altrad Group, the company has achieved continued growth through a commitment to excellent customer service and safety.
