Altrad NSG buys Bury rival

Scaffolding supplier Altrad NSG has acquired Bury-based Spectra Scaffolding for an undisclosed sum.

Spectra Scaffolding is an NASC accredited company which has been in operation for nine years, working across major construction projects, restoration, refurbishment and civil engineering project work. The firm holds preferred contractor status with firms such as Kier Construction and Morgan Sindall.

All 20 Spectra Scaffolding staff will transfer to Altrad NSG, which said there would be no job losses. Spectra Scaffolding was previously owned by directors Colin Dean, Alan McDonald and Kevin Jennings, who will continue to work in the business, which will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Altrad NSG from its current base in Bury.

Deeside-headquartered Altrad NSG works across the UK, providing specialist scaffolding and industrial access as well as insulation, painting, coatings, blasting and industrial cleaning.

Mike Carr, Altrad NSG managing director, said: "I am extremely pleased with this acquisition; the directors of Spectra Scaffolding have over 100 years' combined experience in the scaffolding industry. Their wealth of experience will further complement the offering of Altrad NSG to clients within the construction industry and other markets."

Spectra Scaffolding clients include National Trust and CTP.
