SIMIAN Turns 17

11th November 2022

This month the SIMIAN team is celebrating 17 years in business and what a 17 years it has been!

The business was established in 2005 by industry experts looking to make a real difference to the scaffolding sector through best practice training, consultancy, and inspections. With falls from height the leading cause of death within the construction industry, our founders wanted to ensure safer sites for current and future generations of scaffolders.

Simian turns 17

From our initial centre in Warrington, SIMIAN has expanded beyond expectation. Now with centres across the UK including London, Llangefni, Hertfordshire and Weston-Super-Mare, expert training is now more accessible to existing and prospective professionals than ever before. You can view our full list of construction training centres here.

Furthermore, in recent years we have taken our expertise beyond scaffolding and into the wider construction industry, covering a number of areas including roofing, lead sheeting, green skills and so much more.

Managing Director here at SIMIAN, Simon Hughes, has said:

“I couldn’t be prouder of where the business has come from to where we are today. We have worked tirelessly to ensure that the scaffolding and construction industries become a safer place both for the workforce and the wider general public. I can say with confidence that we have made a big difference through our training, consultancy, and inspection services for businesses across the UK.

But our work isn’t done! Not only are we continually training the next generation of professionals to join the industry in the best possible position by utilising best practice methods, but we are also working alongside the wider construction industry to build our training portfolio outside of scaffolding, and to ensure green skills are adopted to enable construction to successfully reach its goal of net zero by 2050.”

Here’s to the next 17! 🥂🍻
