This Liverpool-based scaffolding supplier is run by chairman and chief executive George Roberts, 63, who founded the company in 1992. The firm also supplies staircases, safety equipment and temporary roofs, and exports to six continents. Profits climbed to £3.2m in 2014, helped by strong demand from the housebuilding sector and expansion of its sales and marketing team, which moved into a new, purpose-built office building last year.
