How we work

TRAD Scaffolding Company has a flat management structure headed by Neil Garner our Managing Director, who oversees the three operating divisions. This is a unique and very successful operating structure as each division is autonomous with its own staff in all key positions; each having its own long-standing customer base that it serves faithfully.

The benefit of this business model is that it enables key staff to make quick decisions as they report directly to Neil Garner without having to rely on a weighty corporate infrastructure for approval. This also ensures they can maintain close links with their customers, working with them wherever they are needed, rather than handing a project over to another division for geographical reasons, which can often happen in large contracting operations.

TRAD’s management teams, from Divisional Directors to Contracts Managers and Contracts Supervisors, have been promoted through the ranks within our company, giving them a real understanding and knowledge of every aspect of scaffolding business via the TRAD perspective, which is tried, proven and fit to meet the challenges set by modern day building methods and our goal of making the industry incident and accident free.
