Kee Safety has announced an exciting new venture whereby four of its Scottish-based businesses have merged into one premier fall protection company.
This will allow the leading global supplier of fall protection solutions and safety railing systems to create new employment opportunities, invest in innovative technologies and deliver a more efficient and effective operation.
As of Tuesday 1 September, the four businesses – Roof Edge Fabrications, The Roof Anchor Company, W.H. Maintenance and APS Safety Systems – will trade under APS Safety Systems Ltd and will operate out of a facility in Glasgow.
The APS Safety System team will combine employees from all four companies, resulting in one highly skilled and knowledgeable team.
Customers will have access to a larger product range, including fall protection systems, guardrails, walkway solutions and fixed access products.
Brian McLean, General Manager of APS Safety Systems, expressed his excitement at the merger: “Built on 10 years of success, APS Safety Systems’ reputation is based on quality and safety.
“This, combined with the ‘Separate People from Hazards’ philosophy that all Kee Safety companies abide by, makes us confident that this new structure will benefit existing and new employees, clients, and our supply chain and will allow us to continue our sales growth across Scotland.”
Part of the Kee Safety Group, APS Safety Systems specialises in the design, installation and maintenance of fall protection and access systems.
The company offers a range of planned and preventative maintenance services to ensure that buildings and asset portfolios remain in the best possible condition.
Operating across sectors such as industrial, education, commercial and retail, residential and health, APS Safety Systems assist clients at every stage of their project, from expert advice at the outset, through installation to on-going maintenance.
