Who Are We
From Scaffolding Family Business To Mast Climber Industry Leader
BFT is a mast climber family business that began as a scaffolding company back in 1997. This helped create the name: BFT standing for Boards, Fittings and Tubes.
But this old way of working at height wasn’t enough. Client demands were changing but scaffolding wasn't. We knew it would always be slow to erect and dismantle, awkward to transport and always limit our ambition.
That’s when we spotted the enormous potential in mast climbers. The second we realised the speed and savings benefits over scaffolding, we knew this was the future. And that we were the ones to lead it.
For more than ten years, we’ve been proving the commercial benefits of Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) to public and private sites across the UK. Five times more efficient than traditional scaffolding, we’re proud to use MCWPs to save businesses thousands of project hours each year.
