Our Story

From family business to industry leader

BFT is a family business that began back in 1997. We started out in scaffolding. It even gave us our name: BFT stands for Boards, Fittings and Tubes.

But this old way of working at height wasn’t enough for us. Client demands were changing – yet scaffolding wasn’t evolving. We knew it would always be slow to erect and dismantle. Always be awkward to transport. And always limit our ambition.

That’s when we spotted the enormous potential in mastclimbing. 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 Mastclimbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) at the highest levels of MCWP safety to public and private sites across the UK. Five times more efficient than traditional scaffolding, we’re proud that our MCWP design work has saved businesses thousands of project hours each year.

BFT. The byword for quality

Today our scale and capability has never been bigger. By pumping in excess of £20 million into our business in recent years, we’ve built easily the UK’s biggest machinery fleet and nationwide coverage, complemented by recent investment in GP hoist platforms. This makes us the undisputed UK leader in MCWPs.

And while scale matters, high standards mean even more. We’re proud to repeatedly set the industry bar for fleet quality, safety and training.

Needless to say, we’re not stopping here. It’s our duty as market leader to advance the industry, drive innovation, maintain safety and keep delivering time and cost savings to clients all over the UK. Why not be one of them?
