The recent Layher Open Day held in Letchworth proved to be an excellent opportunity for visitors to learn about product developments, meet senior company personnel and hear a key presentation that addressed the important issue of safety.
“We were delighted that almost 120 scaffolding contractor guests were able to attend and meet with both our UK staff and senior management from our head office in Germany, including Principal Shareholder Georg Layher, International Managing Director Dr Helmut Kreller and International Sales Manager, Margot Hoffman,” comments Sean Pike, Layher UK’s Managing Director.
“A number of new products were showcased with particular focus on the Allround® Bridging System, the Allround® Shoring System and our Lightweight Cassette Roof. Alongside, we were delighted that Simon Hughes, Director of Simian Risk, was able to give a detailed presentation on SG4:10 Safety Guidance N° 4 – Preventing Falls in Scaffolding,” adds Sean Pike.
The event was also marked by Layher UK’s achievement of BSI accreditation ISO 9001:2008 – building on the accreditation held for many years by the company’s head office.
“It was a highly informative and enjoyable event and we are confident that the Open Day has enhanced our standing in the UK’s scaffolding market,” concludes Sean Pike.
