Just a few details about some of our Directors…

Rob and Denise Shaw

Rob and Denise Shaw

Rob founded RBS Scaffolding back in 1987 when he was a 27-year-old Scaffolder with 10 years’ experience. After several years he was joined by his wife Denise who came from a corporate background and together they have developed a strong team bringing the company to where it is today.

Denise oversaw the office management and became a member of the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation training committee. Achieving numerous other trade accreditations soon followed. Rob continued to develop the operational capabilities of the business. By working outside, where he is happiest, he could pass on his expertise and passion to help build the great culture that RBS enjoys today.

RBS has been by far the largest training provider for new scaffolders in the area, producing hundreds of highly trained people over many years. Through their ethos of selecting, training and encouraging progression in their staff, Rob and Denise have now successfully stepped back from the business allowing the management in place to continue the high standards of customer service and reputation for safety they have built.
