A SCAFFOLDING firm working throughout Yorkshire has come out top in a business contest.
Crossway Scaffolding (Elland) Ltd was the winner of the Business of the Month award run by Huddersfield law firm Eaton Smith and the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
Operations director John Gallagher and colleagues from the winning company were presented with the award at the High Street offices of Eaton Smith.
Crossway Scaffolding was launched in 1996 by managing director Steve Fearnehough. Since then, he has led its expansion into a business with annual sales exceeding £2.5m.
The company has built a considerable reputation for quality of service, working on a variety of projects with clients ranging from small builders, medium-sized companies and national construction groups.
Mr Fearnehough has implemented an innovative method of achieving safer ways of working, using higher grade steel and reducing scaffold tube length and weight.
Crossway also has close ties with Van Thiel, a Dutch scaffolding manufacturer.
