SMS Group Services has become the primary distributor of HAKI scaffolding products in Western Australia.
HAKI is a market-leading Swedish scaffolding company with over 60 years’ experience engineering their ‘systems of work’ – a range of innovative temporary access and modular scaffolding solutions.
As the premier scaffolding management service in Western Australia, SMS Group Services is pleased to announce it will be distributing Universal Scaffolding, Stair Tower, Weather Protection and Advanced Guard Rail systems across the state.
The goal of this partnership is to match and improve safety objectives for the access management sector.
Designed to prioritise safety, all HAKI scaffolding and temporary access solutions use a unique hook-on and spring-locking catch system to eliminate the need for tools and hammering. HAKI products also use up to 30% fewer components than traditional scaffolding – the simplified equipment design means the fall-risk is significantly reduced.
SMS Group Services will be distributing the HAKI Advanced Guard Rail – which allows scaffolding structures to be erected and dismantled using collective fall prevention – as well as the HAKI Stair Tower.
With a 4kN/m² loading class, the tower is trusted by contractors worldwide for its improved safety, adaptability and deployment speed in temporary access. This is an exceptional advantage to commercial and construction sectors.
Recognising the synergy between both company’s commitments to safer working environments, Managing Director of SMS Group Services Mark Welsh and HAKI Sales Manager Mick Allen have been working together since 2018 to formalise the distribution agreement.
‘Our partnership with HAKI has allowed SMS Group Services to add real value to our clients in the industrial and green-fields sectors.’
‘HAKI Universal gives us the capability to offer real alternatives to the traditional tube and fitting solutions. Notably, the Advanced Guardrail has proven to be a game-changer, providing a reduction in risk, increase in safety and a significant reduction in overall supply weight. Ultimately this has resulted in time and costs savings for our clients, making HAKI Universal a winner all round, for us and our clients alike.’
HAKI’s Mick Allen said:
‘It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be partnering with the well-established Western Australian business that is SMS Group Services.’
‘HAKI’s vision is to form trusted partnerships and provide tailored solutions to support our clients. This aligns with the SMS Group Services philosophy of providing clients with complete access management solutions – not just scaffolding.’
‘We feel that SMS Group Services’ knowledge of Australian markets and their partnership with HAKI will be extremely beneficial when it comes to meeting client requirements.’
‘We look forward to working with Mark and the team at SMS Group Services in making this collaboration a success for all.’
