SAA Partner News – Layher and Sustainability


Layher and Sustainability.

As the debate continues throughout Australia about the short- and long-term focus on sustainability, it is important to look at how this effects the Scaffolding Industry.

At Layher we take this topic seriously. We have been making every effort to ensure that our products are not only geared towards building the infrastructure of a sustainable future but also manufactured in a way that follows the best possible practices when it comes to efficient use of resources. These initiatives are highlighted in the attached document and include:

  • Solutions for renewable energy
  • Innovations for lower emissions
  • Sustainable business practices

As the largest manufacturer of scaffolding with a global network, Layher is leading the way in this initiative. Future contracts in all areas of the Australian market will look favourably at companies that use ethically sourced and sustainable products. This will play a role in scaffolding contractors and suppliers relying on the “price per tonne” contracting model that is favoured by inferior producers that have little regard for the environment or the people they employ.

As we have done for over 75 years, Layher will be on hand to help our clients and industry build the power network, mines, bridges and buildings of the future while being able to assist with the maintenance and restoration of existing assets. This will ensure that scaffolding remains a cornerstone of the temporary works process for generations to come. Layher looks forward to meeting these challenges. Our clients can be certain that Layher will continue to support them by producing the most innovative, efficient and sustainable products now and into the future.

Together we are on the way up.

Brad Leggett

Managing Director.
