Celebrating 75 Years of Business

75 Years and Still Climbing Higher

Starting with one location in Durham, NC in 1947, Associated Scaffolders and Equipment Company provided scaffolding equipment to local contractors in the rapidly growing post-WWII South. In 1968 the company was bought by Gene Hawkins, who brought in his son Tommy. When Gene retired in 1985, Tommy took over as president of the newly renamed Associated Scaffolding Co, Incorporated. Tommy has overseen a steady growth, with the company now having 7 locations across 4 states.

Thank You to Our Customers

2022 marked Associated Scaffolding’s 75th year serving the access and safety needs of the Southeast.  We felt the best way to celebrate was by giving back to the ones who made this possible…our customers.

Each month during 2022 we offered discounts on many of our most popular job site and safety products, along with one special “Diamond Deal” !

We also did a raffle for monthly prizes on in-store purchases or rentals, as well as more than $7,000 in GRAND PRIZES which was awarded to 9 customers in December.
