SHS Integrated Services, a specialist provider of high-specification industrial scaffolding to highly regulated environments, has appointed a new regional director to its Doncaster office in a bid to boost its presence in the north east.
Michael Griffiths, 34, from Rotherham has been a prominent figure in the power and transmission sector for over eight years and will now be responsible for strengthening SHS’s relationships with existing clients and driving new business leads in the industrial, construction, civil and rail sectors across the north.
Prior to joining SHS, Mr Griffiths spent seven years working at Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, starting as a draughtsman and progressing to become a team leader, where he was responsible for the design, feasibility and planning of contracts ranging from £10,000 to £2.5 million.
Mr Griffiths joined SHS in 2013 as part of the acquisition of Dixon Pentland Scaffolding, where he had worked since 2007, and has spent the 18 months working as a commercial manager with SHS, before being promoted into this newly created position.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Griffiths said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead SHS’s UK transmission & distribution division and develop the company’s presence in north east England. We have ambitious growth plans for SHS in the north east and hope to double the current turnover within the next three years while ensuring the business model remains both sustainable and diverse.”
