BrandSafway acquires New England based Bowline Construction
Nov. 22, 2019 – Bowline Construction, a New England based mastclimber, scaffold, suspended platform and hoist rental company was acquired by BrandSafway.
Established in 2004, Bowline is based in Norwell, Massachusetts, around 15 miles to the south of Boston. It has provided façade access systems on a number of high profiles projects, such as the Boston’s Mandarin Oriental hotel, Yale and Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
“Bowline brings over 15 years of elevator and motorised access expertise to BrandSafway, along with an outstanding reputation. This will allow us to provide a full suite of powered access technologies throughout the New England region and demonstrates our commitment to investing in and expanding our hoist and motorised offerings,” said BrandSafway services president Art Eunson. “By leveraging the assets, expertise and reputation of Bowline, we plan to establish a motorized hub – a centre of excellence for motorized solutions – at the Norwell location. This new hub will operate in close collaboration with our BrandSafway Boston Branch.”
Cal O’Callaghan, president of Bowline added, “This is an exciting opportunity for our employees as well as our customers. By joining the leading access and industrial services company in North America, we can further grow our business and provide an enhanced level of service to our customers.”
BrandSafway is now a major conglomeration of scaffold and mostly non-mobile access equipment rental and contracting businesses.
