Oct. 10, 2021

BrandSafway, Kennesaw, Ga., has acquired Gerüstbau Muehlhan, Hamburg, Germany. Gerüstbau Muehlhan, formerly owned by Muehlhan AG, is a full-service scaffolding provider that offers scaffold design, installation and dismantling services for customers in various end markets.

Gerüstbau Muehlhan has three locations in Northern Germany: Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Brunsbüttel.

BrandSafway has been operating in Germany since 2012, under the name Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services. With headquarters in Ratingen, Western Germany, and numerous locations on customer job sites, Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services serves customers in various industrial end markets, especially in the chemical, pharmaceutical, energy, food and steel market sectors.

Hünnebeck, another BrandSafway company with headquarters in Germany, provides formwork and shoring solutions for construction projects in many European markets. In addition, Hünnebeck offers a range of project-related rental services and safety solutions for construction sites.

“Both Gerüstbau Muehlhan’s and BrandSafway’s customers will benefit from this acquisition,” says Martin Hemberger, vice president of forming and shoring international at BrandSafway. “Together, we can offer an even wider range of customized and highly efficient scaffolding services to an enlarged customer base.”

“We are very pleased that we are now part of BrandSafway,” says Malte Herrmann, one of two managing directors at Gerüstbau Muehlhan. “This acquisition opens up very attractive opportunities for our customers and employees.”

“While we bring our expertise and know-how to BrandSafway, our customers and employees alike can benefit from the global capabilities and resources that BrandSafway offers,” says Gunnar Freier, also managing director at Gerüstbau Muehlhan.
