Egypt’s Harsco Infrastructure announced that the company has reverted to its former brand name SGB, following a change in ownership
The company was previously known as Harsco Egypt for Scaffolding and Formwork S.A.E. but here onward, would be recognised as SGB Egypt for Scaffolding and Formwork S.A.E. again, stated SGB officials.
Ken Norris, general manager of SGB Egypt, said, “With this step, the business returns to its longstanding SGB tradition dating back to 1919. SGB has accrued more than 35 years of brand recognition in the region as a trusted and well-respected name synonymous with industrial services and access solutions. The change back to SGB has received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the industry and customers.”
Following a change in ownership in November 2013, the company decided to return to its erstwhile name. The newly-named SGB has been a subsidiary of the US-based Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services (BEIS) from November 2013, they added.
BEIS is a provider of specialty services for the global energy, industrial and infrastructure markets, such as scaffolding and access equipment, corrosion protection, coating and painting, insulation, fireproofing, refractory, mechanical services, engineering, formwork and shoring systems.
Customers would benefit from a network of more than 300 branches in 32 countries across the globe and a world-class workforce of 24,000 professionals.
