Safway Group Purchases Assets of Swing Staging and Related Companies

In a move to enhance its position in the New York metro area and expand its expertise and offerings in motorized access solutions, Safway Group is announcing the acquisition of the assets of Swing Staging, Inc. and related companies – including Twin & Swing Scaffolding, Inc., Specialty Access Systems, LLC, Long Island City Trucking Corporation, and Scaffold King Inc. (collectively ‘Swing Staging’).

The assets, including equipment, inventory and brand name of Swing Staging have been transferred to Swing Staging, LLC, a new Safway Group business entity.

"By acquiring the leading provider of suspended access solutions in the New York metro area, we will enhance our presence in this critical market," explained Bill Hayes, Safway Group president and CEO. "Swing Staging has built a strong reputation in the area as the ‘go-to’ provider for a wide range of suspended access solutions. For more than 50 years, they have been known for offering the most extensive, high-quality rental fleet, and delivering the right equipment in pristine condition – whenever and wherever customers need it. Swing Staging is a strong addition to the Safway Group and will help grow our motorized access business."

Swing Staging, Inc. was owned and operated by John Pantanelli, who had taken over the business from his father who founded it. Pantanelli will join Safway as vice president of Sales for Swing Staging, LLC.

"Being a part of a larger company that is a major national player, like the Safway Group, is an opportunity for us to move Swing Staging to the next level of development," said Pantanelli. "We are looking forward to leveraging our operational and management expertise in the suspended access business to a much broader market."

"We are excited about acquiring Swing Staging and having John join the team," concluded Hayes. "This is a natural expansion of Safway’s motorized expertise and capabilities."
