Forward supports shareholders of JDC Scaffolding on sale to management team

Based in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, Barnet Scaffolding Systems Limited (trading as JDC Scaffolding) is a professional commercial access scaffolding contractor providing an experienced approach from project inception to final account agreement.


JDC is a scaffolding specialist with a large and diverse client base, from new build, refurbishment to works carried out on many of London’s historic buildings.


The business was founded by John Davey in 1994, and was inherited by his daughters, Grace and Alice Davey, after his untimely death in 2022. Since then the business has been excellently managed by the management team, whose collective tenure with the business exceeds 70 years.


Forward worked with Grace and Alice to explore the options for the business, including the possibility of a trade sale. Ultimately it was decided that the best option for the future of the business, its employees and customers was to structure a sale of the business to the management team.
