After several years in the building trade Pat Blencowe identified a requirement for an established scaffolding firm to serve Salisbury and the surrounding area. Pat founded Blencowe Scaffolding in 1964 and it was incorporated in 1992. He and his family have expanded the business since then, acquiring firms in Basingstoke and Salisbury to enhance the company’s customer service and geographical operational area. Pat oversees operational activities across all three divisions and drives forward ambitious growth plans. Pat is an avid football fan – in his youth he elected to focus on building his business rather than joining Southampton Football Club.
