Over 40 years ago, when Bob Tyler decided to branch out into providing scaffolding and access equipment, he knew he had developed a business that was destined to thrive


British ingenuity

Bob's is a true story of British ingenuity and entrepreneurship, his business was soon providing services across the Middle East, whilst building a successful headquarters in the industrial seaport of Grimsby.

With Bob’s success came swift expansion and the business became known as Caspian, in recognition of the sea that many of the countries he supplied to overlooked.

The dissolution of the USSR in 1991 brought further opportunities, with countries such as Kurdistan and Kazakhstan seeking to develop their infrastructures, resulting in business links that remain to this very day.

With established depots in Hull and Scunthorpe, along with the long-established facilities in Grimsby, serving customers of the United Kingdom, Caspian continues to seek new horizons and opportunities to provide essential services to an industry it knows so well.

Although still very much involved in the business in 2003 Bob decided to take more of a back seat role within the Company and Neil Garrison was appointed Managing Director of Caspian Access and Plant Hire Ltd.


Continued success

As recently as 2017, Neil saw the potential to invest in the production of scaffolding boards, by acquiring operation facilities and retaining experienced personnel from Marley Eternit (formerly the UK’s leading scaffolding board producer John Brash & Co Ltd). To facilitate such a bold expansion, new larger premises were required, resulting in the opening of Caspian House, a bespoke manufacturing base.

Another important development has been the successful awarding of PEFC Chain of Custody accreditation in 2018, highlighting Caspian’s commitment to environmental responsibility in relation to this new site. With a forward-thinking philosophy and wise business acumen, alongside steady and considered expansion, Caspian has become not only one of the most competitive providers of scaffolding, tools and accessories to the building industry, but with decades of experience it has a respected and trusted global name.

The business has come a long way since Bob Tyler first identified a gap in the market he knew he could address. Now known internationally as Caspian Group Ltd, a name to match the future ambitions of the company, we look forward to working with all our long-standing and future customers, as together we help to build a better world.
