20 years in business! G&M Group launch

G&M Celebrates 20 Year Anniversary and Launches G&M Group


Leading construction industry work at height safety training and temporary safety systems brand, G&M Safety Netting Ltd/G&M Safe Deck have re-branded – launching G&M Group – in the year the company marks its 20th year in business.


Established in 2001-2 by founders Geoffrey Irlam and Managing Director Mark Pickles, the G&M Group – known (and still trading) as G&M Safety Netting Ltd and G&M Safe Deck – is still a family-run business today; delivering quality safety training and safety enhancing products to the UK construction sector’s main contractors nationwide.


Based at Middlewich in Cheshire – where there is now a state-of-the-art training facility in place offering a wide range of FASET and other courses to riggers, deckers and managers alike –  the firm has grown to now have operational centres in the midlands and South West, serving the construction, house-building, timber-frame and other sectors country-wide.


The decision to re-brand to G&M Group has come as the business is set to launch a series of innovative new products in their 20th anniversary year, which will boost their existing offerings of G&M Safe Deck, G&M safety netting, stair towers, edge protection, rope access and other leading work at height safety products.


G&M Group Managing Director, Mark Pickles said: “The launch of the G&M Group brand is a fantastic way to celebrate two busy, successful decades of trade within the construction sector. We are so lucky to have kept some of original team members – including Sean Barber who has worked with G&M from the beginning – and to have such a great team of people in the office training centre and on-site installing. WE are a great team offering the best products, training and customer service.


“And with three new safety enhancing, time and money saving products about to launch in 2022, the future looks bright for the G&M Group and our many valued customers. Here’s to the next 20 years!”
