We have received the sad news that UK access industry veteran Graham Campbell passed away on Monday November 7th.
Campbell began his access career in 1967 when he joined John Rusling - the Instant scaffold and UpRight dealer for the UK – as a sales manager. In 1987 he left to set up his own sales company and became one of Genie UKs first dealers, selling its Superlift, PLG Air Hoist and AWP type products.
He was highly successful, especially with end user sales, and formed C&G Platforms Ltd with his wife Catherine to handle the growing business, although it remained largely a regional Genie dealer. Over the years however the husband and wife team developed C&G into a full service business offering service, repairs, replacement parts and training – most of which was outsourced - along with new and used equipment sales. They sold the business to Lifterz in March 2010. See Lifterz acquires C&G Platforms
He leaves behind his wife Catherine. The funeral/memorial service will be held at Dewsbury Golf Club on December 3rd at 12:30.
