Safway Services, LLC has announced an agreement with Mecan.

Safway Services, LLC has announced an agreement with Mecan.
In an effort to grow business internationally and expand in Brazil's burgeoning market, Safway Services, LLC has announced an agreement with Mecan, the largest producer and renter of scaffold in Brazil. Mecan will manufacture and distribute Safway's QuikDeck Suspended Access System in Brazil and in other parts of South America.

"Along with the potential for additional revenue, this new agreement gives Safway the ability to introduce the QuikDeck product into the international market, with excellent distribution and support set up at the local level," says Jerry Dolly, Safway's Bridge Division manager. "Having been successfully used in a number of applications and in different markets, we expect QuikDeck will be as versatile and efficient there as it is here."

The newly signed agreement gives Safway access to Brazil's rapidly developing offshore market, in addition to its commercial and industrial markets.

QuikDeck is a modular platform system that is easy to install, safe for workers and more economical than traditional scaffold or access solutions in a variety of applications. With its versatility and ease-of-use, QuikDeck can be assembled from just a few basic components and configured to fit almost any shape or size.

Mecan is one of 10 companies that is part of the Grupo Orguel Corporation, which services the commercial and industrial markets. Grupo Orguel has been in business for over 40 years, and the Mecan Company is involved in manufacturing, distribution, rental and installation of scaffold.
