CFC is one of the leading scaffolding contractors and providers of scaffolding services in South Africa. But our big business status has not stopped us from offering one-on-one, tailored service from second-generation upper management with years of hands-on scaffolding experience. This ensures that not only does our company provide quality products to our longstanding customers, but also the best service to match. Specializing in contracting, hire and sales – we cater to any and all scaffolding and formwork  needs.

Our Story

How did Cape Formwork Contractors become one of the biggest Scaffolding Companies in Cape Town?

In January 1984 when Colin Poole and Jerry West went into partnership their goal was clear – to take on the highly competitive scaffolding and formwork market in Cape Town and grow into a company that specialises in scaffold and formwork hire and sales.

Colin Poole brought a wealth of experience in the field of scaffolding and formwork whilst Jerry West brought his expertise as a chartered accountant. It proved to be the perfect balance.

Since CFC’s inception and throughout its growth, one fundamental business principle stands out from the rest as the primary goal for CFC… SERVICE DELIVERY. A lot has changed since 1984, with the addition of many new members to the CFC family, but one thing remains the same, the commitment to providing customers with the best possible service and value that we can offer!

It is through CFC’s commitment to service as a trusted scaffolding and formwork company that we have forged strong relationships with some of South Africa’s largest and most reputable companies.

At CFC we believe in doing the job right the first time, and with over 100 years of combined contract scaffolding, scaffolding hire and sales and formwork experience in upper management alone, we believe that we deliver.
