About us

Patent LLC, A Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services Company, has more than 100 years of scaffold related experience. In 1909, Patent Scaffolding Company was founded in the U.S. by three companies--Pitou, Beinecke and Davidson. That same year, and with the introduction of a heavy-duty scaffolding system, the company set new standards in access equipment safety.

During the 1950s, Patent  Scaffold Company began supplying the formwork systems of Hünnebeck to the U.S. market. This followed a short period of adapting existing scaffold systems and developing its own bespoke systems after it first entered the formwork market in the 1940’s.

In 1964 Patent Scaffolding Company became a part of Harsco. Then, in September 2013, Harsco Corporation announced the sale of its Infrastructure business into a joint venture with the private investment firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice. At the same time, CD&R purchased Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services, Inc. and combined the two businesses into a leading single-source provider of specialised construction and industrial services to the worldwide energy and infrastructure sectors.

In January 2016, Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services re-introduced Patent as Patent LLC to the U.S. commercial scaffolding marketplace.
