We provide safe, reliable and cost-effective access solutions for the construction industry

Contractors Access Equipment formed in 2001, primarily providing suspended scaffold to the Chicago area.  A few years later, the company expanded, developing branches in Dallas and Tampa. In 2009, the company acquired three locations of Direct Scaffold Services which are in Nashville, Jackson, and Birmingham.  Since then, the company has added CAE branches in Miami, Orlando, Austin, Houston, and Milwaukee and a DSS branch was added in Decatur, AL and Atlanta, GA. 

The company now has a total of 13 locations around the country with skilled scaffold erectors and qualified scaffold trainers at each location.  The company has approximately $20 million in a very diverse scaffold inventory which includes system scaffold, frame and brace scaffold, suspended scaffold, shoring, sidewalk canopies, mast climbers, elevators, and transport platforms.  The company has seen significant growth in revenue and profitability in each of the last 10 years, and where needed has bonding capabilities of $25 million.

Safety is at the core of everything we do.  We are proud to have pre-qualifications and/or professional affiliations with the following:

Our focus in engineering services is to provide our customers the best possible scaffold solutions and alternatives. 

These engineering services are provided by a core group of engineers who perform scaffold and shoring engineering, exclusively.  PE stamped drawings are available when required.
