Chris was a founder of Sorrel Corp, an engineering company specializing in industrial hoists and lifts when he met Sunder, Director of Leopad Group and his future co-founder of Dscaff, at a sales pitch where they first began collaborating on a number of projects.
Together, they discovered there were no significant technological changes made in the past 30 years of the construction industry and shared a similar drive and passion to innovate and design high-quality scaffolding equipment, which led to the establishment of Dscaff Group.
Initially in 2013, Dscaff sold traditional scaffolding to clients while developing innovative modular scaffolding systems. As the industrial services sector and construction industries progressed with higher demand, workers’ safety became a growing importance to developers as over 4000 accidents are reported each year in the Malaysian construction sector. Over the course of two years, Dscaff developed new modular systems such as Shore Access Staging (SAS) system, DXS Alloy Frame Bridging system and SBS Plastic Framework system. These systems help expand Dscaff’s product capabilities and applications in a single product suite while reducing time and effort to build the scaffolding structures. Dscaff’s production of high-quality equipment is 15% lighter and 20% stronger than of their competitors, receiving a recognition by Construct Pty Ltd. as the world’s strongest scaffolding system. Currently, Dscaff holds 3 pending patents, 7 trademarks and is the only scaffolding company in the region certified with ISO9001 and ISO29001.
Chris started his career in scaffolding and formwork in Saudi Arabia as a builder for five years at Acrow Engineers and then joined the Royal Marine Commandoes for six years. Chris has represented the UK and placed second in the NATO annual competition. His interests include engineering and design, as well as animal welfare. Chris has 29 pet animals and sits on the committee of SPCA. Chris was selected as an Endeavor Entrepreneur at the 64th Endeavor International Selection Panel in Madrid.
