Our history

Simian was established in 2005 and Simian International came about in 2008 when we were awarded our first overseas contract in Angola. Since then Simian International, led by Ian Fyall, has taken the Simian vision global.

We now boast bases in the UAE and Africa and have contracts as far afield as Nigeria and the oil fields in Iraq, as well as work on groundbreaking projects such as the Shell Prelude in South Korea. We work with candidates from all over the world including China, Russia, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Australasia.

Simian was key in establishing the International Scaffolder Scheme to provide a recognised training qualification for scaffolding operatives, supervisors and inspectors operating globally. Since its inception, thousands of scaffolders have been trained to a standard which we believe has a positive impact on health and safety around the world.

Simian International offers this recognised training as well as bespoke training at our dedicated centres or at client premises to suit their operational needs.
