Diss Scaffolding was set up in 1995 as a one man operation by Richard Littleboy. He worked tirelessly to grow the business, putting all of the profits back into the company to help it achieve success, turning it into a limited company.

During the past years the company has expanded considerably, employing a number of dedicated scaffolders, inspectors and a yard supervisor. One of the biggest reasons for the continued success of Diss Scaffolding is the commitment to high standards of workmanship and safety.

Over the years Diss Scaffolding has gained the ability and resources to work on all sizes of projects. This includes everything from supporting residential customers working alongside roofing contractors.


One of the leading names in the East Anglian building trade, Diss Scaffolding has built a reputation that is second to none. Proof of this is the continued use of the company’s services by CITB, one of the most important trade standards agency in the country. They employ Diss Scaffolding to build and maintain many of their demonstration scaffolds that are used to teach good practice to trainee scaffolders.


Diss Scaffolding has a dedicated yard situated on the Norfolk and Suffolk border with full working access to the East Anglian and London regions, although the company is now able to cover the whole of the UK for larger industrial contracts without any loss in the quality of service.
