Gallowglass turns 20

Gallowglass, the UK’s largest crewing company, celebrates its 20th anniversary this September. The company that came into being in 1996 when brothers Paul and Nick Grecian pulled together a small team of players from the London Scottish Rugby Club, has steadily grown into an international group of events services companies.

Highlights in the company’s lifetime have included supporting London 2012, including the Games’ Opening and Closing Ceremonies; crewing the G8 and G20 Global Summits, and assisting the events surrounding the final flight of Concorde.

Group Managing Director Nick Grecian said: “The range of structures that we have built for corporate events is astonishing: from a wooden deck covering 11,000 m2 of exhibition floor at Barcelona’s International Convention Centre, to a 400 cubic metre dome housing a pop-up exhibition for the Mexico Tourism Board.

Since 1996, a series of related but independent companies has been added to the Gallowglass stable, offering health and safety consultancy, sustainability support and training. The most recent addition to the Group, Gallowglass Global Event Services, provides a total overlay solution for contractors and major event organisers.

Today an international group with an active client list of over 5,000 companies, Gallowglass operates throughout Europe and the Middle East.

The first crewing company in the UK to win an award, Gallowglass has chalked up 21 ‘industry bests’, winning Event Services Supplier of the Year awards every year since 2003 – with the exception of 2012, when the company was too busy working on the Olympics to enter any awards. In 2011 the company scored an industry first by holding all of the ‘supplier of the year’ awards, in existence for that year.
