BrandSafway has acquired Bowline Construction LLC, enhancing its hoist and motorized access offerings throughout the New England Region.

“Bowline brings over 15 years of elevator and motorized access expertise to BrandSafway, along with an outstanding reputation,” said Art Eunson, president of BrandSafway Services. “This will allow us to provide a full suite of power access technologies throughout the New England region and demonstrates BrandSafway’s commitment to investing in and expanding our hoist and motorized offerings.”

Founded in 2004, Bowline is a provider of commercial construction access systems in the New England area. Headquartered in Norwell, MA, approximately 15 miles south of Boston, Bowline has worked with a range of builders, contractors, construction managers, owners and developers to provide access solutions for projects of every size and scope.

“By leveraging the assets, expertise and reputation of Bowline, we plan to establish a motorized hub – a center of excellence for motorized solutions – at the Norwell location,” explained Eunson. “This new hub will operate in close collaboration with our BrandSafway Boston Branch.”

Recent notable projects from Bowline include: Mandarin Oriental, Boston; Fenway Park; the Dana-Farber Medical Center; The Clarendon Back Bay; Yale University; Harvard University; Massachusetts General Hospital; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Connecticut Science Center; Liberty Mutual Tower; Mission Church; and Old South Church.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our employees as well as our customers,” said Cal O’Callaghan, president of Bowline. “By joining the leading access and industrial services company in North America, we can further grow our business and provide an enhanced level of service to our customers.”

Bowline customers will be able to continue working with their current sales representatives and contacts.
