All of these benefits fit directly into Fenton’s growth model by allowing us to grow with all Fenton and Hensley customers while providing unparalleled expertise and innovation.”
Fenton comprises three divisions – rigging, contracting and shotcrete. The rigging division serves the industrial, commercial and contracting sectors.
