Lachlan 'Graham' Campbell 1937-2018

We have received the sad news that UK access industry veteran Graham Campbell passed away on Monday November 7th.
Graham Campbell in the early days of his access career

Campbell began his access career in 1967 when he joined John Rusling - the Instant scaffold and UpRight dealer for the UK – as a sales manager. In 1987 he left to set up his own sales company and became one of Genie UKs first dealers, selling its Superlift, PLG Air Hoist and AWP type products.

He was highly successful, especially with end user sales, and formed C&G Platforms Ltd with his wife Catherine to handle the growing business, although it remained largely a regional Genie dealer. Over the years however the husband and wife team developed C&G into a full service business offering service, repairs, replacement parts and training – most of which was outsourced - along with new and used equipment sales. They sold the business to Lifterz in March 2010. See Lifterz acquires C&G Platforms

He leaves behind his wife Catherine. The funeral/memorial service will be held at Dewsbury Golf Club on December 3rd at 12:30.

We will update this article as we receive further details. In the meantime if you have any information that will help us do a fitting tribute please do send it to editor@vertikal.net

A sad loss indeed. Graham was a gentlemen, a pleasure to do business with and a good guy to share a scotch with. Sincere condolences to Catherine, Graham will be missed.

Very sad news, Graham always gave me encouragement and help passing on work to me when I had my own haulage business. He always had time for a chat no matter what.
My thoughts go to his family. RIP Mr C.

I am saddened to hear of Graham's passing.
As a 22-year-old Salesman for Benford I sold my first scissor lifts to Graham in 1990, he then resold them to Mauritius Airlines. He was a fair customer who was willing to impart his vast knowledge to a young man starting out.
An archetypal Scotsman who enjoyed a good deal with a twinkle in his eye.
My sincerest condolences to Cath and Graham's extended family at this time.
