STE is a family owned company, established in 1991 by Miel Ferket. He is considered to be an undisputed authority in the scaffolding industry. Once, Miel lost a friend through a deadly scaffolding accident. Since then it is his personal mission to safeguard anyone who, directly or indirectly, deals with working at a height for such a traumatic experience. For scaffolding, Miel Ferket developed a method of personal certification in the nineties according to ISO NEN 17024. Nowadays this is the generally applied standard.
