The Handy Scandy story began in 2016 when our very own Handy Scandy, Bjorn Fagerlind, was asked by friends to use his extensive DIY skills to help them with their home improvements. The demand for his work quickly grew and Bjorn began employing a team of experienced professionals to help him deliver the quality and levels of service the company is renowned for today.

To grow the business Bjorn was joined by Tom de Vries, a fellow European and lighting and engineering specialist, together they have expanded the Handy Scandy portfolio of services into bespoke lighting design and all types of electrical work. Along with their expert team they now offer a complete solution for home maintenance and renovation.


The founding principles of the Handy Scandy team remain the true heart of the business; a consistent drive to provide European standards, tools and quality workmanship to all our clients whatever the size and scale of the project. We stand firmly by our belief that by offering the customer honest advice, excellent service and quality craftsmanship at a fair rate you will find no better partner to help you with all all your maintenance, DIY and home improvement needs.


With our English speaking, professional craftsmen we cover all areas of Dubai with quick response times, excellent customer service and fair rates. Whether you’re moving into a new home, fixing up an existing property or starting a new project we offer the complete solution, the Handy Scandy way.
