About us

Handy Scandy was established by Bjorn Fagerlind in 2016. After struggling to find work with his profession in I.T. Bjorn put his extensive DIY skills to good use and helped several friends make their house “a home”.

It soon became clear that there was a demand for a high-quality handyman service in Dubai, and Handy Scandy was born. The company has since evolved to become one of Dubai’s most reliable, efficient and friendly home and commercial maintenance companies.

In 2018 Bjorn joined forces with Tom De Vries, who originates from Holland and has over 25 years’ experience in Lighting and Professional Light Design. Tom started his own business, Dutch Engineering and Light design (DEAL), in Abu Dhabi in 2016, and since then has built a reputation for excellence in all types of electrical work. After meeting through work projects, the duo decided that combining their businesses and skills would create added value for their customers.

Bjorn and Tom’s European backgrounds means that they both have an eye for detail and quality workmanship and this extends to the team of professionals now working with them. Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to Handy Scandy and the entire team pride themselves on their response times and professionalism, together with a smile that they bring to every job.
