Welcome to Ascendant Access, the UK’s foremost specialist manufacturer of vehicle mounted access platforms. Whether on a flat bed truck, van or specialist vehicle we can provide a high performance, high quality and cost effective solution.

Since 2003 Ascendant have concentrated solely on the design, manufacture and repair of access platforms (cherrypickers) mounted on road-going and off road vehicles including trucks, vans, tractors, tracked carriers and road/rail units.

This focus on vehicle mounted platforms has allowed us to refine our products so that they offer the best performance and reliability in real life conditions for both end users and rental fleets alike.

Our Philosophy

We don’t believe in compromising strength or durability to achieve light weight or ultimate reach as we know our customers won’t thank us if the machine breaks down when it is really needed or is worth nothing to sell after five years work. We do believe that smart design can provide a combination of really usable reach, realistic payloads for the crew and their tools and inherently robust design that is reliable and lasts for many years.

Because our skilled workforce manufacture and install our machines entirely within our facilities in Tyne & Wear UK, this quality and performance can be achieved at really competitive prices. Have a look at our range on this site then contact us to see how it is possible to buy British, enjoy top quality performance AND save money!
