Ascendant Access – a vision of excellence

Ascendant Access grew out of Managing Director Steve Dean’s strong belief that British design and manufacturing can produce truck mounted platforms competitive with anybody else in the world.

Experts in the field

Acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading authorities on vehicle mounted platform design, Steve Dean founded the company in 2003 and launched the Ascendant A22-17 platform which has now become a byword for performance and reliability. Our customers value the specialist expertise and support that only focus and experience in a specific field can bring.

Performance and durability

The company’s philosophy is embraced in the well-worn phrase “keep it simple” and almost 15 years later it remains as true as ever. All of the company’s products feature robust design combined with easy operation and maintenance resulting in exceptionally low whole life costs and strong resale value.

A range built for purpose

Ascendant now offers a comprehensive range of products on vans and light chassis cabs of 7.5t GVW. From a simple 12.5m reverse articulated van mount to a robust 26m platform on a 7.5t chassis Ascendant can meet the needs of hire companies and contractors alike. Our specialist tracked carrier and tractor mounted units get to jobsites no road-going vehicle can reach.

Already a significant manufacturer of vehicle mounted access platforms in the UK the company has put in place all of the necessary ingredients for a successful life in the export market.
