AA Access joins High Access

We are pleased to announce that High Access acquired AA Access in October 2017

BGF-backed High Access gets a lift with AA Access acquisition

High Access, the Manchester-headquartered working-at-height expert, has acquired premium truck-mounted platform business AA Access.

High Access, established in 2005 by CEO Niel Bethell, offers a maintenance and cleaning service to the commercial, industrial and high-end or high-level residential property sectors, counting the likes of Allied London, Savills and CBRE among its clients. The firm secured £3.3million investment from BGF in July last year to pursue further growth across the UK. The business has focused on providing outstanding customer service, a strategy that has seen it continue to grow, establishing a solid client base.

The acquisition will allow High Access clients to reap the benefits of the business now having an enhanced fleet of fully-owned top of the range machinery, and will support the company’s objective of moving into new sectors while delivering growth through high service levels.

Andy Ainsworth established AA Access in 2003 with the intention of providing a superior rental service for access platforms. He has since built a successful business, with clients also benefiting from his knowledge and expertise having worked in the industry for more than 20 years. The company offers hire of a wide range of machinery from the smallest 10m machines through to the Bronto 70 XDT at 70m. A large proportion of the firm’s work comes from the supply of access platforms to the film industry and for the set-up of large-scale events.

Andy Ainsworth will remain within the business, working closely with Niel and Adam Bethell, who joins as Director for AA Access. The AA Access team will also transfer over to the business.

Andy Ainsworth, Founder of AA Access, said: “I’m very proud of how AA Access has grown since I set out back in 2003; our client base says it all, with events including The Open, Glastonbury, the Queen’s Jubilee and Wimbledontrusting our team to supply machinery for the set-up of these world-class events. We have always maintained a fleet with the latest models and, like High Access, the business is built on great customer service and creating an environment where people want to work. It was apparent from early discussions that AA Access would be a complementary acquisition for an ambitious and forward-thinking business such as High Access.

“We look forward to working with our clients over the coming months, continuing to deliver the best possible service”
