The UK-based Access Alliance has welcomed Liftright Access as its first Associate Member.

The new Associate Member scheme was launched by the Access Alliance a few weeks ago with the aim to share the benefits of the group to smaller independent powered access hire companies.

Steve Simmons, chairman of the Access Alliance and managing director of Star Platforms said, ”We are delighted that Liftright Access is now part of the Access Alliance. Gary and Caroline recently changed the focus of their business from a sales organisation to sales and rental, and with their many years of experience in the access industry and excellent customer service and quality machine fleet, we are confident that Liftright Access will fit well into the Access Alliance UK network.”

He added, ”The very heart of the Access Alliance is to provide members the ability to cross-hire with high quality like-minded independent businesses, all of whom agree to offer customers the same high-level of service on a quality fleet of machines. It therefore gives us the ability to offer national coverage to our customers through a trusted network of Access Alliance members”.

Gary Fleckney from Liftright Access said, ”It’s exciting times for Liftright Access, with our rental business continuing to grow from strength-to-strength, and now with membership of the Access Alliance we can offer our customers a true national service. We look forward to meeting and working with the other members in the future.”

The Access Alliance is processing applications and will be launching more Associate members in the near future. They invite anyone interested in joining to complete the form on
