Height experts Access North relocate after tripling revenue

Working at height specialists Access North has seen a year of growth, triping revenues, growing the team and relocating.

Established in 2011, Access North Structures specialises in the installation, inspection and maintenance of complex structures, as well ETFE (a form of plastic) and tensile fabric canopies. The group turned over £1.75m in the past 12 months.

The Huddersfield-based company credits its new Access North Build division, launched in 2018, with the growth. Access North Build engineers lightweight tensile fabric structures and structural glass roofs and facades in construction projects.

The group has more than doubled the team, bringing in 8 employees since March 2018.

This sustained growth has meant that the company has had to relocate from the premises it has held since 2013.

The team of 13 recently moved to a larger space at the Park Valley Mills Business Park in Lockwood, Huddersfield.

New team members include sales project manager Paul Crawford, procedures and operations manager Louis Aspeling, and business admin apprentice Naomi Collins.

Access North Ltd managing director, Berenice Northcott (pictured) said: “It goes without saying that it’s been a brilliant year for us. With additional team members joining us and an office move, we have high aims for the next 12 months.

“Access North Build has enjoyed a fantastic start. Our work at Alsager School in Cheshire saw the team pioneer an industry first – a lightweight steel space frame supporting an ETFE membrane – while our work at Haggerston Castle in Northumberland has breathed new life into an inspiring space.”
