Access North Ltd celebrates tripled turnover with new office and team growth

    In the wake of tripled
    turnover and the launch of a brand-new division, West Yorkshire-based Access
    North Ltd is marking its biggest financial year to-date with an office
    relocation, following a recruitment drive which has seen the team double in

    Company owners, Berenice
    and Daniel Northcott, credit the new Access North Build division – launched in
    2018 – as the driving force behind the financial uplift, which has seen the
    group generate £1.75m of revenue over the past 12 months.

    To facilitate a marked
    upturn in service demand, the firm has made eight new appointments since March
    2018 and – having recently celebrated its eighth birthday – has now outgrown
    the base it has called home since 2013.

    As a result, the 13-strong
    team recently moved to a larger space at the Park Valley Mills Business Park in
    Lockwood, Huddersfield – the local regeneration project complimenting the
    firm’s own commitment to breathing new life into existing spaces.

    With a trio of team members
    having been appointed in October 2018, a further three new faces have joined
    the growing team of specialists in recent weeks. These 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 reflected on a positive year: “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.”

    Established in 2011, Access
    North Structures specialises in the installation, inspection and maintenance of
    complex structures, ETFE facilities and tensile fabric canopies, via rope
    access techniques.

    Meanwhile, Access North
    Build specialises in the design, engineering and construction of ETFE,
    lightweight tensile fabric structures and structural glass roofs and facades –
    across a variety of construction projects.
