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.
