Find your perfect platform

Building & Construction Review is proud to present Independent Access Sales with our Commitment to Excellence Award.

IAS’s incredible growth strategy since it was established in 2020 has enabled them to unlock new partnerships and reach new audiences, scaling up even faster than they could have ever thought possible. With 35 years of experience in the access industry, Richard Martin – current Managing Director and Owner, and his small but vital three-member team who also have an abundance of experience within the access industry, have already smashed their initial five-year targets as it fast becomes a future ready company demanding speed, efficiency and value in all areas of its service.

With a sole mission to find the perfect access platform for your needs that also comes at the best price achievable, IAS have a number of services available for all customers. Richard explains, “Our main service is that we sell certain manufacturers platforms that include Easylift Spider Platforms, SOCAGE Truck Mounting Platforms, and the Leonardo HD which is a compact, versatile and lightweight mobile platform by Bravi HD.”

“Further to this, we also do consultancy and servicing for our customers. We are reliable, honest and ultimately look after our client’s needs. Our back up service is very professional and second to none.”

Whether you’re a homeowner, contractor, business owner, or work within an area of building and construction, IAS work to find the best and most reliable access platform for your project. To support this, they also provide a maintenance service to ensure your access platform is always in top working condition. “Customers who may have an access issue can call us and we will either work with them to solve their problem or point them in the right direction to solve their access needs. Our team and I have over 35 years’ experience in the access industry so I would like to think we really understand the industry and what our customers need. We are the ultimate professionals and will use our expertise and experience to ensure only positive outcomes. We are approachable, reliable, and honest, and because we are a small company we work really well with people and give them our upmost attention backed up by an incredible aftersales service that we are proud of,” stated Richard.

Starting from nothing, it is completely commendable to witness what Richard and his team have achieved in such a short period of time. “We started from nothing to being a distributor where we have sold over £2 million worth of Spider machines in the last two and a half years. One million pounds of which was sold to just one individual client, so we are trying to grow the brand as organically as I can and as long as I can keep selling this way the skies the limit for us. The growth of the business from standing start to where we are now is phenomenal and I’m very proud but keen to continue selling Spiders and other equipment,” added Richard.

Recently, IAS took on the sale of SOCAGE trucks selling its first one in March 2023 with another eight trucks coming in soon. “We are also really excited to announce that we will be adding some more lines and brands to our current stock in the very near future that will add some more strings to our bow,” said Richard.

Moving forward IAS will continue to grow organically and employ more people along the journey. “To support our future expansion we will be looking to hire more staff who will help us reach new markets and bigger audiences. Our main goal is to increase product awareness and we can only do this through hiring more people to join our sales team,” added Richard.

In closing, we asked Richard what does a commitment to excellence mean to the company and how does he feel they achieve this.

“Over the years, we have built up a good brand awareness so people are aware of us and know us well enough to have a strong confidence in buying from us. When a company comes back to us to buy a second or third machine, we know we are doing something right. We have many customers that are repeat purchasers and that shows they trust us. We pride ourselves on building a strong rapport with our clients and we ensure to do our upmost to look after them and be as professional as we can be. Our team will go above and beyond to meet all customers’ needs and we are rewarded by their returned custom.”
