From a young age, founder George Marriott, had a fierce ambition to own his own company. Even as a child, he never wanted to have “just a job” and playing monopoly became his platform for business thinking! Starting his career in the oil industry, George always had an entrepreneurial eyes open for innovative ideas for his main goal in life – how to create his own business. Inspired by his father’s position in the industry and having grown up knowing all there is to know about powered access, he chose his direction and Access Plus was born in 1998! Since then Access Plus has grown tremendously and George is prouder than ever that he took the leap and turned his childhood ambition into reality.
Access Plus is an ongoing success story. Today, our extensive fleet and range of services, position us as one of the leading powered access providers in the UK.
