Your global partner for stairlifts, platform lifts and home lifts

For over 30 years, by providing the highest level of support to our dealers, we have specialised in making life easier for both private and public customers.

Why choose Access BDD?

We have been supplying bespoke stairlifts from our location in Teesside since 1976, when the company was founded as “Project and Design”, manufacturing the Stair-El stairlift for private customers and local authorities.

Since 1999 we have been part of the global technology giant thyssenkrupp, and today, as the reseller division of thyssenkrupp Access Ltd, we supply a network of partners across the globe with stairlifts, platform lifts and home lifts.

What our partners say...

We’ve been an Access BDD partner for a little over 2 years now. We initially tried different manufacturers for our stairlift business but things just did not work out. Once we became an Access BDD approved partner, we knew we were onto a winning relationship. The fantastic product range and support from the team in the office is second to none. We look forward to growing our business and continuing our partnership with Access BDD.
