Individuals in Northeast Ohio Looking for Barrier-Free Living Can Visit Access Solutions, Inc. Stairlift Showroom

By Fiona Vernon

Ever wonder what it takes to make a successful company thrive? Hard work, dedication, and commitment to one’s customers and employees, with a true belief that their product can better someone’s life. One man had a vision of helping others and started Access Solutions, Inc. out of his garage in Akron, Ohio, in 1997. He saw the need for compassionate and knowledgeable people to provide wheelchair ramps and indoor and outdoor stairlifts. Whether someone in and around Youngstown, Ohio, has had a disability for most of their life, or an individual in Cleveland, Ohio, is adapting to their new normal with one, they will need to modify their home to obtain the freedom of barrier-free living in every area of their home. If the situation is new to them, they may require the addition of a disability ramp or vertical platform lift to get into the house. Having just celebrated their 20th anniversary, the staff of Access Solutions, Inc. possesses over 50 years of combined experience in the mobility industry, and individuals in Northeast Ohio can feel free to visit their stairlift showroom to test the products and determine what would best suit their situation.

After starting the business out of a garage, Access Solutions, Inc. saw gradual growth in the first year, rented a small space in downtown Akron, and took part in the Akron Industrial Incubator for three years. In 1998, this entrepreneur hired his first full-time employee, who is still there and is now the technical services supervisor. As is exemplified with that very first employee, the staff members love the company and values for which they stand so much that most of them have been employed with them for over 10 years. This attests to the highly ethical principles of Access Solutions, Inc. They have been fortunate to have experienced several growth spurts over the years while serving Northeast Ohio and have continued to realize increased sales and product lines. Their initial scope of work was focused on wheelchair ramps and a small variety of stairlifts; however, they now offer a vast array of indoor and outdoor stairlifts, residential and commercial vertical platform lifts, as well as a selection of residential elevators lines that have been quite successful.

From its inception in a garage to the first small, rented space that initial year, Access Solutions, Inc. has realized consistent growth and occupied small, frugal buildings as their business progressed; subsequently, four years ago they purchased a spacious building, which could accommodate a stairlift showroom and demo home elevator! This exciting upgrade in location and space gave them the ability to demonstrate their indoor and outdoor stairlifts to potential clients from Cleveland, Youngstown, and beyond so that they could truly decide what will ultimately improve their lives. When someone has been in their home for years but is finding it increasingly difficult to climb the stairs, instead of attempting a challenging move to a new home, a perfect solution is an outdoor or indoor stairlift. Access Solutions, Inc. offers a variety of temporary and permanent disability ramps, as well as incline and vertical platform lifts, which directly lifts a wheelchair to overcome steps. Access Solutions, Inc. makes choosing and installing a stairlift stress-free and economical, while having the ability to accommodate any style or shape of staircase.

Access Solutions, Inc. has experienced consistent growth throughout Northeast Ohio because of their hard work and integrity, resulting in many satisfied customers who have truly enjoyed the experience. From its inception with wheelchair ramps and a small selection of stairlifts out of a garage to celebrating their 20th anniversary in a spacious location with a stairlift and home elevator showroom in Akron, Ohio, they have been able to realize their dream of giving people their freedom back with barrier-free living in their homes. They have improved the lives of many from Youngstown, Ohio, to Cleveland, Ohio, with their vast array of disability ramps, vertical platform lifts, and curved or straight, indoor and outdoor stairlifts. It takes only one quick call or visit to their showroom to take advantage of the extensive knowledge of the compassionate staff of Access Solutions, Inc.
