1. Aldercote Founded


    Founded in 1999 by Directors David and Paul Dillon, Aldercote was a specialist in vehicle engineering and the manufacture of aircraft de-icers and washers.

  2. PA128 launched


    Thanks to years of experience with other access platform companies, we were soon approached to design and manufacture a new reliable and robust van-mounted access platform for Hitachi Capital. The PA128 was launched.

  3. Site Expansion


    Site extended and a new workshop completed.

  4. CAN bus system


    First introduced CAN bus system into ‘the brain’ of our booms – this was pioneering engineering at the time. This development helped make the boom controls easy to operate.

  5. Magglo Composites Purchased


    Aldercote purchased GRP composite moulding company, Magglo Composites, and began manufacturing fibreglass products.

    This year also saw the launch of the 16.5m van mounted platforms.

  6. Marc Paish joins the team


    Marc Paish joined the board as Development Director and shareholder.

  7. National Grid use system


    We manufactured an insulated boom machine for National Grid.

  8. Focus Business


    We took the decision to concentrate on vehicle mounted access platform business.

  9. E-Drive As Standard


    We decided to make E-Drive – our self-charging hybrid electric battery system – as standard for all our vehicle mounted access platforms ...We don’t believe our environment should be an option!

  10. A busy year


    In April, we purchased a new site so Aldercote and Magglo are on one premises on the edge of Kingston upon Hull, with easy access onto the main route into the city, close to the docks.

    In May, we invested in, and took control of, our fabrication supplier Craven Fabrications, and moved the company into a new, larger premises in Newark, UK.
