Acces Industrie

Acces Industrie is a leading French rental specialist of aerial work platforms and handling equipment.

Acces Industrie (Acces) provides a wide range of short- and long-term rental solutions and has a large fleet of over 12,000 aerial work platforms and handling equipment, which can be used indoors and outdoors to meet customer site constraints such as space, building height, or access to power supply. Its fully integrated services include technical support, refurbishment, on-site delivery and collection, financing, and customer services.

Headquartered in Tonneins, southwestern France, Acces has established a nationwide network of 38 depots in France and four in Spain and offers convenient, local service to over 6,000 loyal and well-diversified customers in end markets, including construction, industrial, retail, and logistics.


Equistone has worked closely with the management team to support its strategic plans to focus on end markets that benefit from macro trends such as global energy transition, e-commerce and infrastructure.

Its geographic presence has expanded across France, with the opening of new strategically positioned depots and through its acquisition of Watine Manutention in October 2023. 

Equistone also supported Acces with its entry into the Spanish market, with the acquisition of Uping in 2022. Following this acquisition, new depots are in the process of being opened in Spain. The group has also expanded its offering at each of its existing depots to meet customer demand in fast growing sectors.

Operational improvements have notably included strengthening the team with the appointment of a new CFO, as well as the creation of new roles for a head of pricing & yield management and a head of marketing.

As a result, the group has increased its workforce from 442 to 650 people and revenue has grown from €90m in 2020 to €140m in 2023.


Equistone sold its Fund VI investment in Acces Industrie to Delmas Investissements & Participations, a French family investment group.
