Johnson Access was established in 1999 to serve the personnel access requirements of customers in the construction and other industries and to better serve the needs of customers where workmen are required to work in elevated positions. At the time it was set up as a product diversification strategy of Johnson Crane Hire, then part of the Murray & Roberts Group of Companies. This changed after July 2002, when George Landsberg and Dean Jones teamed up with Mettle Ltd to purchase the company from Murray & Roberts.

With the newfound independence and the cash infusion into the company, the company was able to increase its growth and to consolidate its position as the biggest hirer of access platforms in Southern Africa. 

The company now has aerial work platforms (also often referred to as Cherry Pickers, Boom and Scissor Lifts, powered access or mobile elevated work platforms) available for long and shorter-term hire. Its fleet currently consists of the following types of platforms , all new and of the top international brands (especially Genie):

  • Articulating boom lifts with working heights of up to 43.15m
  • Telescopic boom lifts with working heights of up to 39.9m
  • Scissor lifts (for on-slab or rough terrain work) with working heights of up to 18m
  • Trailer-mounted articulating boom lifts with working heights of up to 17.2m

Discover a faster, easier and safer way to reach elevated work areas from 5 to 40m, by hiring high performance aerial work platforms (diesel or electric) from Johnson Access. We offer a wide selection of platforms and our flexible rental terms and commitment to service and support will help keep you performing at a higher level.
