Lift and Access
Comprehensive Coverage for the North American Construction and Rental Markets

As North America’s most comprehensive lifting equipment magazine, each issue of Lift and Access analyzes new technologies, discusses industry trends, and reviews unique applications. Our coverage goes beyond equipment introductions. It provides an in-depth look at the advanced engineering, components, and ancillary products that further enhance the products’ usage and safety.

In addition to construction and equipment rental, Lift and Access extends its mission to the overhead utility market and fleet procurement managers respectively through its Telecom & Utility Construction and Components & Consumables supplements. Both products look deeper into these specific lifting equipment sectors, providing in-depth product information to industry professionals.

Through the combination of our print magazine, regularly updated website, weekly eNewsletter, digital issues, and live webinars and conferences, there is no faster route to find lifting equipment product information than Lift and Access.
