Europe's Premier Address for
High Quality Lift Technology


Ascendor Lifttechnik Ltd was established in 2006 and we have been manufacturing high quality, attractive platform stair lifts since 2007. These are suitable for a multitude of indoor and outdoor applications. Our range of lift systems are all manufactured entirely at the Ascendor factory, located near Niederwaldkirchen, Upper Austria. The company’s head office and administration are also located at the same address.

Ascendors team of qualified and competent engineers and mechatronic technicians developed the first platform stair lift, the PLG7 for straight staircases in 2007. In 2008, we introduced the PLK8, which was designed to surmount curved staircases and gradient changes. In 2009, Ascendor, acting as the exclusive sales agent for the Swedish company Motala Hissar added the platform elevator MC2000 to its product range. During the course of 2015, we expanded our product range once more with the addition of our unique cabin elevator QuattroPorte and chairlift.

Ascendor products are high quality, brand name products, which set new standards with regard to quality, comfort, safety and design. All our products are manufactured using state-of-the-art equipment and are subjected to strict and comprehensive quality control before they leave our factory, especially our platform stair lift, which will be used by wheelchair owners and requires special safety precautions.

Our highly trained staff and selected sales partners ensure that we can guarantee all our customers excellent planning and assembly as well as a first-rate aftersales service.

Ascendor Philosophy

The Ascendor company philosophy is based on the 'five pillars' described in detail below. Everything we manufacture is built to fulfil the highest possible standards regarding quality, customer orientated satisfaction and care. These five pillars define our ambitions and endeavours and are the focal point of all the activities carried out by our company.

We regard ourselves as a company whose prime objective is in assisting people with disabilities in overcoming structural obstacles. We want our products to bestow a new sense of freedom and independence on them and thereby help improve the quality of their lives.

Ascendor not only takes its responsibility for its employees seriously, but also pays particular regard to its obligation as a reliable and responsible business partner for both customers and suppliers alike.

Ascendor platform lifts are designed to meet the highest quality and safety requirements. Our products also satisfy the demands placed on them by architects and design-conscious customers thanks to the simple yet elegant design. All our products are subjected to comprehensive quality controls before delivery, in order to ensure perfect functionality.

All of our products are made-to-measure. Each single lift is adapted to meet the specific requirements of its surroundings. By focussing on each customers individual requirements, we can ensure an optimal installation and guarantee customer satisfaction.

Not only in terms of product quality, are we market leader, we also attach a great deal of importance to a smooth service process. This is reflected in our selection of service and trading partners. They are carefully selected and their installation personnel are kept up-to-date thanks to our training programme.

Furthermore, here in our company headquarters our own team of competent and experienced technicians are ready to answer your questions and assist you before and after your purchase.
