Bilco, a leading horizontal access products manufacturer, is celebrating 25 years in the United Kingdom with its broadest product portfolio to date and significant installations across the nation. Bilco opened its UK and European office in Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk in April 1989 and for the last 25 years has worked to grow its reputation amongst architects, engineers, specifiers and the construction trades by providing the right access solutions.

“Over the years Bilco has made great strides in improving safety conditions and providing the industry with high-quality products. Since joining Bilco in 2000, I have been pleased to see that many of the leading architects and contractors consider Bilco the “go to” company for standard, off–the-shelf access hatches and smoke vents,” said James Fisher, Bilco UK General Manager. “We provide additional support with BIM objects, NBS specifications and CAD drawings, and by offering technical advice to identify the best solution for each project.”

With continually changing standards, Bilco UK has amended its product line to reflect modifications in local legislation and construction methods. In many cases this has helped the company land some of the most high-profile projects in the country, including the Olympic Park, The Shard and Crossrail, as well as many university, hospital, school, retail development and other construction projects.

“We believe in continually reviewing our products to improve them where possible and to give our customers the support and service they need to make informed decisions when specifying,” said Fisher. “Bilco’s first 25 years in the UK have been exciting and challenging and we are looking forward to remaining at the forefront of access solutions for the next 25 years.”

Founded in the United States in 1926, The Bilco Company has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty access products and has continued to drive the business forward with a strong commitment to new product development and exceptional customer service. The company’s product line includes access hatches, CE-marked natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilators (NSHEVS), floor doors and access covers, fixed and retractable ladders and associated safety products such as the market-leading LadderUp® safety post. All Bilco products come with a warranty and comply with the latest legislation.
