Our Story

In 1997, we began to provide safety equipment for people working on roofs in The Netherlands. At that time, safety was already more of a calling than a business. Now, we are a rapidly growing international company – with offices in Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, Asia and Australia – that designs safety solutions for the most complex buildings around the world.

Today, we still have the same aspiration that we had almost twenty years ago: to make working at heights safer and easier – whether work is being done on a roof, on a scaffold, in a suspended platform or in a gondola. Having reinvented the way people work at heights, we have become known as a leading specialist that delivers custom solutions, based on the most challenging requirements.

The simplicity of our solutions and our many successful projects in the past prove that innovation is in our nature. Always focused on the requirements of our customer, these innovations have one thing in common: they facilitate the work being done without ever compromising safety. This comes natural to us.

For that reason, there is no building in the world that we can’t handle.

We provide safety – at any height.



The XSPhilosophy, the standard of XSPlatforms, is very important to us – it is reflected in all layers of our organization and it is observed by everyone who carries our brand. The following core values define the way we do business – they govern all our actions and decisions, both as individuals and as a company:

Safety above all

People who work at height should be able to completely trust on the safety and reliability of the equipment they’re working with. That is why we test all of our products according to the highest safety standards in the world. The Engineering department at XSPlatforms is the first in the industry to be certified by the TÜV quality institute and authorized to perform CE-testing. Every step of the product life cycle, from design through maintenance, is performed according to certified procedures. Only if our products exceed all requirements are they good enough to leave our premises. Also in terms of ease of use our solutions have to surpass the high standards we set for ourselves. And because they are so user friendly, the risk of incorrect use is extremely slim. It’s not without reason that we hold a zero accident track record.

Focus on the customer

Because our customers range from property owner to end user, and they all have their own way of looking at things, we have to take a lot of wishes and needs into consideration. Whether it’s fall protection or facade access equipment: we always start from the perspectives of all parties involved. What are the characteristics of the building? What does the working situation of the user look like? What functions are required and needed? How can we make sure there is a minimal impact on the structure and architecture of the building? We continually ask ourselves these questions so that we come up with the best possible options. That is why we don’t ‘make products’, but offer solutions that perfectly fit your needs. Solutions with the right balance between design, functionality and safety.

Simplicity defines quality

The best solutions are often characterized by simplicity in design and use. That is what we strive for in all of our solutions: a balance between functionality and ease of use. We believe our products should facilitate the work being done: make it easier, safer and more efficient. Our products should have a minimal effect on the work that needs to be executed. No fuss, but optimal functionality through simplicity and ease of use.

The best isn’t good enough

Only the very best is good enough for us. Whether it is the material we use, our products, our customer support or our business operations. We set high standards for ourselves and aim to exceed expectations. Because only the very best is good enough. With every innovation and every product improvement we make, we keep setting the standards higher. Always on the outlook for new challenges. New opportunities to make the difference between working at height and working safely and easily at height.

There is no such thing as a problem

We don’t believe in problems, we believe in challenges. Where others see difficulties, we see possibilities. And whenever something seems impossible, we’ll look for a way to make it possible.

That is why we don’t see ourselves as a producer or supplier: we offer solutions. Solutions that make working at height safer and easier.
