About Us

Founded in 1992, Ascension Wheelchair Lifts was created by its parent company, AGM Container Controls, in order to diversify and support the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in removing barriers and empowering people of all different mental and physical abilities.

Ascension’s line of wheelchair lifts has become distinctive in the industry and well known for providing modern aesthetics, ease of use and installation, user-centered designs, best in class safety features, and the industry’s longest warranty. Ascension designs and manufacturers their wheelchair lift models in Tucson, Arizona.

Ascension’s portable and permanently-installed wheelchair lifts are central to the focus and daily operation of more than 2,000 schools, colleges/universities, convention centers, concert halls, hotels, restaurants, parks and government buildings across the globe. Some of Ascension’s prominent customers include: United Nations, Facebook, NASA, MIT, LAUSD, NY Department of Education, McCormick Place, Disneyland, T-Mobile Arena, Radio City Music Hall, The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, Venetian Macao, University of St. Andrews, Queen’s Hall and Marina Bay Sands Resort and Casino.

Accessibility is Opportunity

Whether it’s larger fonts, wider walkways, or just a lift up, small accommodations make a big difference. In fact, they can open up a world of opportunities. Equal access means all of us participate in life together, as a community. That’s how we know that every Ascension lift we build helps to open the world a little wider for everyone living here.

Accessibility is Connection

Accessibility naturally connects people and places, building experiences and relationships. No barriers, means always being able to say, “You’re welcome here. Come in and be you.” At Ascension, we want to ensure that connecting and sharing moments is accessible to everyone.

Accessibility is Community

Ascension is more than just a company, and the individuals who make Ascension work, believe in universal inclusion, not only as a possibility, but as a necessity. As a testament to that belief, many of our employees come to us with extensive professional and volunteer credentials focused around community health and disability services, such as the Special Olympics, the Woman’s Foundation of Southern Arizona, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
