At AVS we are always thinking about steps!

AVS Steps is a worldwide leader in designing and manufacturing steps for passenger vehicles. Founded in 1993 the company grew rapidly into the largest European supplier of electric and manually operated access steps for taxis, minibuses, ambulances and other accessible vehicles including individual mobility vehicles.

In 2017 AVS Steps was acquired by Rhino Products Ltd., the UK’s leading external van accessory manufacturer – who have added AVS Steps’ products to their existing range of roof racks, roof bars, ladder restraints and rear access steps. As part of this acquisition AVS Steps’ offices and production facility was moved from Wem, Shropshire to Rhino’s 55,000 sq ft headquarters in Deeside, Flintshire.

With the strength of the Rhino Group now behind it, AVS Steps always ensure they manufacture the right step for every vehicle, improving access for thousands of people getting into vehicles every day.

The AVS Steps product range includes several cassette design steps using both electric and manual operation, and in more recent years a growing need for improved ground clearance on smaller vehicles has led to the development of a range of cantilever steps and very slim cassette steps.

Our various product lines are supplied worldwide via our network of trusted dealer, stockists and resellers. We strive to simplify the fitting process making it as quick and easy as possible with specially designed fitting kits.
