OUR Story

 Mobility Access Modifications was founded in the year 2000 by Steven Makris, registered builder and managing director. 

After completing high school Steven started a carpentry apprenticeship. During this time Steven worked as a contractor for a small company fitting grab rails in homes around Melbourne. After several years he identified a greater need for mobility access solutions than was currently being offered in Melbourne. At age 24 Steven founded our company and went out on his own. He had one goal in mind when setting up Mobility Access Modifications:

“Give independence and safety to keep people in their homes longer”

Steven and his wife Penny ran the company from their family home in Preston, manufacturing custom banister rails, wedges and small steps from the garage. They would both work long hours. Penny would take care of the paperwork side of the business and booking in the jobs and Steven would work through the day and night keeping up with the demand of the industry. Eventually after several staff were hired to keep up with the growing business it out-grew the home. They relocated to a warehouse in Coburg North to accommodate the growing business. This new space greatly enabled Mobility Access Modifications to expand and excel rapidly in the industry.

Determined to stay ahead, Steve and the team always seek to improve the business. Mobility Access Modifications will continue to grow and serve the needs of our clients.
