“A reliable quality lift is the sum of its quality parts”
We remain only one of a handful of independent UK lift companies able to design and manufacture our own products. We build new lifts to award-winning standards at our West Midlands Head Quarters. Parts that we do not make ourselves, such as control panels, drive units and door operating systems – are sourced from carefully chosen open protocol units from UK manufacturers and suppliers which conform to our stringent in-house design office specifications.

Wayne Haywood, Production Director
