Liftline Limited was incorporated in August 1987.
The aims of the company were to provide lift design and consultancy services to a range of companies whose business involved various aspects of lifts, whether by way of design, installation, refurbishment, maintenance or user.
The Principal Director began his career with a number of respected lift installation companies following his qualification as Bachelor of Science at the Sheffield City Polytechnic.
Based on past experiences, it was apparent that many companies relied too heavily on the lift companies themselves to examine and specify necessary works. It was felt that by introducing an independent advisor, clients were not only protected from tying themselves down to a single manufacturer but they could also ensure value for money. The company's understanding of the industry allows it to provide that vital link between client and supplier.
"Liftline - The First Choice!"
The company began providing engineering design services to many lift installation and supply companies. These initial close working contacts have been maintained over the years which puts Liftline in an ideal situation to oversee installation works and keep up to date with modern trends and developments.
Liftline naturally progressed and developed the consultancy side of the business so that in recent years consultancy projects have provided 100% of all fees.
Over the years the company has continued its steady progress specialising in providing services to other Consulting Engineers. This relieves them of the difficulties of finding suitably experienced staff, yet allows them to operate in areas of lift work which may exceed their own expertise.
With the introduction of the Lifts Regulations, and a new European Lift Standard, the lift industry is undergoing a great deal of change. Added to the replacement of the HSE's guidance notes, professional assistance has never before been more important.
