Since its establishment in 1982 Lift Specialists Ltd have developed a positive reputation within the lift industry for professional delivery, aiming our strategic business model at the needs of our clients and the ultimate end users.
This mentality has continued as we have grown to our current success, but never have we let our values change, and in some ways the present senior management team sees these values as the reason for our ongoing success, even throughout the last few years of global challenges.
“If we can understand our customer needs, commit to providing those needs and delivering on our promises, we will retain and expand our portfolio base naturally.”
Lift Specialists Ltd believe strongly that their responsibility as a modern caring and sustainable business, goes to its very core.
So we not only work with local and national charitable enterprises where we can, we also focus on our commitment to our customers, the wellbeing of our employees and the impact our business activities have on the environment.
The basis of our sustainability policy and practices are these four themes:
Energy: Reducing energy consumption, being more energy efficient and using renewable energy and ‘alternative technology’
Materials: Choosing, using, re-using and recycling materials during design, manufacture, construction and maintenance to reduce resource requirements
Waste: Producing less waste and recycling more
Pollution: Producing less toxicity, water, noise and spacial pollution
