COVID 19 Statement

Coronavirus – Covid-19 presents us with an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. continues to review activities on a daily basis to comply with Government directives.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through whom we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep the most vulnerable living safely in their own homes. Reducing the instance of accidents within the home will help reduce stress on the NHS hospital care system.

For existing customers, a Stiltz Homelift can be that lifeline to independence. Our homecare support policy means Stiltz engineers continue to provide an essential service by maintaining customers’ lifts for ongoing safe, reliable and independent access, while acting within Government guidelines.

For new homelift installations we offer the options of a phone call, remote video consultation via tablet/laptop/smartphone, or email consultation. For those with an urgent in-home consultation need, we will minimise risk by following latest Government guidelines.

Additional processes have been put in place to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

· We will request confirmation that nobody at the property we are due to visit has Covid-19 or is defined as extremely vulnerable, and in need of being shielded. If Covid-19 is present, or a person is isolating or deemed as extremely vulnerable, we will follow government advice.

· All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz installers/engineers will wash or sanitise their hands prior to entering your property and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, will refuse offers of a beverage and will maintain the prescribed 2 metre distance

· Regular health and safety bulletins will be issued to all office and field-based staff

· All field-based staff will be asked, on a daily basis, to confirm they are clear of symptoms prior to commencing their working day

· All staff who fall ill with Covid-19 or who are self-isolating, will receive full pay during the period they are indisposed.

Stiltz will follow government advice at all times. Our priority is customer and staff safety, whilst continuing to provide the necessary homecare support to ensure vital independence.

Stiltz Home Lifts is proud to have been recognised as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe by the Financial Times.

The company was listed as 167th in the FT 1000 which ranks the top 1,000 businesses from 31 European countries that have achieved the highest annual growth rate in revenue between 2014 and 2017.

Within the stipulated time period, Stiltz Home Lifts has grown 106.3 per cent and closed 2017 with a turnover of £14.3million. It was listed as the 34th highest-ranking UK business and the second fastest-growing health company in Europe.

The manufacturer, founded in 2010, offers a range of attractive and well-designed home lift solutions which plug straight into the wall using a standard domestic socket. The home lifts provide homeowners with a simple and safe way of moving between the floors of their homes.

Mike Lord, chief executive at Stiltz Home Lifts, said: “We’re really proud to be included in the FT 1000 list. This high ranking recognises that we’re not only the fastest-growing home lift company, but one of the fastest-growing companies in the UK and Europe too.

“At Stiltz, we’re changing the way people move around their homes with a great looking and easy-to-use home lift solution that, unlike an unattractive and old-fashioned stairlift, will compliment customers’ décor and remove the stigma that limited mobility can bring. Every day our home lifts, which can be installed almost anywhere in the home, are improving the lives of people who find the stairs challenging.

“Installing a Stiltz home lift means independence can be maintained, allowing Stiltz customers to stay in the home they love without having to downsize to a bungalow or apartment. Far from being a product solely aimed at older people though, we’re finding many homeowners are buying our lifts as an elegant, in-home lifestyle option; future-proofing their home against any eventuality.

“Our aim at Stiltz is to make owning a home lift as normal as installing a dishwasher or washing machine. As awareness and acceptance of home lifts is growing so quickly, we are confident of achieving an even higher ranking in the FT 1000 next year!”
