Statement
COVID-19

Issued 4th November 2020

Coronavirus: Covid-19 continues to bring an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. has been and will continue to review activities daily to comply with the guidelines issued by the Government.

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 home care 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.

You can contact our service and breakdown helpline any time, day or night, on 0330 053 5749.

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 the 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. 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 before 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.

All office and field-based staff will continue to be issued regular health and safety bulletins.

All field-based staff will confirm they are clear of symptoms before 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. We all owe a duty of care to our families, other employees, our customers and the rest of our community. Our priority is customer and staff safety whilst continuing to provide the necessary home care support to ensure vital independence.

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year for most people across the globe, and Stiltz Home Lifts has been no exception.

Stiltz has always believed the best way to stay focused on the future is to recruit the best people. Individuals who can help drive the business forward and keep the momentum behind improving our product and service offering.

“Product development and management is key to keeping ahead of the curve,” says Stiltz new Global Product Manager, Nigel Leaver. Mr. Leaver worked with an electrical equipment manufacturing business where he moved through many different areas of the company; from Customer Service to Marketing, Product Development to Business Unit Management. His experience in operations and production meant he was looking for somewhere to share his wealth of knowledge and make an impact.

After moving back to the UK from a short stint of living in Dubai, Mr. Leaver has joined at an important time for Stiltz Home Lifts where he will be focusing on developing ways to innovate and improve on our product offerings. “I see my position as a pivotal role, helping coordinate, improve and document all aspects of the product within the business.”

Stiltz Home Lifts Product Standards

He continued “Initially I’m going to focus on getting to know the Stiltz products, such as the Duo+ and Trio+, inside and out. Then I can move onto looking at things like materials, options, product standards. I see this role as vital to ensuring that every product we sell across the globe has the same exacting standards that Stiltz demands.”

When asked why he joined Stiltz, Mr. Leaver responded “I was excited by the prospects and opportunities that Stiltz could offer. I had my interviews with Lachlan Faulkner (Co-Founder and CCO) and Mike Lord (CEO). Their passion for the company and products plus their exciting plans for the future to improve and push forward only cemented my interest.”
