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.

High achieving manufacturer, Stiltz Homelifts, is proud to announce its debut in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. Ranking 43rd, this is a significant achievement for Stiltz. The 2021 league table also highlights the important contribution that private companies have made during the pandemic.

Stiltz manufactures a range of contemporary domestic lifts. These products are disrupting the traditional stairlift industry whilst safeguarding against the ever-growing accessible housing crisis.

Fast-Growing International Sales

Compiled by Fast Track, the table ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales measured over a two-year period. Stiltz saw an average annual international sales growth of 75%, international sales of £16.1m, with total sales equalling £27.5m.  Stiltz was also recognised for their recruitment drive during the pandemic. Global staff numbers have now reached 223, with Stiltz currently recruiting for sales executives, engineers and carpenters/builders. 2020 also saw the launch of Stiltz flagship 36,000sqft HQ premises based in the West Midlands. The new HQ accommodates a Training Centre of Excellence, customer services, state-of-the-art R&D, extensive warehousing and a customer showroom.

Honoured to be recognised

Lachlan Faulkner, Stiltz Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer enthused: “We are truly honoured to be recognised by HSBC International Track 200, an accolade we hold in the highest regard. I am particularly proud of our performance during the pandemic and the hard work of the Stiltz team. The demand for Stiltz Homelifts continues to grow as living at home safely and independently is more important than ever, especially when you consider the lack of accessible houses now and in the future. As the world’s population ages, Stiltz Homelifts continue to play a significant part in averting an appropriate housing shortage. We look forward to continuing on this path of growth and success”.

Placement on the HSBC International Track 200 league table follows Stiltz ranking in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, achieving the prestigious Queens’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade (2020), Lloyds Exported of the Year (2019) and two consecutive rankings in the Financial Times FT 1000 list.

Pride of the Midlands

27 companies headquartered in the Midlands (compared to 15 last year) have won places on the league table, including 17 new entrants. These regional stars have grown their international sales by an average of 59% a year over the last two years to a total of £892m, all are profitable and together they employ more than 18,000 people.

Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC UK, commented: “After a challenging start to 2021, all eyes are on the companies that will drive a return to growth in 2021. We are confident that the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of businesses such as those in the Midlands listed on International Track 200 will carry them forward. These companies show the strength, ambition and resilience of businesses across the UK and are the sort of businesses we are proud to support every day. ”
