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 Lifts has continued its rapid growth by further expanding our North America operations with the launch of a new website in Canada.

The company was founded in the UK in 2010 and opened a USA base in Pennsylvania three years later under the leadership of Mark Blomfield.

Mark has more than 20 years of experience in the home accessibility market and acts as president for Stiltz Home Lifts USA. He is also responsible for operations in Canada which is seeing an increase in demand for domestic lifts.

Stiltz has invested in a new website (www.stiltzliftscanada.com) which has been specifically aimed at the Canadian market. All sales of home lifts in Canada will continue to be delivered direct from the Stiltz USA base.

Mark said: “We are very excited about expanding our dealer sales channel in Canada. We knew we needed to address the growth in sales by providing our existing Canadian partners with a website that was targeted to consumers in the region.

“It is also our objective to appoint more selected partners in Canada which will strengthen our trade network and provide us with full coverage across Canada as we have achieved in the UK and USA.

“We wish to have a trade dealer representing Stiltz in every major city in Canada, however, we are selective about who we partner with as it is paramount that customers receive the highest level of service from them.

“At Stiltz, we offer a unique product which provides end users with a practical, stylish and viable alternative to a stairlift and our trade dealers enjoy selling it. More and more people are looking for a through-floor accessibility solution whether it be because of a mobility issue or to ‘future proof’ their property so demand will only continue to increase for our home lifts.”
