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.

We are delighted to announce we have doubled the size of our sales staff in the North and moved the Stiltz Lifts operations to a new base in West Yorkshire.

In January, 2015, we decided to open a Northern Office in Leeds city centre in order to place ourselves in a strategically important part of the country.

Since then, Stiltz Lifts has opened a new 15,000-square foot central Midlands Office in Kingswinford, West Midlands which acts as our headquarters and main home lift assembly and warehouse. We also have a Southern Office in Wokingham, Berkshire.

Our decision to double the sales team at the Northern Office from seven to 14 and move to larger premises in Guiseley, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, follows rapid growth within the last two years.

Stiltz Lifts has also recently launched Lifton – a new and inspiring premium home lift brand – and sales consultants have been brought in to provide additional sales support for this exciting new product.

Our Northern Office continues to be headed up by industry specialist Michael Loftus, who has more than 20 years of experience in the mobility market.

Stiltz Lifts Director – Commercial, Lachlan Faulkner said: “We’re delighted to have expanded our Northern operations.

“The decision to double the sales team at a Northern Office and move to bigger offices is in direct response to the growing demand for our products.”
