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 been ranked as one of Britain’s fastest growing SME exporters after being listed as seventh in the third annual Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100.

The report ranks small and medium-sized (SME) enterprises with the fastest-growing international sales over the past two years.

At Stiltz Lifts, we have now installed our home lifts in more than 20 countries and the company was the highest-ranked business in the West Midlands. Strong sales in the USA, Germany and France helped us increase exports by 146 per cent per year to £3.2million in 2016.

The research was carried out by Fast Track who has published league tables of top-performing private companies with The Sunday Times for the last 20 years.

Stiltz was founded in 2010 with the launch of the hugely popular Stiltz Duo Home Lift. The phenomenal success of the Duo led to the release of several more products including the Stiltz Trio Home Lift, which can accommodate a standard-sized wheelchair and the contemporary and clear-sided Stiltz Vista lift. We have also expanded our operations with dedicated offices in the North (West Yorkshire), the Midlands (West Midlands) and the South (Berkshire).

Last year, Stiltz also introduced the Lifton Home Lift brand to the market. Positioned as a premium product, the brand sits well alongside Stiltz own range. New products are due to be launched later this year.

Stiltz Lifts Chairman Mike Lord said: “I’m extremely proud of the hardworking team at Stiltz Lifts. To achieve this level of success in such a short space of time is testament to our innovative home lift technology, the commitment of the staff and the fact that there is a growing global need for our products.”

Gareth Oakley, managing director SME banking at Lloyds Banking Group, the title sponsor, said: “For businesses that take the leap to trade overseas, the rewards can be significant – the strong growth achieved by this year’s SME Export Track 100 is proof of that.”

The Government’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said: “Companies are seizing the huge international demand for innovative UK products and services.”
