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 received a visit from the Mayor of Dudley as part of his 100 business pledge.

Councillor Dave Tyler made a commitment to visit 100 borough businesses during his first year in office.

Cllr Tyler, pictured with Stiltz Lifts UK Trade Sales Manager Gino Farruggio (far left), Finance Director Peter Geobey and Chairman Mike Lord (far right), made the electoral pledge in order to celebrate the achievements of local businesses after being elected Mayor of Dudley in June.

He is also promoting the support available from Dudley Business First, the council’s single point of contact for business support, providing access to advice, funding, relocation and training.

Stiltz Lifts welcomed the borough’s first citizen to its headquarters in Kingswinford in the West Midlands with a tour around its offices and factory.

Mike Lord, chairman of Stiltz Lifts, said: “It was an honour for Stiltz Lifts to welcome the Mayor of Dudley to our Kingswinsford offices. It was a great opportunity for us to show Cllr Tyler what a thriving business we have become in the borough.

“We are growing at our phenomenal rate every year and creating more and more jobs in the area which can only be a positive thing for the West Midlands. We enjoyed sharing our vision for the future with the Mayor who was in awe at what Stiltz Lifts has achieved to date.”

Cllr Tyler said: “It was a real pleasure to visit such a thriving local business. I have made a very clear pledge to visit 100 local businesses during my year in office, which allows me to help celebrate the skills, work ethics and pride that goes into these firms every day. We are well over half way through that challenge and Stiltz Lifts was another great example of a fantastic local business.”
