Lift Source (UK) Ltd commenced trading in 1990 as a specialist Lift Supplier to the UK lift industry. Based in the Midlands it now installs lifts across the UK. The company was formed by Steve Seymour, who still some 25 years later is our Managing Director, giving help, advice and benefit of some 40+ years of experience.
From the outset the principals to be adhered to, provide products fit for purpose on time and to specification. In addition his policy of being proactive, user friendly and understanding is still our operating mantra.
During the years we have supplied our products to many organisations, builders, developers, blue chip companies and the like. These customers remain with us to provide the backbone of our business, 3000 projects plus and still counting.
One area Steve has always maintained is a sound financial base and we have always operated with a profit, even in the recession years which provides a comfort factor to our customers.
Lift Source have always been progressive starting an apprenticeship training scheme in 1999. This policy is now reaping dividends as all our operatives are fully trained, employed by the company, have received health and safety training, scaffold erection training and first aid training allowing the company a solid base for the future. One principle Steve has insisted on is that our teams will always be a two man operation unlike others who promote single man installations. This single man solution in Steve’s opinion is not in the best interest of Lift Source or its customers and our solution provides improved on-site safety.
During the years Lift Source have been instrumental in the design and innovation of many new products which forms the basis of our current supply.
We were one of the first (UK) companies to achieve ISO 9001, we are now ISO 18001 and have full product design to The Lift Regulations 1997. In addition, to provide single source supply, scaffolding, lifting beams and now landing edge protection is standard to satisfy current Health and Safety issues. Lift Source were the innovators, others followed.
Other innovations by Lift Source:-
- 3 years parts guarantee options from installation combined with cost effective in-depth service procedures.
- Open protocol design as standard with UK based component supplier chain.
- Cost effective long term preventative maintenance plans.
Due to our training of young people, which started in 1999, we now have a well-trained vibrant team allowing Steve to take a well earnt rest. He will still be the driving force but will operate on a three day week, although he is still very much hands on and will continue to be so.
As from 1st April 2016 a new team will be installed for the future. This team is young, enthusiastic and more importantly has the drive to be successful (a testament to Steve’s foresight).
The first 25 years have been good, the next 25 years will be better. A business for the future.
