COVID 19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – COVID-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. The Stiltz Group continue to review activities on a daily basis to ensure we comply with safety directives at all times. At the same time, we look to balance this with providing the expected levels of service and support to our customers while being mindful of minimising risk for all concerned.

We are acutely aware that our customers tend to fall into higher risk categories, whether due to age, or as a result of pre-existing medical conditions. Therefore it is all the more important for our current and future customers to maintain their safety and independence at home with the help of their homelifts; this contributes towards the current policy of social distancing, especially important for seniors and those with compromised immune systems. Reduction of accidents within the home at this time will also help minimize the burden on the increasingly stressed healthcare system.

We are keen to ensure those who need new homelifts installed and those who require their lifts to be serviced, can expect these activities to take place without fear of risk to their health. There are multiple online resources that will guide you to assist in providing a safe workplace for your employees and help protect the customers whose home you visit. Two we would recommend are:

OSHA - click here to visit

We are in this together and are standing by to offer you as much support as possible during this challenging time. If you have any questions, concerns or doubts about anything, please contact your territory manager or the technical services team and we will do our best to assist.

Sincerely

Mark Blomfield

President

Stiltz Lifts has continued its rapid growth by expanding its operation in the USA.

The home elevator manufacturer set up its stateside headquarters in Pennsylvania in 2013 under the leadership of experienced home accessibility specialist, Mark Blomfield.

Now Stiltz Lifts has moved its facility to Bethlehem, which is more than double the size of the previous offices in Allentown.

The move will enable the residential elevator company to increase its inventories and deliver more of its unique range of home elevator products to customers across the country, faster than ever before. The business will also improve service levels and offer superior training and demonstration areas for its trade partners.

Mr Blomfield, president of Stiltz Lifts USA, who has substantially increased his workforce since 2013, said: “We always figured on three years being around the time we would need to move from our first location. Although we typically deliver our home lifts quicker than most manufacturers, we want to improve on our service levels further and we can only do that if we can hold the additional stock that growing demand requires.”

Stiltz Lifts saw significant sales in 2016 and has already surpassed what it achieved in 2015. Mr Blomfield said: “We have a unique product that all our trade partners love selling. With more and more people needing a floor-to-floor accessibility solution, and a tendency to avoid going for a stairlift, demand for our product is growing and growing.

“As we continue to expand our USA distribution and installation network, demand for technical training will grow, so it is also important that we offer the training facilities expected by our partners. The new location allows us to train on more products in a comfortable environment. We should be good here for a while, but the goal is to outgrow the new place as quickly as possible!”
