We believe it is crucial that our customers and partners perceive us as committed and respectful, and that our actions are exemplified by our integrity. An important driver is the knowledge that our efforts make a difference in the lives of individuals. We are also driven by the ongoing need to continuously improve, enhance and develop our solutions.
At our Kingswinford site in the West Midlands, we manufacture stairlifts which are distributed to our network of trade partners, and for direct private and local council installations in the UK. They are also exported to countries including the US, China and Australia. In the last few years, we have made substantial investments to enhance productivity in the manufacturing process across sites in the UK and the Netherlands, focusing on simplification and automation and increasing capacity to cope with rising global demand.
