Our history

Our company was formed in 1992. We started by buying, reconditioning and reselling stairlifts from other stairlift makers. In a short space of time, demand outstripped supply and so we decided we needed other supply options to maintain our commitment to exceptional customer service.

Developing a new stairlift

We took the step to develop and design our own stairlifts. The Superglide Stairlift was born, with a wealth of great features it became a market leader, to this day it remains at the forefront of stairlift technology.

Designed to be customer focused, simple, easy to install and maintain we wanted to remove some of the difficulties we had experienced with selling other stairlifts.

We acquired motor and gearbox manufacturing facilities based in Scotland. This ensured we have complete control over the quality and technology of the most importance piece of any stairlift.

Technological innovations

We were the first stairlift manufacturer to develop a system using DC batteries to power a stairlift motor. The advantages of smooth power delivery and the ability to operate during a power cut have made the DC battery the recognised standard in today's stairlifts.

We are one of the largest suppliers of stairlifts direct to customers. We produce more than 50,000 new stairlifts every year and have hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide.
