Stiltz lift the spirits after two remarkable first years in home lifts industry

Share Article

Stiltz has established itself as one of the leading brands in the domestic lifts market after just 24 months of trading. The Berkshire company has been able to achieve this level of success after introducing three new through-floor lift products - the first of their kind available in the United Kingdom.

Stiltz Lifts launched in the United Kingdom in 2010

We're overjoyed to have become one of the market leaders in the lifts industry in such a relatively short space of time.

Home lifts specialist Stiltz is celebrating its second year anniversary in the United Kingdom.

The Berkshire company has quickly established itself as one of the leading brands in the domestic lifts industry after its first 24 months of trading in this country, achieving its second consecutive year of profitability after record sales.

Founded in 2011, Stiltz was set up by Cameron Gillespie and Lachlan Faulkner after successfully manufacturing and installing lifts back home in Sydney, Australia. The lifts business subsequently opened its premises in Wokingham and has not looked back since.

Stiltz had immediate success with the launch of the Stiltz Duo Lift – the first through-floor lift of its kind available in the UK.

The lift has the smallest footprint of any residential lift on the market and it is also the quietest. The Duo uses a self-contained motor system instead of hydraulics and simply plugs into a normal 13 amp power socket like any other household appliance.

So impressed by this innovate and revolutionary new product, Stiltz was invited by organisers of the Ideal Home Show to showcase the Duo Lift as part of its ‘Home of the Future’ in March, 2012 at Earl’s Court in London. The Duo Lift was the perfect addition to the two-storey set and was the only means of access for presenter Suzi Perry, from The Gadget Show, to move between the two levels of the home.

Stiltz pressed on and later brought out the Stiltz Trio Lift with a deeper lift car and wider opening. This allowed extra space to fit a standard wheelchair.

The company’s latest addition to its Stiltz home lifts range is the Vista Lift –the first standing polycarbonate lift on the domestic lifts market. The lift’s clear design is aimed at blending into a home’s decor. Stiltz returned to showcase the Vista Lift at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas with its modern and sleek design attracting lots of interest from visitors.

In 2013, Stiltz has already redesigned and relaunched its website with a comprehensive overview of its lifts range. New features have been added including a section to view new case studies of recent installations.

Mr Faulkner said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating our company’s second birthday and second successive year of profitability. We have had fantastic support from customers in the UK and are overjoyed to have become one of the market leaders in a relatively short space of time.

“Stiltz has been able to achieve this level of success because of our continuing commitment to re-investing in new innovative lifts. We now have three products to offer customers and because of the unique technology we use we feel we are able to offer a product that is unmatched in the home lifts marketplace.

“We’ve also invested in the Stiltz website as we felt it needed to reflect the position we now hold in the industry. It has now has far more information about the products we offer at Stiltz. We have a number of plans for the next year and are looking forward to an exciting 2013 in the UK.”

Stiltz Lifts UK is the sole supplier, manufacturer and installer of Stiltz home lifts. Based in Wokingham, Berkshire, the company was founded in the United Kingdom and has a manufacturing facility in China.

Stiltz gained its experience designing domestic lifts and elevators in Australia for more than two decades. The lifts are through-floor and fit in the home - the first of their kind to be available in the UK.

The company developed the lift to make life easier for elderly or disabled people and help them to stay in their own homes for longer when stairs become too much. Unlike a stairlift, the Stiltz lift carries two people comfortably and is a hassle-free and cost-effective alternative.

The Stiltz Home Lifts range includes the Standard Duo Lift, the Vista Lift and the Trio Lift. Stiltz’s lifts do not need fixing to walls and can be fitted almost anywhere in the home with no major building work. They have the smallest footprint for a residential lift on the market.

The lifts are also the quietest on the market because they do not use hydraulics and are instead powered a unique electric motor drive system that is located discretely in the top of the lift car.
All our domestic lifts are powered by a simple normal 13-amp power socket like any other household appliance which uses less power than an electric kettle.

No planning permission is needed for Stiltz lifts – just a standard building notice application. VAT exemption and grants from the Disabilities Facilities Grant are also available.
