A mobility equipment specialist based in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne has become the latest company to graduate from the Stiltz Home Lift Training Academy.
Dolphin Lifts North-East was formed in 1988 and is an independent supplier of stairlift and mobility products in the North East.
Keen to expand the range of mobility products on offer to customers, the company chose to add the Stiltz home lift to their portfolio, stating the importance of learning the skills required to install it.
The Stiltz Home Lifts Training Academy allows selected partner companies to install Stiltz domestic lifts upon completion of a three-day course at the Stiltz headquarters in Kingswinford, West Midlands. Partners also need to undertake three on-site customer installations – overseen by Stiltz technicians – before becoming an Accredited Stiltz Lifts Installer Partner.
Dolphin Lifts North-East sent engineers to the Stiltz purpose-built training facility where they received classroom theory and hands-on practical installation training. The mobility equipment supplier completed its third and final installation in Northumberland in April.
Dolphin Lifts North-East Managing Director Bob Lines said: "We were very excited to partner up with Stiltz Lifts because the type of home lift they manufacture has never been available before. Stiltz has filled the gap in the market with their totally unique product.
"Because Dolphin Lifts North-East is now a fully accredited partner, it means our business is even more self-sufficient – we can sell the Stiltz lift and install it ourselves too. This enables us to offer a complete solution to customers in the North East, we can provide an alternative product to the stairlift which is easier to use and safer for the customer.
"Our engineers were very impressed with the training they received at the academy which they said was thorough and comprehensive. The Stiltz technology is simple and the lifts are straightforward to install because there
are no hydraulics required. The lifts are also very easy to maintain for the end user.”
Gino Farruggio, Stiltz Lifts National Sales Manager – UK Trade, said: "We are delighted to welcome Dolphin Lifts North-East on board as an Accredited Stiltz Lifts Installer Partner and look forward to building a long and successful relationship with them.”
