Obam Stairlifts expands team with two new recruits

Lincolnshire-based Obam Stairlifts has appointed two new members of staff to its engineering team: Adrian Hallam, who will do servicing and maintenance work as well as out-of-hours breakdown cover, and Simon Wright, the new logistics coordinator.

Adrian is an experienced and qualified engineer from Newark and Simon, from North Hykeham, has eight years’ experience in planning and logistics and recently spent a year organising the installation team at Swale Heating.

Having quickly settled into his new role, Adrian said: "It’s a great company to work for. The team are friendly, loyal and trustworthy – which is a great attribute, especially as we work with lots of vulnerable people.

"Every day is different, and I enjoy meeting our customers and using my problem-solving skills to help get them regain the use of their stairlift as quickly as possible.”

On joining the company, Simon commented: "It’s great to see Obam Stairlifts taking a more strategic approach to its planning.

"In my new role I’ll be looking at where we can make the best use of our engineers’ time, while still delivering our high standard of care to our customers.”

In addition to the two new members of staff, Obam Stairlifts has invested in office renovations and an extension to its showroom.

Obam Stairlifts Director Chris Butroid said: "This year we’re steadily developing a strong team to take us through the next phase of growth as a business and I’m delighted to welcome Simon and Adrian to the team.

"In addition to new staff and office improvements, we’re almost ready to launch our new website, which will allow our customers to get access to more information, advice and guidance before they get in touch with us.”

Obam Stairlifts was established in 2000 and is located in Sturton-by-Stow, Lincolnshire. The company provides installation and maintenance service for stairlifts, through-floor-lifts and hoists.
