“This means doing it right for our customers first and foremost – providing the optimum solution at competitive prices together with great service; and doing it right for our stakeholders by providing growth opportunities to our employees and supporting the local community.”

An investor is supporting the start-up company and providing growth capital for future acquisitions.

Phillip is a veteran of the mobility solution industry, with Anglian Lifts benefiting from his decades of experience in the industry plus the expertise of the entire team from his previous company where he was managing director.

A board member of the British Healthcare Trades Association, Phillip has held several senior positions in the access and mobility market, including as managing director at Meditek Stairlifts, where he rose through the ranks from an apprentice engineer.

Phillip and his financial partner have said that they have ambitious plans to grow organically by hiring more engineers as well as via strategic acquisitions of similar and complementary businesses.

Anglian Lifts works with a network of trusted companies which have been hand-picked to bring complementary capabilities and enable the business to cover a wider region.

In addition, the firm recently introduced a partnership program specifically for companies without their own stairlift installation and servicing capabilities, such as mobility shops.

Phillip adds: “We partner with companies which share our ambition and want to do it right. As we grow, so will our partners.”

These companies, he says, will share in Anglian Lifts’ success by referring customers and receiving remuneration whilst maintaining the relationship of each customer.
