The long-standing good working order of a Stannah Piccolo lift installed in 1990 at a West Midlands nursery has been partly attributed to the company’s ‘International Rescue’ support service.
The three-person lift continues to cater for children and staff carrying equipment between two floors after a lifetime of support from the specialist servicing plan delivered by the West Midlands and Mid Wales branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing lift servicing and support.
Throughout its lifetime, the Piccolo has also catered for elderly residents and care staff when the nursery building was a residential care home. The company claims to have a host of fully-functional Piccolo lifts over 25 years old in its installation portfolio.
This particular Piccolo has a flamboyant exterior with a hinged access door. The interior has off-white vinyl skin plate walls, concealed ceiling lighting, half-height rear mirror, carpet-tile floor, and original operating panel, complete with heritage Stannah logo.
Manager of Tiger Lily nursery, Melissa Rexworthy, commented: “We inherited this Piccolo lift and are very glad of its services. It plays a vital role in helping us to keep our charges happy, stimulated and refreshed.”
Last month, Stannah spoke to AMP about the R&D processes which help to keep its products at the forefront of the access industry.
This year Stannah is marking 150 years trading in the UK lift industry and joint chairmen, Brian and Alan Stannah, have both won MBEs in recognition of their services to British Manufacturing.
