Sheridan Lifts Ltd has secured a maintenance contract with a second major sports stadium in three months.
The Manchester-based company has been contracted to service and maintain all seven internal lifts within the KCOM Stadium, including four service visits a year.
The KCOM Stadium is the home of Hull City FC and Hull FC Rugby League Club. It is also a major venue for events, conferences, meetings and banqueting parties.
Its current capacity is just over 25,500, with future expansion possible to raise the capacity to 30,000 people.
Sherican’s lifts service sales manager Chris Grailey secured the new client for the company following a tender submission in October 2018.
As part of the service agreement, Sheridan will provide match day cover where an engineer will be based on site each game in case of any lift related emergency with any spectators.
The company said it provided the client with efficient dilapidation reports on each lift to determine the exact state of disrepair of each lift in order to improve performance due to severe historic breakdowns.
The company said: “We are now working with the client to remedy those issues and are looking forward to a fruitful future partnership together.”
In March, Sheridan Lifts won a contract to provide a lift maintenance service to Stoke City FC.
The company will carry out both planned and reactive maintenance for six passenger lifts and lifts for 17 disabled spectator platforms at the bet365 Stadium, as well as providing match-day breakdown coverage enabling the club to respond immediately to any issues.
