Stannah Lifts has won a six-year contract to maintain a substantial lift portfolio for Bristol City Council which includes 146 lifts across 88 housing blocks.
Stannah has worked on lift refurbishments in local housing in the city and the new contract marks an extension of its work with the council.
Dan White, Stannah’s South West and South Wales branch manager, said that the previous lift supplier had been with the council for 18 years.
He said: “At Stannah, we celebrated our 150th anniversary in 2017, so longevity is our middle name. Our Bristol engineering team has a wealth of experience and expertise to enhance the Council’s housing lift portfolio.
“Our branch also manages lift stock at other significant Bristol landmarks, including the University of Bristol, all our own lifts at the marvellous SS Great Britain visitor attraction, all lifts at Bristol airport, all Network Rail lifts in our region and the maintenance lifts on the magnificent Severn Bridge.”
Nigel Robbins, project engineer for lifts at Bristol City Council, said: “The Stannah team based in Bristol has greatly impressed me with the quality and expertise of their lift services, particularly in housing.
“They schedule their work with meticulous attention to our residents’ needs and the health and safety of everyone using or working on their equipment. After completing several lift refurbishments in our residential housing buildings, they have proved the value of their services.
“They provide best and honest advice to help us maximise the performance of each lift in our portfolio. We strive to keep a local supply chain and Stannah is a perfect fit. We look forward to a long, cost-effective partnership that delivers the best value to our Bristol residents.”
