Industrial flooring manufacturer partner with Lift West
Ecotile are delighted to announce their partnership with a new distributor – Lift West Limited.
Founded in 1987 as a forklift servicing provider, Lift West Limited consisted of 1 man, a van and a small lock-up unit in Martock Somerset.
Since being founded, Lift West Limited has seen constant growth, becoming a Nissan Forklift main dealer in 1998 and moving to new premises in Seavington St Michael, Somerset.
The next few years saw the business grow to include many of the industry’s biggest names, JCB, Moffett, Ausa and Genie to name but a few.
Lift West Limited is now the UK’s leading independently owned material handling equipment, servicing and training provider with over 80 employees on 3 sites across the UK and they have recently diversified in to industrial, commercial and fire doors.
The synergy between Ecotile and Lift West made the partnership an obvious step for both sides. Each firmly believes that no two customer’s applications are the same and so we offer an individual solution tailored to each client’s specific requirements. Furthermore anyone who needs a forklift truck or an industrial or garage door is likely to need a hardwearing, low maintenance floor that is quick and easy to install so we are looking forward to a long and productive partnership.
