Corporate and Social Responsibility

Corporate responsibility and sustainability (CRS) are inherent in every aspect of Shorts’ operations. We endeavour to go beyond our statutory obligations to be a good neighbour, care for our stakeholders and minimise our impact on the environment.

We are proud of the reputation we have built for consistent excellence throughout the decades of dedicated support for the Lift Trade. We continually strive to build upon this reputation by finding new ways to add value and exceed our customers’ expectations. By working in partnership with our customers, we can assist them in reaching their goals.

At Shorts Industries, we are certified to OHSAS 18001 and were the first lift company in the industry to be certified to the updated ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. We undertake regular internal audits of our operations to ensure continuous improvement of all our standards.

We also constantly refine our processes to deliver the products and services our customers require without wasting resources. Simply put, we believe in what we do, working together to continuously improve our quality, expertise and value from design, installation and beyond.
