Utilise Leading Modernisation Turnaround

Your Lift Modernisation Partner

Many business sectors rely on the continuous flow of goods and people through lifts. Therefore, the timely availability of high-performing and reliable modernisation equipment is essential to ensure this flow is not interrupted.

Availability and customisation are at the core of all our modernisation equipment and packages.

All our standard products are available from stock within our Bradford warehouse. Our in-house technicians then adapt and customise these items to your site-specific requirements.

We centre our complete modernisation packages around our highly adaptable DMG Lift Controller. These packages contain various electrical and mechanical components, from the lift car and landing fixtures to pump units and door operators, extending your lift’s operational lifespan.

Knowledge and Expertise Throughout The Project Lifecycle

From Car and Landing Fixture upgrades through to complete modernisation package refurbishments, with our range of leading lift modernisation equipment, we have a wealth of experience across a multitude of Traction and Hydraulic Lift modernisation projects.

This experience shapes our guidance and advice, which is central to all our services. Therefore, you can be confident in the solution we provide and our unwavering support throughout the project lifecycle.

Our products meet the most challenging of environments and applications. Our team is on-hand to discuss your specific project requirements, and together, we will build and agree on the correct product specification for your application.

We have significant expertise in lift modernisation, working on local and national modernisation projects, and providing solutions to even the most complex requirements.

When undertaking lift modernisation projects, there is the potential to have many different OEM or even third-party hardware installed onto the lift. Our team will oversee that our new components are fully compatible with your existing ones.

Lift Controllers

Once we produce and agree upon the lift control system specification, it takes us just one week to build, test and dispatch a lift controller.

Our assembly method utilises components that are continuously stocked ‘on the shelf’ and results in an industry-leading order to dispatch turnaround time. This process makes our lift controllers the perfect solution for planned and reactive modernisations.

With a range of package options available, we can provide a stock solution for a vast range of lifts, from small home lifts to triplex high-rise projects.
