One of the North’s largest independent lift companies has continued its rapid expansion by investing in a new site in Warrington – creating jobs in the process.
Pickerings Lifts, whose head office is in Stockton-on-Tees, wants to extend its footprint in the North West and the new site, on Taylor Business Park, Risley, will complement its existing facility in Manchester.
The family-owned firm has a tradition repairing, maintaining and installing lifts, escalators, loading systems and mobility equipment since 1854. The opening of the Warrington site, the company’s 12th office, is the next phase in the company’s organic growth.
The move has created five jobs, including a role for an apprentice.
