“Over 25 years of experience, is a long time to be in one industry and during that time I have seen a lot of changes. Back in the late 1980’s early 1990’s, lifts designed to help with mobility, started to develop many new innovations. Nowadays, a more discerning client base, demand greater aesthetic considerations” – Gary Tidman – Only Lifts
