Caltech Lifts Acquires Scotlifts

We are delighted to announce that we have now successfully completed our acquisition of Scotlifts Scotland Ltd. Scotlifts owner, Scott Murray, will join our management team as Caltech's new Installations Manager and his engineer David and company assets will transfer over too. Scotlifts has 50 contract clients across Dundee, Perthshire and the Highlands which will bolt on to our ever growing lift service portfolio.

Speaking about the deal, Andrew Renwick said: “We’re delighted to have successfully acquired Scotlifts Scotland Ltd and have Scott join us because he’s built it over 15 years into a highly-regarded company with a loyal service contract base in our key operational area.

“Scott is one of the most talented lift engineers in Scotland and has built an enviable reputation across the UK for the quality of his work. As a result it’s very hard to secure him as a sub-contractor because he has a huge waiting list of multinational lift companies wanting to use him to install their lifts across the UK.

“To have Scott on our installation and repairs team full-time will significantly strengthen our engineering capability as he will be heavily involved in both a hands-on role as well as supervising other engineers and training apprentices.

“Scott’s employee David is also an excellent engineer thanks to having Scott as his mentor for five years and has recently gained his NVQ Level 3 in Lift Installations.

“Having Scott on our management team will also assist us with our growth aspirations.”

Scott Murray said: “I’m very pleased to join Caltech Lifts as its reputation for excellent work and service is well known in the UK industry and this is an exciting time to be joining it. I’m looking forward to helping Caltech continue its growth path.”
