Joining Adrian and the team is Simon Wright, 43, from North Hykeham who has taken up a newly established role as logistics coordinator, having recently relocated from Kent.

Simon has eight years’ experience in planning and logistics and recently spent a year organising the installation team at Swale Heating.

He said: “In my new role I’ll be looking at where we can make the best use of our engineers’ time, while still delivering our high standard of care to our customers.”

In addition to the two new members of staff, Obam Stairlifts has invested in office renovations and an extension to its showroom.

Three new offices have been built within the former storage area at the rear of the building and will accommodate the sales and finance team.

Obam Stairlifts Director Chris Butroid said: “This year we’re steadily developing a strong team to take us through the next phase of growth as a business and I’m delighted to welcome Simon and Adrian to the team.

“In addition to new staff and office improvements, we’re almost ready to launch our new website, which will allow our customers to get access to more information, advice and guidance before they get in touch with us.”
