Taylor’s Hoists is celebrating 15 years as one of the leading vertical access providers in the construction sector.
The Cambridgeshire-based firm is now part of BrandSafway and led by Paul Price, managing director, who said: ”I am so proud of what we do, what we de-liver, who we are and where we came from. The whole team deserves enormous recognition for what we have achieved together over the past 15 years.”
When the Taylor’s Hoists business began in 2005, originally based at a small yard in Watford, Paul Price was its only hoist erector. Fifteen years on, Mr Price leads a 33-strong team from their spacious yard, storage, maintenance and office facilities behind Duxford Air Museum close to the M11/A505 corridor. The firm also operates from a second site at the new Lyndon SGB single scaffolding depot in Manchester.
Recalling the early years, Mr Price said: “Back in 2005, I was the first and only hoist erector. But I was soon joined by a few other guys, making up the small team of Taylor’s Hoists field engineers, plus three managers in the office. It grew quickly, as we established a reputation for expertise and an excellent track record of customer service, combined with our decision to specify only the best hoists on the market.
“Back then, our facilities were very basic and we only had the one hoist when I first arrived; a goods hoist that from memory served just two landings! Each member of the team – from the board of directors, to depot operatives, company managers and field engineers – are proud of what they deliver.”
