Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Uplifting Pair Join Obam Stairlifts

Lincolnshire-based Obam Stairlifts, which helps people with mobility problems live more independently, has appointed two new members of staff to its customer-focused team.

Obam Stairlifts has welcomed Adrian Hallam (59) from Newark to the engineering team. Adrian, an experienced and qualified engineer, will support the business by delivering servicing and maintenance work as well as out-of-hours breakdown cover.

Having quickly settled into his new role, Adrian said he already feels like part of the team. “It’s a great company to work for. The team are friendly, loyal and trustworthy – which is a great attribute, especially as we work with lots of vulnerable people.

“Every day is different, and I enjoy meeting our customers and using my problem-solving skills to help get them regain the use of their stairlift as quickly as possible.”   

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.

“It’s great to see Obam Stairlifts taking a more strategic approach to its planning,” 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, to allow customers to browse more comfortably.

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. Meanwhile the showroom, which used to be two separate rooms, has had the connecting door removed and is now one large showroom.

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.”
