Simon Safety and Lifting Centre

Origins

The business was established and formed in April 2000 after the amalgamation of Simon Lifting Services with the Safety Centre, enabling the new company to offer a one-stop-shop to industry. The main challenges faced by the company when first started was its location and obtaining suitably trained staff with large resources spent on internal training, due to complexity of the products and services it provides.

Success Factor

With the assistance of a dedicated and loyal workforce, the company was able to provide a professional and reliable service to private and public sector customers, (both locally and internationally) and be recognised as providing the best service and the highest quality of product throughout Wales and the UK. The team also ensured that all activities were of the highest standards and that the quality management system was maintained to the ISO9002 standard. Another major success factor was understanding customer expectations and providing information and a knowledge-base so that safer working practices can be implemented.

The Future

Simon Safety and Lifting Centre has recently moved into a 6000 sq/ft warehouse and showroom facility on the Honeyborough Industrial estate. This positive move has resulted in the firm having a larger showroom and stock storage facility along with a better and more visible location. With these fantastic facilities, the business has an excellent future and is planning to offer unique products into the UK.
