TotalKare, which celebrated its 35th anniversary last year, has secured a number of new contracts with multi-national operators and independent workshops that will see it pass £8m sales for the first time.

The £400,000 annual boost comes at a perfect time, with the Halesowen-based firm set to showcase its Two Post Lift.

Suitable for vehicles with long wheel bases such as Mercedes-Benz Spring, Volkswagen Crafter and the new Iveco Daily Van, the hydraulic lift has a 5,500kg lifting capacity and can be operated from either side.

James Radford, sales and marketing director at TotalKare, said: “We’ve had a really strong start to 2018, with our ability to offer a host of high-quality, heavy duty workshops solutions, along with mobile options, proving very popular.

“This has seen us extend contracts with local authorities and pick up new orders with truck, trailer and logistics companies, not to mention more of our existing customers taking advantage of our servicing and maintenance packages.”

He continued: “Passing £8m will be a big milestone for us and one that has seen us increase the workforce by 10% to 46 staff. There’s also plans in place to take on another three engineers between now and the end of the year.

Radford concluded: “As the UK’s number one supplier of mobile column lifts, we believe our ever-expanding product range, service packages and finance options offer the best total solution available in the marketplace.

“It’s not just about selling the most products though. We want to educate workers and employers in the sector to make it a safe and a great place to work. That’s the TotalKare difference.”
