On the 12th November 2004, John and Lynda Harding set up J&L Elevator Components with the aim of providing quality LiftEquip products coupled with a high level of service and support to customers. J&L Elevator Components are now a leading supplier of quality lift equipment for use in the modernisation of existing lifts and in new lift design.
Looking back over the last 10 years, we have gathered just some of the “highlights”…

A selection of both Geared and Gearless Machines were provided for the complete refurbishment package at The Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

The hospital is now completely fitted with almost our complete range of LiftEquip Machines.
