Managing director David Forsyth ( said: “Since I joined Bespoke Stairlifts in 2017, we have made a number of changes.

“These latest three appointments are indicative of the way this business is evolving.

“Bringing Jules, Tom and Raimund into the team has been a calculated move to help us take the next step up and be seen as a serious contender in the stairlift sector.”

Bespoke Stairlifts now employs more than 50 people and produces around 150 tailor-made stairlifts each month.
