Liftech becomes latest IPAF member at Vertikal Days

Liftech has joined as a dealer/distributor member of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) at Vertikal Days 2022 – making it the first company to sign up during this year’s event at the East of England Showground near Peterborough, following a number of membership enquiries and sign-ups at last year’s Vertikal Days.   

Peter Douglas, CEO & Managing Director of IPAF, comments: “We are delighted to welcome another new member aboard and in particular we are pleased to be able to confirm this during another successful Vertikal Days, now back in its usual May slot.  

“As we saw in September last year, these events are an ideal platform to interact with existing members and encourage new ones to join. Last year we launched our new Safety Professional member category, which proved very popular, helping us to exceed record membership levels at the end of 2021, with 1,504 members worldwide.  

“As Liftech signing up attests, companies can see the potential in joining the IPAF family, whether that is setting themselves apart from the competition through becoming an audited, accredited IPAF Training Centre or IPAF Rental+ member or joining in a specific membership category that will assist them in meeting set business objectives.  

“Having added new IPAF Group and Sustaining Members in the past few months, I am very happy to welcome Liftech as our latest IPAF member, and we look forward to outlining all the benefits IPAF membership brings to them and indeed anyone who cares to join us on stand 619 during the event.” 

Victoria Westwood, Managing Director of Liftech, comments: “We are all excited to become an IPAF member and the Liftech team really appreciates the work that IPAF does to champion our industry and make it safer. I really appreciate the support IPAF has shown, including using one of our machines on the IPAF stand. We’re looking forward a great relationship between Liftech and IPAF – we’re proud to sign up!”  

● IPAF will be on stand 619 at Vertikal Days at the East of England Showground, Peterborough, 11-12 May, where the team will be happy to talk to visitors about the extensive and growing package of membership benefits, or visit to find contact details of IPAF your nearest IPAF office or representative.
