About Us


For over fifty years the Loading Systems Group have been one of Europe's leading manufacturers of loading bay equipment with our products and services being distributed throughout Europe, the Middle and Far East by Loading Systems subsidiary offices and a network of more than 40 authorized distributors.

Here in the UK, Easilift Loading Systems Ltd have played a pivotal role in the success of the Group and, as a leading supplier to all sectors of the logistic and construction industries, we benefit from excellent and long standing relationships with many "blue chip" clients.

Loading bays are often a focal point of activity and are of the utmost importance in the logistical process, which is why concepts such as safety, efficiency, reliability and service delivery are central to our corporate ethos. State of the art design facilities, innovative manufacturing solutions, quality project management capabilities and factory trained, directly employed engineers enable us to be both responsive and creative in providing solutions that may otherwise not be available.

Founded in 1976 by Edward Kelly, the company commenced trading under the name of Easilift Material Handling and operated from offices in Golcar, Huddersfield before making the short move across town in 1980 to the present facility in Kirkburton. In 1993 the company merged with the Netherlands based Loading Systems group of companies, hence the emergence of Easilift Loading Systems Limited. Since those early days we have grown to become the market leader in many areas of our industry.

Throughout the various stages of Easilifts corporate development our strategic approach has remained constant and indeed relatively straightforward. Close collaboration with our clients allows us to develop an in depth appreciation of their business, its processes and procedures. As a result, we are able to combine our extensive experience with market focused capabilities across all sizes of companies to innovate in line with their operational requirements and exceed their expectations with the ultimate aim of delivering mutually beneficial results.

In 2002, for example, we were invited to work alongside Tesco, one of our major clients, to find a cost effective and efficient way of offloading their newly purchased fixed bed double deck trailers. Eight years later and, as a result of installing in excess of 160 purpose built scissor lifts, we are proud to celebrate our position as market leader in this particular sector.

For Tesco the results are even more impressive, the use of double deck trailers continues to drive down the cost of transportation whilst simultaneously helping them to deliver the "green commitment" they have made to the city.

Today, Easilift Loading Systems Ltd is an innovative, well managed business, with excellent credit ratings which aims to offer the highest standards of business ethics and quality of service to its customers and suppliers. Through continued investment in our people, processes and systems we will become not only the national supplier of choice but also the industry employer of choice.
