It is the seventh depot for the company, whose headquarters are in Hickstead, Sussex.

The new depot is on the Knowsley Industrial Estate and includes an indoor training centre. Facelift is an accredited training provider for the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and the Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association (PASMA). 

Managing director Gordon Leicester said: “We’re delighted to be opening this new depot in Liverpool, and we’ve already started working with several local clients. Our expertise, continual re-investment in the quality of our equipment and reputation for delivering a first-class service means we’ve quickly become very successful in every area of the country we operate in, and we expect Liverpool to be a similar story.”

 Speaking about the launch of the indoor training school, Ewan Smith, manager of Facelift’s Kirkby depot, said: “Safety is paramount when working at height, so being able to offer a ‘one stop shop’ for both health and safety training, and equipment hire is already proving very popular with our customers. We’ve had enquiries from as far afield as Scotland, and from everyone from construction contractors to tree surgeons.”
