Statius has been intimately involved with the lift sector since 1994.  One of the first projects was to obtain ISO 9001 for Jackson Lift Services Ltd.  Soon after Statius were introduced to Ish Buckingham the founder and editor of Elevation for which Statius has been a regular contributor since its first publication in the mid 90’s.


Statius were also instrumental in assisting many of the smaller independent companies over the hurdles involved in CE Marking and the Lift Regulations in the late 90’

Since then Statius have been involved with numerous projects throughout the lift sector.


  • Apex Lifts were, with the help of Statius, the first lift company in the country, possibly the world, to gain the tripple certification of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001
  • Jackson Lift Group.  Statius worked with Jackson’s and the certification body, Bureau Veritas (BV) , to navigate the requirements of the Lift Regulations and in doing so, obtaining BV the right to award the CE Mark for Lift Regulations work.  Jackson’s then became the first UK company BV approved for CE Marking.
  • Crown Lifts Ltd, assignments were undertaken for ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001. 
  • Swallow Lifts Ltd, one of the smaller lift companies, were actually the first in the UK to obtain OHSAS 18001 shortly fter its initial publication

Case Studies


Our Clients Love Us


The Easy Choice

“From the initial interview stage, through to a final selection process, it became an easy choice with Statius management being appointed as consultants for SERAPID ISO certification. Clint was integral to us achieving certification and made the whole process relaxed with a very professional approach!”

Simply ISO9001

“Statius took time to understand us, then they made ISO9001 very simple whereas other consultants had made it impossibly complicated”

Mindset management

“This (assignment) has confirmed some things I knew, and that was useful; some things I didn’t and that too was useful. However, most importantly, I guess we all felt a bit uncomfortable at times but now we have a real and robust improvement plan to go forward with.”

Mindset management

“The (performance improvement) work you have undertaken has providing a real opportunity for us to break out of our mindset… I’m just afraid it will stop!”

Streamline and simplify

“I have to say from a personal viewpoint, since you came on board you have helped streamline and simplify our systems brilliantly, and continue to do so, which makes my job much more straight forward, and I thank you very much for all your efforts...”

Securing new business

“Without the help of Statius and the systems and processes developed we would not have secured £27m of framework agreements and term contracts.”

Changing thinking

“Statius challenged and changed our thinking, without them we would never have changed the business model and we’d be far less prepared for sale.”

Integrated management

“Statius’s hands on approach and genuine interest in the development of the Integrated Management System meant that we successfully achieved ISO 14001 certification (at the first attempt) and we shall rely on their future support as we develop our systems.”
