The grandfather of our business, father to Tony and grandad to Daniel, Stan Sheridan is the reason we are here today. One of the original lift technicians of his age and a true trailblazer for the industry, Stan and his colleague Peter were the co-founders of our predecessor company P&S Lifts which were later to become Sheridan Lifts. Stan's wisdom, innovacy and vision are what we see in practice here today at Sheridan Lifts. Stan passed away in 1994 and will be forever remembered as our daily inspiration to go one step better.
Son of Stan, Tony Sheridan has been in the industry for over 40 years, working his way up from apprentice level where he was tutored by his father immediately after leaving school. Tony formed Sheridan Lifts in 2004 to utilise the family name and has been managing director here ever since, driving the business forward with his vision and ambitious plans for expansion. Our outstanding reputation is born from the high standards expected by Tony. A fully trained lift technician, Tony retains a hands-on approach and is always available to help and support the team.
A successful entrepreneur and son of Tony, Daniel has been at the company since leaving high school, beginning as an apprentice and progressing to a fully qualified lift engineer. Daniel came into the office after 7 years on the tools and now oversees the overall day to day operations for Sheridan Lifts, directing the customer service department, accounts, new lift/maintenance sales teams and our service and marketing department. Daniel’s responsibility is to drive and lead the growth of the company and maintain our reputation as the number one lift company in the UK.
