Totalkare investment drive marks anniversary 20 January 2020

Lifting and testing solutions provider Totalkare is embarking on a £750,000 investment drive that will aim to help it boost sales by 25%.

The firm, which employs over 50 people at its facility in Halesowen, is looking to build on 2019 by implementing a new ERP system and by kickstarting a project that will see it relocate to a new purpose-built site in the Midlands.

It comes as the business celebrates 40 years of supplying heavy duty vehicle lifts in the UK to clients involved in the bus and coach, commercial motor and heavy haulage sectors.

“We felt it was the right time to lay the foundations for our next four decades,” explains David Hall, who led a Management Buy-out of the company in May 2018. “The business will always be based on the founding principles of customer care and being experts in our field and we want to put a marker in the sand for the next stage of our development.”

He continues: “We have already started the process of implementing a new ERP system that will give us lots of internal and external efficiency improvements and this will pave the way for our relocation to a new purpose-built site.

“In total, this is a significant spend for us and we are in the final stages of negotiations on a great location that is close to our current home in Halesowen. It’s a necessary move to give us the ability to optimise the workflow on the shopfloor and increase our capacity to hold stock of mobile column lifts, brake testers, headlamp testers and other future products.”
