A firm which manufactures hydraulic working platforms opened its headquarters in Shenley Wood recently.

Niftylift invited suppliers, customers, staff and their families and friends to its two-day-long opening celebration.

The new HQ covers more than 28,000sqm and has space earmarked for a visitor/training centre and R&D Centre.

On June 5, customers and suppliers had a go on Niftylift’s products while an indoor exhibition taught visitors about the firm.

The family day on June 6 was attended by Niftylift staff, families and friends, the business community, MK Council and neighbouring schools and residential areas. The day started with speeches from Roger Bowden, Niftylift’s chairman, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire and Francesca Skelton, the High Sheriff of Bucks. Visitors went up in some of Niftylift’s products, took tours of the new factory, and enjoyed an afternoon of food and entertainment.
