Local company Motorstep are delighted to be moving to bigger unit at Westcott Business Park, as they continue to grow their business.

Having started the firm at Westcott four years ago, the family-run business manufacture motorised portable lifts for disabled people, or anybody with a condition where they can’t climb up or down a step.

In search of more space, they moved from their first unit in April this year, and work is now almost completed on their newly refurbished unit, which is over three times the size of their previous premises at the Park.

Motorstep has invested heavily in their new home, working to create an office, a kitchen, designing all the facilities, even the toilets, with their customers in mind. Mainly aimed at the caravan and motorhome market, their unique product is sold worldwide.

Paul Bennett, managing director explains: "We've always been very happy here at Westcott. It's an ideal location and nice to be amongst other engineering companies too. It's a pleasant countryside environment, but still professional and secure. Our business is steadily growing so this move now equips us with an office three times the size of our old one, and with ample parking for caravans and motorhomes."

Over the past four years Motorstep has sold over 250 steps and are getting busier each year. As the product is getting more exposure people are finding other uses for it, like getting in and out of their houses, or for split level rooms within a house. UK and European patented, the step is a self-supporting lifting platform that can be placed next to hard-to-reach steps, lifting from ground level and gently rising.

Over the next few years, Motorstep aim to drive awareness by increasing advertising and their presence at the big caravan and motorhome shows.

Paul continues: "We are very much a family run business, my son-in-law has recently joined us, my son and my wife are part of the team - my wife even sews the waterproof covers from her machine at home! All the family have lent a hand in one way or another, especially with moving from smaller to bigger premises. We are delighted with our new home."
