IMEM Lifts is one of Europe’s leading lift manufacturers with a well-established reputation for quality and reliability. We occupy a particularly competitive position in the lift market as we are one of the few fully independent lift companies on the entire continent able to offer an almost limitless range of lifts and components. This includes lifts with or without a machine room in an enormous range of sizes and configurations, hydraulic lifts, goods lifts, home lifts, lifts made to measure to satisfy a client’s special requirements – and more.

IMEM Lifts has almost 50 years’ professional experience as a lift designer and manufacturer, including over 20 years of service with the UK lift industry. Our clients and collaborators include lift companies both large and small, architects and consultants, with the straightforward aim of providing British lift professionals with vertical transport solutions of high added-value: lifts which are easy to install and maintain, reliable and long-lasting with competitive pricing and specification.



IMEM’s integrated design and manufacturing process creates the widest range of lift systems imaginable. Our passenger, goods passenger and goods lifts are specially designed to suit every particular project, whether new-build or conversion:

  • We offer a comprehensive range of standardised lifts-top quality pre-designed solutions, fully compliant with current European and international standards and regulations, and capable of resolving all vertical transport requirements in whatever context, from private residences to offices, hospitals, shopping centres, warehouses, industrial plants and so on.
  • In addition, IMEM enjoys an excellent and growing reputation for the design and manufacture of lifts custom-built to suit special conditions. Here, we help our customers to accurately define the particular lift system which they require and we then manufacture it to their exact specifications.

IMEM can manufacture any type of lift system imaginable-the possibilities are limitless. Our engineering experience and skills combine with the exceptional flexibility of our lift manufacturing process to enable us to deliver cost-effective and competitive solutions for vertical transport projects of all kinds.
