David Sharp, MD at Orton added: “I have always been supportive of LEIA and I am old enough to remember NALM [National Association of Lift Manufacturers] where I completed several distance learning units. The training is great for the industry and we have an apprentice on the LEIA / LITS scheme. I would like to get back onto the board of LEIA at some point so I can share my experience on escalators. My team are already logging onto the LEIA website as it has a vast amount of helpful information. I am looking forward to working together again.”
