GBH Design, Special Design & Build Lifts

When we were asked by Lerch Bates back in January 2012 if we knew of a manufacturer who can provide a rotating circular glass lift for a very special customer we did not hesitate before answering “yes we do.”, in our opinion, GBH Design are the manufacturer and installer of the finest design and build lifts in the industry and we are very proud to be their representative in the UK.
