A BROMSGROVE technology company has had a big lift - after supplying equipment for the owner of the world's largest elevator testing tower.

The 32-metre high test facility now has a network of time-lapse CCTV systems, thanks to Stoke Prior-based Ecl-ips.

The contract, with Coventry-based energy absorption company Oleo International, is the latest in a line of new clients won by Ecl-ips.

Ecl-ips installed the high-tech cameras - manufactured by Avigilon - in the tower during a nine-month project, working in partnership with film maker Paul Duffy, of Diamond Ocean.

Digital systems and high-tech software installed by Ecl-ips were to record the tower's construction and vital safety data during the testing of buffers, which are designed for high speed elevators.

Aaron Kernaghan, managing director of Ecl-ips said: “I am delighted that our knowledge on CCTV systems and software was recognised by Oleo International and the project lead, film maker Paul Duffy.

"It was a challenging project but our team rose to that challenge – especially on the technical and installation side.

“It’s a tremendous coup for us to work with such a respected global company as Oleo International and we hope it will lead to us securing further contracts in the multi-million elevator sector.”

Paul Duffy, managing director of Diamond Ocean and an advisor to Oleo International, said: “Aaron and the team at Ecl-ips delivered everything we wanted and more on what was a rare, but high-profile project.

"They had exactly the right experience and commitment needed to make it happen.”

Mr Kernaghan added that Ecl-ips, which he founded in 2002, has had a "sustained period of growth" in the education and industrial sectors this year.

Other contract wins included a deal to install a new power supply and CCTV system at Anglesey Primary School in Birmingham.

The firm has more than a million lift safety units installed worldwide.
