Who we are and how it began
TECHWIND was established in 1987 as a family company and it has operated in the lift industry from the very beginning of its existence. The name originates from Polish, where “Tech” comes from technology and “Wind” is simply a short term for lift (pl: winda). The history of the company is strongly associated with the formation of capitalism in Poland – it was at the Gdańsk Shipyard that “Solidarity” emerged and a withdrawn from the managed economy begun. Gdańsk Shipyard was one of Techwind’s first customers.
Initially, it was only the assembly of lifts produced in Poland. Over time, we expanded the range of services and devices offered in order to keep up with market demands. At present, the company’s activity includes the design, production, delivery, assembly and service of all types of lifting equipment throughout Europe.
As a company managed by the owners, we are able to combine quick decisions, responsibility and many years of experienceto not only meet the Customers’ expectations, but even exceed them.
We treat each project individually, because there are no two identical liftsfor us – this is the key to our success. We are not just responding to inquiries – we are here to advise you on the best solutions – both in terms of technology and cost-effectiveness.
We provide lifts for various purposes: starting from small service lifts, passenger lifts to large goods and cargo lifts, car lifts and lifts for special purposes.
In addition, we specialize in the installation of escalators, moving walkways and platforms for people with disabilities.
Scope of activity
The company specializes in the production of marine lifts. For this purpose we have created the MarineLifts brand to reflect the nature of the product. The conditions at sea place high demands on the equipment itself, as well as on the quality of work performed by the staff.That’s why we cooperate with the shipyards around the worldin the field of design, production, delivery and assembly of lifts. Our products can be found on ships flying various flags.
We are constantly improving our products, using the extensive experience from hundreds of completed projects and from our qualified staff. The balance between the size of our company and the speed of decisions making is very important to us. It is not without significance that the lack of highly developed structures results in high cost effectiveness, which can be translated into the attractiveness of our offer. Today, we do not need to run offices around the world – we are able to reach any place in the world very quickly – both to meet a contractor or to repair a lift.
We always rely on our own technicians, because we want to provide a proper service level – a satisfied Customer is our highest priority.
It does not matter if it is a large cruise liner, nuclear-powered icebreaker or a luxury yacht – our lift has the same task regardless of its purpose – to operate without problems.
“We have one specified goal and one mission.”
