One of the  market leading tail lift installation company which offers cargo lift solutions to businesses across the UK has chosen Faiveley Vapor Ricon (FVR) for over two decades to support a range of access and manual handling requirements.

Alfa Tail Lifts, which operates nationally from four sites across the UK, supports all aspects of the commercial lift installation and service process for appropriate vehicles, and for a wide variety of industries.


Alfa Tail Lifts has a wide range of experience in commercial lift specifications, installations and maintenance and they ensure that the correct product is chosen for each vehicle. Working across fleet, blue- light, dealer and end user specifications, the team has seen an increase in demand for such solutions to support enhanced manual handling legislation in recent years. As a result, employers not only meet requirements, but tend to exceed them to prevent mobility issues from repetitive strain incurred by incorrect manual handling.

Compact and simple to operate, a cargo lift installation solves the challenges presented by the Manual Handling Guidelines and provides convenient and safe loading and unloading opportunities. It assists employers in meeting the risk assessment and method statement requirements set out in the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (MHSWR) 1999.

Specifying cargo lifts assists staff in their daily tasks and helps to maintain a healthy workforce; whilst adhering to legislative requirements.


The Ricon Cargo Lift is the ideal solution for such challenges posed by non-passenger lifting requirements and offers a non-intrusive space saving footprint. It is suitable for most light commercial vehicles.

The lifts can be fitted for either rear or side access dependent upon the individual requirements and the nature of the cargo in question.

This allows customers who choose this lift to enjoy easy access and operating and, with a manual back up system, complete confidence in continuous operation is offered no matter what the circumstances. Furthermore, it can easily be moved by qualified professionals, such as Alfa Tail Lifts, when a new vehicle is acquired should the need arise.

Both specifications can accommodate up to a 500kg lifting weight capacity.

What the customer said:

“FVR products are of a consistently high standard and the availability of both the lifts and the parts means that we can respond to our customer needs in a very timely manner,” said Phil Gibbs, Managing Director, Alfa Tail Lifts. “Over the decades we have fitted almost 500 lifts and commend the FVR team for their customer service, product quality and willingness to support their customers wherever possible.”
