Co-Founder & CEO

From an engineering background, with a Masters Degree in Systems Engineering, John’s career has spanned both the building and IT/IoT industries. John is responsible for bringing these two worlds together, nurturing partnerships and new propositions that allow learnd to deliver for their customers.

learnd acquires Allied Lifts, adding even more world-class delivery capability to its unique ‘building performance as a service’ offering

We are delighted to announce that Allied Lifts is now part of learnd. Allied was chosen by learnd for their combination of prestigious customer base, best-in-class engineering capability and trusted strategic partnerships with the world’s leading lift manufacturing businesses.

With field-based engineers and a highly experienced operations team, Allied Lifts compliments learnd’s existing businesses, Aimteq and Comfort Controls, giving the group true national scale and cements learnd as the leading building outcomes provider in the UK. 

The acquisition will not affect day to day operations of Allied Lifts, with the focus of the team, as always, delivering for customers. Allied Lifts will continue to operate from their base in St Helens.

All staff currently employed by Allied Lifts will remain and continue to excel in their existing roles. Learnd will be providing additional investment over the coming months to grow operational capability and develop the great talent within the business.

In addition to existing delivery capability, Allied Lifts customers will be able to take advantage of learnd’s BMS and guaranteed offerings, should they choose to. These offerings help customers achieve buildings that perform better and are greener, with little or no upfront investment.

The addition of Allied Lifts into the learnd family is the next step towards creating a world where all buildings deliver outcomes for everyone. Lifts are a huge part of any functioning building and have been a particular pain point for many of our customers. The ability to provide a comprehensive suite of lift services allows learnd to help customers in even more areas – creating even better buildings.

John Clifford, Co-Founder & CEO – Learnd

We’re really excited to be part of the learnd family. Our field service teams already provide fantastic levels of service for our customers, but I’m really excited to see what we can achieve with learnd’s backing and with the technology from their partners and other family companies.

Andrew Jeffers, Founder – Allied Lifts

At learnd, we have a huge focus on delivering operational excellence. Our previous acquisitions have highlighted that fact; we’ve acquired business that have the same common belief that delivering great service for customers is paramount. Allied fall right into that same category and underline our continual commitment to delivering the best possible products that we can, with the best people and the best technology.
