Sam Sproule – Director

Born in Scotland, Sam’s 44+ years in the lift industry spans across the UK, Ireland and Australia. Sam started as an apprentice lift engineer in 1975 in Glasgow, and went on to trouble-shoot more complex lift breakdowns. After several years as a Service Manager for a multi-national lift company Sam is honoured to be a joint owner of Harwel Lifts & Hoists – a proudly Australian designed and manufactured lift and hoist company.

Sam became an Australian Citizen on Australia Day 2012 and his hobbies include, apart from all things lifts and hoists, classic cars.
