Manlift, headquartered in Dubai, UAE, is a leading supplier of access platforms and power solutions, operating one of the largest access platform fleets in a vast region stretching from the Middle East to Southeast Asia.

As a provider of IPAF training courses, Manlift works closely with customers as it endeavors to continually improve safety standards on access equipment across the Emirates, Qatar, the GCC and India.
