Acorn Stairlifts has been named a British manufacturing champion after scooping three prestigious national business awards at an event last week.
Acorn saw its success recognised at the EEF/Aldermore Future Manufacturing Awards held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London on 27 January.
We took gold in the Outstanding Export Award in recognition of our achievements exporting into more than 80 different countries and becoming market leader for stairlifts in the USA. Acorn were also named runner-up in the Business Growth Award following its turnover in North America trebling in the past four years.
Acorn’s biggest award success on the night came when it was crowned Winner of Winners – a title awarded to the most outstanding and inspiring company out of all the national winners and further testament to its export and business growth success.
Selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics, Acorn was up against tough competition from a range of dynamic businesses from across the UK. The national recognition comes in a year which has seen Acorn Stairlifts scoop a total of nine industry accolades including the Trustmark accreditation for customer care and installation and the prestigious "Made in the UK" award.
Nicol Fraser, partner at Dunedin, which sponsored the Outstanding Export Award, said: “Acorn Stairlifts is a fantastic example of the impact a successful export strategy can have on a business. Their growth journey is inspirational and their ambitions have been achieved through a combination of hard work, dedication to the business and a focus on the end goal.”
