Acorn Stairlifts has been named for the first time as one of the top 150 companies in Yorkshire by accountants BDO in the 2012 edition of their Yorkshire Report.
Now in its sixth year, BDO's Yorkshire Report 2012 compiles the latest published accounts from Yorkshire's largest top 150 businesses based on revenue.
This follows praise for Acorn's export growth from David Wootton, the Lord Mayor of London, during his visit to Acorn's headquarters earlier this year. He said,
"Acorn's export growth has been excellent. Manufacturing is one of the key industries to help bring the UK out of the recession and to hear and see how Acorn is exporting stairlifts to 66 different countries each year from its UK operation is to be applauded. I was especially impressed by the unique way that they can install stairlifts on non-standard staircases within 24 hours of receiving a customer's order."
