Acorn has won the Export award in the Made in Yorkshire awards which highlight the achievements of Yorkshire manufacturers. Acorn was also highly commended in the Innovation and Large Company categories.
This is the second Export award Acorn has won in the last couple of months, having won Export Award in the Insider magazine’s Growth 100 Awards which celebrated the achievements of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Yorkshire.
The judges were most impressed with the way that Acorn can install a stairlift on a non-standard staircase within a day, whereas our competitors can take weeks to do the same.
In the last four years, exports from Acorn’s UK factories have more than doubled, and 56% of our revenue now comes from outside the UK.
As winner of the Made in Yorkshire award, Acorn will automatically be entered into the Made in the UK Awards next year.
