'Top Track 250' ranking for Acorn Stairlifts

12:00am | & News

Acorn Stairlifts will feature in the annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table when it is published this weekend.

Now in its 12th year, the Top Track 250 ranks Britain's private mid-market growth companies according to their latest sales figures.

Headquartered in Steeton, West Yorkshire, Acorn Stairlifts is on the 2016 Top Track 250 at number 183, with sales of £149M. It is one of 26 Yorkshire companies to feature in the league table, which breaks down its results by region as well as giving a wider national picture.

Commenting on Acorn's ranking, Company Secretary Dave Belmont said: "We are very proud that after less than 25 years in business, Acorn has grown so fast that it is now one of the largest private mid-market companies in Britain. This is a great endorsement of our products and, more importantly, of our people.

"During the past 12 months our UK workforce has grown by 25%. We export stairlifts all around the world from our factories here in Steeton, Shipley and in Scotland. Although we have grown to become a multi-national company, providing a tailor-made personal service to each of our customers remains at the heart of what we do."

Acorn now manufactures more than 60,000 stairlifts per year in its UK factories, exporting to more than 80 countries around the world. Two-thirds of its revenue now comes from export sales, including the booming USA market where it is the clear market leader for stairlifts.  Acorn offers a fast response one-stop option, selling its own award-winning stairlifts direct to customers and providing a full installation, servicing and aftercare service.

The full Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table will be published in The Sunday Times on October 2nd, both in print and online.
