Domestic lift manufacturer Stiltz Homelifts has made its debut appearance in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 list after a strong 2020 for the company.
It attributed its success to its growing range of contemporary domestic lifts that are disrupting the traditional stairlift industry whilst safeguarding against the accessible housing crisis.
Stiltz came in at 43rd in the list, compiled by Fast Track and ranking Britain’s mid-market private companies.
It rates them based on their growth in international sales, measured over a two-year period.
Stiltz saw an average annual international sales growth of 75%, international sales of £16.1m, with total sales equalling £27.5m.
Stiltz was also recognised for its recruitment drive during the pandemic. Global staff numbers have now reached 223, with Stiltz currently recruiting for sales executives, engineers and carpenters/builders.
2020 also saw the launch of Stiltz’ flagship 36,000sqft headquarters, based in the West Midlands.
Lachlan Faulkner, Stiltz co-founder and chief commercial officer, enthused: “We are truly honoured to be recognised by HSBC International Track 200, an accolade we hold in the highest regard. I am particularly proud of our performance during the pandemic and the hard work of the Stiltz team.
“The demand for Stiltz Homelifts continues to grow as living at home safely and independently is more important than ever, especially when you consider the lack of accessible houses now and in the future.
“As the world’s population ages, Stiltz Homelifts continue to play a significant part in averting an appropriate housing shortage. We look forward to continuing on this path of growth and success.”
