Domestic lifts manufacturer Stiltz Homelifts has made its debut in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. Ranking 43rd, the inclusion is a significant achievement for Stiltz as the 2021 league table also highlights the important contribution that private companies have made during the pandemic.
Stiltz manufactures a range of contemporary domestic lifts that safeguard against the growing accessible housing crisis.
Compiled by Fast Track, the table ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales measured over a two-year period. Stiltz saw an average annual international sales growth of 75 per cent, international sales of £16.1 million, with total sales equalling £27.5 million.
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.
Last year saw the launch of Stiltz flagship 36,000 square foot HQ premises based in the West Midlands, which accommodates a Training Centre of Excellence, customer services, state-of-the-art R&D, extensive warehousing and a customer showroom.
Lachlan Faulkner, Stiltz Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer, said: “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.”
Placement on the HSBC International Track 200 league table follows Stiltz ranking in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, achieving the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade (2020), Lloyds Bank Business Exporter of the Year (2019) and two consecutive rankings in the Financial Times FT1000 list.
