“During our last financial year almost 35% of sales were made to continental Europe (Germany and Netherlands) followed by just over 17% to the USA” stated Cameron Allan Acro’s Commercial Director. “The UK market remained strong thanks to continuing deliveries to Thomas Cook and Acro launch customer Jet2.com. Russia is currently our 5th largest market contributing just over 8% to revenue during the past financial year.”
2014 export sales revenues were almost three times higher than the GBP£ 5.5m reported for the prior year.
“2015 is set to become another record year for Acro” says Cameron Allan. “With GBP£24m of contracted sales already scheduled into our production system we are seeking to double our great success of 2014”.
Economy cabin specialist Acro offers airline customers an expanded product range featuring reclining or fixed-back pre-reclined seats and award-winning design innovation to enable an airline to reduce operating cost and improve passenger on-board experience.
The huge increase in sales means that the company has had to increase its workforce from 27 in December 2013 to 55 in October 2014.
More than 50,000 Acro seats are now flying with Low Cost Carriers and full service airlines around the world.
Acro designs, certifies and manufactures award-winning economy cabin passenger seats for some of the world’s leading Low Cost and Full Service from around the world.
Currently there are 50,000+ seats in flying service with airlines including KLM Cityhopper, Thomas Cook, Condor, and Mango.
