Acro trebles revenues in FY2014


The 2014 financial year has seen Acro, the UK-based aircraft seat manufacturer, earn revenues of GBP£14.4m (US$23.04m) from export sales –  almost three-times higher than the GBP£5.5m (US$8.8m) reported for the prior year.

“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 Russia is currently our fifth-largest market, contributing just over 8% to revenue during the past financial year.”

“2015 is set to become another record year for Acro” continued Allan. “With GBP£24m (US$38m) of contracted sales already scheduled into our production system, we are seeking to double our great success of 2014”.

The increase in sales has led to the company increasing its workforce from 27 in December 2013, to 55 in October 2014.
