A significant expansion programme is currently
underway at Evac+Chair International.
7,500 extra sq ft have been acquired, doubling the size of the Birmingham site and relieving pressure on manufacturing capacity to enable it to cope with continuing demand.
Evac+Chair International Ltd is enjoying excellent sales growth, with results for 2005 showing 64% increase since 2002, largely through the popularity of its award-winning Evac+Chair stairway emergency evacuation chair for the mobility impaired. Export sales have increased by 15% over the same period.Last year saw a 10% increase in the number of staff to support this consistent strong growth.
Recently, Evac+Chair International was commended for its achievements at the prestigious Birmingham Business of the Year Awards.
Barry Scholes, Managing Director of Evac+Chair International Ltd said,
“We are delighted with these results which reflect the complete commitment of our employees throughout our business.”
The company has sound management systems in place and as well as Investors in People, subscribes to continuous improvement planning, benchmarking, best practice modelling, work life balance and of course ISO 9001 quality systems.
We recognise the value of such initiatives and all employees have their own personal development plan. The company is a genuine manufacturer taking in raw materials and delivering finished product to customers as well as providing after-sales support and customer training.
