Aviramp Limited, a Telford based, family-owned manufacturer of access and loading ramps, has won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise as a result of its exceptional revenue growth in International Trade over the past three years.
Aviramp-branded portable passenger boarding ramps are transforming the civil aviation ground handling industry.
The company’s products are fast becoming an industry standard, due to its delivery of greater passenger safety, boarding experience, equality and inclusion, as well as offering zero carbon emissions through its environmentally sustainable 100% solar powered models.
Additionally, the company’s sister brand ‘Alloy Ramps’ is a leading design and manufacturer of access and loading ramps to a raft of UK and overseas sectors, including warehousing, logistics, construction, leisure, retail, hospitality, rail and maritime.
As will resonate with many entrepreneurs, Graham Corfield, CEO, took huge risks in order to deliver his Aviramp concept to market. His initial idea was sketched on to the back of a beermat during a skiing holiday in France, after witnessing
the airport chaos caused by multiple ski accidents, which restricted the boarding of these passengers onto aeroplanes by stairs. If only a ramp were available to help board these passengers, which would ease congestion, reduce boarding bottlenecks and maintain a constant passenger boarding flow? It was from here that Aviramp’s patented passenger boarding ramp design was conceived.
The Aviramp product range remains focused on providing improved passenger safety, dignified boarding for all passengers, and environmental sustainability.
Aviramp’s environmental sustainability mandate has led to important developments in its manufacturing processes. The introduction of its solar-powered portable aircraft boarding ramp range eliminates the need for airports to use diesel powered high lift trucks, known as ambulifts, for boarding disabled passengers.
By investing in the Aviramp solar powered ramp range, airports and operators are demonstrating their efforts towards becoming a more sustainable and greener industry.
Graham says: “We are delighted on winning this prestigious award. It feels like a huge victory for the whole team, each delivering vital roles in the business; all of whom are passionate ambassadors of the brand, as are our clients.”
