Growth and expansion

Although Stiltz is a relatively young business, they have experienced rapid growth over several years. This is due to strong investment, innovative products, a strong team, key relationships with domestic and overseas distributors and good PR within their industry and the wider business community.

Population ageing has also been a contributing factor to the young business’ growth. In 2015, there were around 901 million people aged 60 years and over worldwide, representing 12.3% of the global population. By 2030, this will have increased to 1.4 billion or 16.4% and by 2050, it will have increased to 2.1 billion or 21.3% of the global population (Office For national Statistics). With the global phenomenon of population ageing, the UK is seeing a push away from residential care more towards domiciliary care and it is expected that this marketplace will continue to grow.

The Stiltz lift is a direct competitor to stair-lifts and is designed for use by householders who, through a lack of mobility, find it difficult to use stairs.

The funding package will allow the business to deliver its growth plan; upgrading its internal system, increasing stock and creating 16 new jobs in the region.
