Aviramp wins the Queens Award for International Trade

Aviramp, a Telford-based manufacturer is continuing to ‘ramp up’ success with a range of aircraft passenger boarding ramps and exports worldwide to the USA, South America, Australasia, the Far East, Africa, Europe and Scandinavia. The last 3 years growth in sales exporting has finally seen great recognition winning the Queens Award for 2021, amongst strong competition and adding great value in the aviation supply chain.

CEO Graham Corfield said, ‘’we are so delighted on winning this prestigious award, it feels like a huge victory for the whole team, each plays a vital role in the business and are all passionate ambassadors of the brand.’’

This Aviramp innovative design is considered a disruptor in the aviation industry and a go-to solution in the ground handling sector with increased demand globally from airports and airlines as the boarding ramps improve passengers turnaround efficiencies, improving safety, reduce costs and delivering an all-inclusive passenger experience. 

The Aviramp designs embrace aspects of equality with unrestricted and easy boarding access from passengers with reduced mobility through to families with young children and babies, with exceptional safety with unique all weather non-slip ramp floors and gentle sloping gradients. It seems that Graham and the team have really tailored bespoke solutions to also reflect the environmental issues with supplying fully solar powered units to service all aircraft types and removing the need for high lift trucks at airports support carbon footprint initiatives with added CO2 savings.

David Wright Cabinet Member for Economy, Housing, Transport and Infrastructure said “since supporting Aviramp back in 2019 with a Business Growth Programme Grant  for £70,000 we have seen their business go from strength to strength with the need to employ 7 new members of staff to enable their successful growth rate.  

“Their announcement of being awarded a Queens Award for International Trade is a wonderful achievement and a fantastic accolade for the Telford firm. We’d like to congratulate Graham, and the team on Stafford Park for their hard work and dedication which has proved a game changer on an international stage. I’d personally like to wish them all the best as their journey continues with further innovation and investment on the horizon taking them into  haulage and maritime sectors.”
