Formed in 1992, Acorn Stairlifts is an international, privately owned company, whose headquarters and manufacturing facility are located in the heart of Yorkshire, in Northern England.
Acorn started by buying, reconditioning and reselling pre-owned stair lifts, as well as buying in new lifts from other UK manufacturers. Within a very short space of time, it became obvious that it was necessary to design and manufacture an all-new stairlift, one that had all of the outdated stair lift features removed. From this decision, the Acorn Superglide Stairlift was born, soon to become a market leader. To this day, it remains at the forefront of stairlift technology.
Acorn Stairlifts pioneered DC technology in the stairlift industry. This was chosen due to the inherent advantages of safety, smooth power delivery and the ability to operate normally during a mains power failure. Interestingly, all of Acorn's stairlift competitors have followed this lead and now offer a DC product!
Acorn is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of stairlifts worldwide, with offices in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Germany. Acorn currently manufactures in excess of 50,000 new units per annum and has thousands of satisfied customers worldwide.
The core business of Acorn has always remained the same; the manufacture and supply of Acorn Stairlifts. The 'keep it simple' ethos has allowed Acorn to focus on one thing - and to do it right.
Relax, and give your life a lift with an Acorn Stairlift.
