Stiltz’s freestanding lifts, which plug into domestic electric sockets, have been retrofitted into homes in more than 20 countries and provide an alternative to stairlifts. Originally from Australia, co-founders Cameron Gillespie and Lachlan Faulkner, both 30, moved to the UK to set up an HQ in 2010. Cameron’s father Peter, 63, and brother James, 32, moved to Shanghai to establish a factory there. Strong sales in the US, Germany and France helped exports to £3.2m last year.
