When AIRCOM International was founded in 1995, mobile phones were a luxury that only a few could afford. Now pensioners and children may own more than one. Redhill-based AIRCOM, which sells software and support services to mobile-phone network providers, has seen sales grow 69% a year, from £2.4m in 1998 to £7m in 2000. Founded in 1995 by Steve Mockford, Philip Caiger and Andrew Richardson, the Surrey company has 220 staff at offices in America, Brazil, India, Sweden and South Africa. Nokia took a 40% stake in June 1999.
