Owner / MD’s introduction:
ElevAero was formed in 2007 by myself, Adam Bartram. I had spent over 20 years in the aerospace and defence industry involved in roles including supply chain management, business development, project management and later at General Manager / Director level.
Initially set up as a consultancy business we effectively helped companies to grow and become more efficient and profitable. This was proving successful but after the adoption of our first daughter I made the decision to set the business up in a way that would benefit the family to the maximum and enable me to get the ideal work/life balance to fully support our ‘new treasure’!
In 2012 it became clear that there was a fantastic opportunity to give customers the benefit of my experiences by offering the most competitive sourcing and supply of components, fabrications and assemblies using the wide range of suppliers that we have worked with over the years. Suppliers who we have discovered on our travels around the UK, Europe and Asia and have developed excellent relationships with.
Since then, ElevAero has grown to become a proven, ‘well established’ supplier of high-quality components and assemblies delivering significant savings to our customers.
We also adopted our daughter’s little sister to make our family complete giving me even more motivation to make the business succeed!
In 2018, we moved into new premises and purchased a range of CNC machines and other production equipment to enhance our offering and to allow us to manufacture as well as source, thus giving us better control and a higher level of ‘in-house’ inspection capability.
With AS9100/AS9120 approval now in place, and with more companies realising the potential to save money without compromising service and quality levels, the future for ElevAero looks very bright.
We pride ourselves on customer service, and the best levels of communication. Our values are based on open and honest relationships and our staff genuinely care about the customer and how they perceive us.
We would welcome the chance to prove ourselves to any new customers with the right opportunity that would not jeopardise our current, valued customers.
Oh, and finally, we all have fun whilst we do business. In a world of change and ever increasing pressures of work, we must enjoy working and not take life too seriously. After all, we're only here once!
Adam Bartram – Managing Director
ElevAero Ltd has now completed the full acquisition of Formrite Precision Ltd, Westgate, Aldridge, West Midlands.
Formrite’s customer approvals and reputation as a high quality, precision manufacturer and supplier of large, complex machined components, assemblies, tooling and test rigs makes this acquisition a perfect addition to our business, complementing our current machining, assembly and low-cost sourcing offering and taking our combined turnover to over £3m per annum.
ElevAero and Formrite customers will now be able to reap the benefits as we offer the combined capacity of both companies plus our tooling business, ElevAero Precision Manufacturing Ltd in Birmingham.
This, together with the wide range of capacity and capability available in our ever increasing and competitive supply chain creates a unique offering to our existing and potential new customers.
We look forward to challenging but exciting times ahead!
