Over seventeen years of success


ElevAero was formed in 2007 by Adam Bartram

After spending over 20 years in the aerospace and defence industry within supply chain management, business development, project management and later at general manager / director level, Adam initially set up ElevAero as a consultancy business, trading for 4 years as A. A. Bartram Ltd.

It was highly effective in helping companies to grow and become more efficient and profitable. Although consultancy was proving successful, after the adoption of Adam’s first daughter, he made the decision to set the business up in a way that would benefit the family to the maximum and enable him to get the ideal work/life balance to fully support his ‘new treasure’!

In 2012, trading as ElevAero Ltd, it became clear that there was a fantastic opportunity to offer customers extremely competitive sourcing and supply of components, fabrications and assemblies using the wide range of suppliers that ElevAero has been working with for many years. These include suppliers discovered on travels around the UK, Europe, and Asia where excellent supplier and customer relationships have been established. Since then, ElevAero has grown into a well-established supplier of high-quality components and assemblies delivering significant savings to its customers. Adam also adopted his daughter’s little sister to make his family complete, giving him even more motivation to make the business succeed!

In 2018, ElevAero moved into new premises and purchased a range of CNC machines and other production equipment to enhance its offering. The machines allowed the company to manufacture as well as source, thus giving 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, ElevAero continued to grow.

In March 2019 ElevAero increased its machining capacity with an acquisition of the assets of Davies Engineering Ltd, a Birmingham based supplier to ElevAero of tooling and larger machined components.  ElevAero Precision Manufacturing Ltd (EPM) was then formed with ElevAero holding a 75% share and Toby Forrester, Director, a 25% share.

In October 2020, ElevAero Ltd acquired Formrite Precision Limited after 2 years of pursuing. This strategic acquisition broadened the groups capabilities further by adding increased machining, fabrication, painting and shot blast facilities strengthening their position in Aerospace and Power Generation Engine Transportation Systems and Ground Support Equipment.

Additionally, in June 2023, ElevAero Ltd acquired additional assets from a Composite Tooling business. This broadened its capabilities into the fast-growing market of composite tooling and composite component manufacture. ElevAero also took the opportunity to secure the lease on the 15,000 square feet facility in Tipton.

January 2024 saw the 3 businesses consolidate to trade as one business, ElevAero Ltd, giving better clarity to their customers and suppliers with one structure, one IT system and one brand, the brand that Adam created back in 2011.

Exciting times lie ahead for ElevAero Ltd as they have grown into a widely respected £7m company, intent on growing further with continued investment in equipment, people, and systems. With the drive and dedication to serve their customers and support their suppliers and staff better than any other business does.

Excellent communications remain essential to their success and is something that Adam and the team firmly believe in and will continue to install throughout the business.
