EDM named as ‘One to Watch’ in European Business Awards

31 January 2018


Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, has been named as ‘One to Watch’ in a shortlist of leading companies published by the European Business Awards.

EDM was selected due to its exceptional performance over the past 12 months whilst also strongly reflecting the Awards’ core values of innovation, success and ethics. 2017 saw EDM’s turnover increase by 65% to over £24m and profit levels soar four-fold. With 95% of the company’s turnover coming from exports, growth was fueled by major contract wins with companies including American Airlines, Delta, China Southern Airlines, All Nippon Airways, BAE Systems, Boeing Defense, Babcock and Lockheed Martin. With staff numbers doubling to over 250, EDM invested £2.5m in additional premises and machinery to cope with its rapidly increasing order book.
