About Handicare UK
As a global concern Handicare Accessibility is one of the world's largest stairlift manufacturers and installers. In addition to the supply of stairlifts we also manufacture bath lifts and personal hoist solutions. Our continued global growth is testament to the vision of the Management Team, which underpinned by a dedicated hard working team, innovation and a desire to always provide the best products and services at a reasonable price. Handicare UK is part of Handicare, one of Europe's largest suppliers of mobility equipment.
Handicare products are available within the UK, in the main, from mobility dealers or via a government funded body, dependent on location. As the choice of many of the UK's government funded stairlift solutions, either directly or through mobility dealers Handicare realises the constant need to perform to the highest service levels for our direct and indirect clients. Throughout the rest of the world our products are supplied via wholly owned subsidiaries, Master Importers, or to Mobility Dealers who supply the end user directly.
Investment in the future is something Handicare is passionate about, looking across the group you can see this in action. The Research and Development Team has a dedicated facility where they are able to improve existing products whilst developing solutions that lift the expectations of how Handicare products can help change lives for the better. Examples of such breakthroughs are the unique Stairlift Slide Track that removes any need for a hinged stairlift track and eDiagnostics, a state of the art software solution that will ultimately allow for the remote monitoring of a stairlift and it's use. This use of the latest technology will provide peace of mind for users and loved ones as it will help avoid common problems such as leaving a stairlift off charge whilst allowing external bodies to monitor the unit.
Handicare continues to invest in our office and field based Service Teams; new hardware and software is allowing us to work smarter and more efficiently enabling us to offer some of, if not the fastest, lead times from order to installation in the industry. The Manufacturing Team plays a huge part in achieving these industry leading turnarounds, investment in plant and training has paid huge dividends. Investment in this function continues and as Handicare further increases it's facilities such investment is expected to continue.
Handicare sources components globally for the primary operation in the UK and our recently opened manufacturing base in the Far East. Having our own base in Shanghai allows Handicare to compete financially with competitors whilst ensuring that employees are treated ethically. The success of our Far East venture has meant sales have improved so much we have had to expanded the core manufacturing base in the UK three times and we are currently looking to expand again!
