Pride Mobility Products has sold its vehicle lifts and ramps division to Harmar Mobility LLC.
In a December news announcement, Pride said the move “allows Pride Mobility to further focus its efforts on developing consumer-driven mobility products in its scooter, power chair and lift chair product lines.”
Pride’s vehicle lifts included the Outlander and Backpacker lines. The manufacturer also offered rubber threshold ramps.
Pride Mobility Chairman/CEO Scott Meuser said of the deal, “We are pleased that Harmar has acquired our lifts and ramps division. Our business is about our consumers, and this change allows us to give consumers more of what they desire in our mobility products. We know that Harmar will continue to offer the same quality and support for our lifts and ramps, providing a seamless transition for our customers.”
Harmar, headquartered in Sarasota, Fla., sells stairlifts, wheelchair and scooter lifts, and platform lifts.
“The acquisition of the Pride Vehicle Lifts and Ramps division is consistent with our strategy to build on our leadership position in vehicle lifts,” said Harmar CEO Steve Dawson in a news announcement. “The Pride team has built an impressive product line, and we are excited to continue to develop and grow these products alongside the Harmar brand.”
