National Seating & Mobility (NSM) has acquired SelfCare Home Health Products Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C.
The acquisition is the first time NSM has had locations outside of the United States.
Bill Mixon, NSM’s CEO, said in a news announcement, “This acquisition supports our mission to reach more individuals in need of mobility solutions. We look forward to collaborating with our Canadian team to learn from each other and create operational synergies that benefit our clients and business processes.”
SelfCare Home Health Products was established by Darryl and Kim Mackie in 1993, and NSM indicated that the Mackies will “remain with the company in a leadership capacity.” SelfCare provides mobility and home accessibility equipment via four current locations and a total of 60 employees.
A fifth SelfCare location is scheduled to open for business this year.
Mixon said of NSM’s first venture outside the United States, “Investing in locations outside the U.S. not only allows us to reach more clients, but also fuels continued progress in the CRT industry, both here in the U.S. and worldwide. We are proud to welcome this company to the growing NSM family.”
