Ki Mobility Acquires AEL

Ki Mobility has acquired Adaptive Engineering Lab (AEL), a seating and positioning manufacturer based in Milwaukee.

An Oct. 1 news announcement noted that integrating AEL’s product line into Ki Mobility’s Axiom seating line “is an important step that will allow Ki Mobility to lessen our dependence on third-party suppliers and create a complete end-to-end choice for seating and positioning solutions. We can now offer our customers a ‘Better By Design’ customer experience with improved product choices, an easier ordering process, and faster lead times.”

Doug Munsey, Ki Mobility’s President, said AEL’s inventory, manufacturing capabilities and customer service division will be moved to Stevens Point, Wisc., where Ki Mobility is headquartered.

“A ramp-up of inventory is planned to make this transition as smooth as possible to limit disruption to existing orders and current business,” Munsey said in the announcement. “More details will become available as we continue to complete the necessary steps to transition AEL to Stevens Point.”
