American mobility giant Pride/Quantum establishes new subsidiary in Europe’s largest economy
Pride Germany is situated in a brand new, 16,000 sq. ft facility in the town of Hövelhof in central Germany.
Having been selling to the German market for over two decades, the facility provides Pride with more resource and capability on the ground, featuring a large warehouse, showroom, training room, four offices, repair shop and a technical service area.
“It was in the fall of 2019 when discussions began between Scott Meuser, CEO, Chuck Finn, COO, and me about opening up a stand-alone subsidiary in Germany,” said Tim Murphy, VP of European and Middle East Operations and Sales at Pride Mobility.
“We had to locate an appropriate facility, hire knowledgeable staff and create a top-notch sales force. It has been with much help from staff at Pride Corporate, Pride Netherlands, and our German management staff to see this come to fruition.”
Daniel Buck serves as the Managing Director of Pride Germany, a role in which he oversees all operations and manages the sales staff. Buck is a master of metal and has more than 10 years of experience in the mobility industry.
Now, Pride Germany’s 12 strong team will push to achieve the company’s ambitions to grow its presence in Europe’s largest economy.
“There are 83.1 million people in Germany and over 17.5 million are 65 years of age or older,” said Daniel.
“The number of people ages 65 and up is expected to double by 2029. The target of Pride Germany is to make the company the largest and most successful wholesaler in Germany, and to make the Pride Mobility and Quantum brands even better known. We will achieve this by our experienced team.”
The news comes following the launch of Quantum Rehab’s Edge 3 Stretto – an innovative, compact and feature-laden mid-wheel-drive powerchair – earlier this year.
