Burnley mobility and stairlift firm recognised for resilience in the face of unprecedented pandemic
Jay-Care Stairlift and Mobility has been commended for its ability to persevere and adapt during the pandemic in Forbes Solicitors’ inaugural Reinvention and Resilience Top 50 report.
The mobility firm has been operating in the market for over 14 years and boasts a retail base and a separate 3,500 square foot engineering and storage unit in Burnley, from which it covers the whole of Northern England.
Founded by Managing Director Paul Anderson, an industry veteran with over 30 years’ experience, the Lancashire mobility business has, like many in the sector, had to adjust and pivot quickly during the pandemic.
Now the company has been recognised by Forbes Solicitors, a Legal 500 Top Tier Firm, in its Reinvention and Resilience Top 50 report. The publication features North West SME businesses that have innovated and diversified during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Over the last couple of months, we’ve been busy compiling research – including exciting nominations from small-to-medium-sized companies across all sectors – that showcases how businesses are generating revenue and protecting jobs in the wake of COVID-19, and we’re delighted to unveil the final Top 50,” explained Forbes Solicitors.
In the report, Jay-Care Stairlift and Mobility was praised for the actions it took during lockdown which enabled it to achieve record sales in June (£100k +) and July (£121k +) and enjoy record profits.
In particular, Forbes Solicitors’ research highlighted Jay-Care’s work with the NHS, which it notes had started to increase prior to the COVID-19 disruption. According to the report, the mobility company approached the NHS offering its usual services but with increased flexibility, including changing working hours to seven days a week for 13 weeks.
The flexibility helped support the NHS’ push in the NHS to discharge patients out of hospital across East Lancashire.
Jay-Care Stairlift and Mobility’s continued provision of emergency call-out and breakdown services to private customers, along with offering free home delivery on all products – regardless of the size of the order – was also noted.
Writing on social media, Paul Anderson, MD of Jay-Care, said: “We’re delighted and incredibly proud to be included in the inaugural Forbes Solicitors Reinvention and Resilience Top 50 report, featuring other exciting businesses from across the North West that have innovated and diversified during the COVID-19 pandemic.”https://thiis.co.uk/burnley-mobility-and-stairlift-firm-recognised-for-resilience-in-the-face-of-unprecedented-pandemic/https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Jay-Care-Stairlift-and-Mobility-Paul.jpg?fit=900%2C654&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Jay-Care-Stairlift-and-Mobility-Paul.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Coronavirus NewsCOVID-19 Trade NewsNewsroomRetailer NewsTrade NewsBurnley,COVID-19,Forbes Solicitors,Jay-Care Stairlift and Mobility,Lancashire,pandemic,Paul Anderson,Reinvention and Resilience Top 50Jay-Care Stairlift and Mobility has been commended for its ability to persevere and adapt during the pandemic in Forbes Solicitors’ inaugural Reinvention and Resilience Top 50 report.
