Sitting Pretty’s partnership with Pride Mobility began in 2015 when it started producing the firm’s British-made lift chairs – a partnership which has grown from strength to strength.

Based in Nottingham, Sitting Pretty has been manufacturing motion furniture for the UK’s healthcare sectors and mobility markets since 2004.

As well as offering a tailor-made service across its popular riser recliner chair designs and specialising in ‘Tilt In Space’ technology, Sitting Pretty also manufactures adjustable beds, sofas and sofa beds.

By acquiring Sitting Pretty, Pride Mobility will be expanding its base and UK and European presence in what is considered a competitive industry.

Paul Clayton, Pride Mobility Sales Manager commented: “This acquisition will create massive opportunity for both parties.

“Pride Mobility will benefit from the already well-established Sitting Pretty infrastructure.

“Equally, Sitting Pretty now have the backing of a global company to carry out the business objectives and continue to grow.”

Acquisitions are not a new venture to Pride Mobility and its complex rehab power chair arm Quantum Rehab as it acquired Stealth Products back in 2014 furthering its global footprint.
