Relaxa Mobility new bath lift woman in bath

Having successfully manufactured the Relaxa Bath Lift for over 20 years, CR Manufacturing has sold the assisted bathing device to iLECSYS Group, a new entrant to the mobility and bathing sector.

Originally designed and produced by CR Manufacturing’s Ann and Colin Rapsey, the sale was prompted by the pair’s plans to retire.

A leading enclosures and electrical components distributor, iLECSYS Group have been fabricating the metalwork for the Relaxa Bath Lifts for two decades and says it felt like the right step to become more involved.

The bath lift will now be manufactured by new company Relaxa Mobility – part of the iLECSYS Group.

Colin Rapsey of CR Manufacturing commented: “We wish the new company well and the bath lift an even wider appeal in what in what is a global market.”

The lightweight and slimline Relaxa Bath Lift uses minimal space and is easy to install, enabling others to continue to bath without the device’s assistance. Requiring no electrics or plumbing for the installation, the lift uses a rechargeable battery for operation.

Grace Tipson, Director and Owner of iLECSYS Group, said: “The Relaxa Mobility bath lift seems like a perfect fit in our group and we are proud and excited to be part of a business so rooted in the UK, with focus on quality manufacturing and UK sourced components. We will continue to support our suppliers of the Relaxa Bath Lift and provide as much support as possible for them to reach and assist their customers.”

Following the acquisition, iLECSYS Group has already looked at developing the product with a new Relaxa-Seat to further support people getting in and out of the bath.
