Leading Irish distributor MMS Medical takes over responsibility for Rota wheelchair brand
MMS Medical has assumed overall responsibility for the assessment, sales, distribution and aftercare of the Rota brand of manual wheelchairs in Ireland due to the retirement of dealer principal David and Joan Diamond of Delta Orthopaedic.
Both MMS Medical and Delta Orthopaedic have combined experience of over 60 years in the industry and MMS Medical, Ireland’s largest mobility product specialist, has been supplying the Rota chairs in Ireland for several years.
Established in 1981, the Irish-made, custom-built Rota wheelchairs will continue to be produced at its existing manufacturing facility in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow, with MMS Medical stating that there will be no disruption to production, availability or supply.
In addition, the company has promised that the changeover will not affect any customers or order.
Having taken over control from the 1st of July 2020, MMS Medical’s product specialists will carry out assessments and provide any information on the Rota product range, alongside delivering clinic support.
The distributor’s service and engineering team will also provide the necessary aftercare, parts and service for the product going forward to customers and suppliers.
Gearoid O’Herlihy, Managing Director of MMS Medical, said: “It was a straightforward decision for MMS Medical in partnership with Delta Orthopaedic to take over the full sales, distribution and aftercare of the Rota brand in Ireland.
“This effectively is what we have been doing for the past couple of years so this is an uncomplicated solution. We are delighted to continue to support an excellent custom-built Irish product and add it to our brand portfolio. We wish David and Joan a happy retirement and thank them for their cooperation and support for our business over the years.”
MMS Medical Senior Product Specialist, Ian Mold, will be responsible for the Rota Brand in Ireland. Ian has worked with both David & Joan for over 20 years, both as a customer and supplier and for the past 11 years, he has been supplying the Rota range to his clients.
“I look forward to continuing to bring this wonderful Irish made product to our clients,” he commented.
“I have had great feedback following the announcement so I know it’s a positive move for all.”
According to the company, the Rota chair is a popular choice among its clients and is also available via the Health Service Executive (HSE) via its existing manual and powered wheelchair contract.https://thiis.co.uk/leading-irish-distributor-mms-medical-takes-over-responsibility-for-rota-wheelchair-brand/https://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Rota-Speed-Paediatric-MMS-Medical.jpghttps://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Rota-Speed-Paediatric-MMS-Medical-150x150.jpgNewsroomSupplier NewsTrade NewsAssessment,Delta Orthopaedic,distribution,Health Service Executive,HSE,Ireland,manual wheelchairs,MMS Medical,Rota Wheelchairs,salesMMS Medical has assumed overall responsibility for the assessment, sales, distribution and aftercare of the Rota brand of manual wheelchairs in Ireland due to the retirement of dealer principal David and Joan Diamond of Delta Orthopaedic.
