BREAKING: Established Kent mobility retailer announces closure after loss of “vital income stream”
Founded in 1994, Maidstone-based Euromobility has announced it is to close but say another interested mobility company in the area may look to take over the long-established retailer and its staff.
Selling a wide range of mobility and independent livings aids, the company operated a showroom in Maidstone’s Mid Kent Shopping Centre, supplying mobility scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, as well as specialist reenabling equipment.
Announcing the closure, a statement released to THIIS by directors Lesley Floyd and Mandy Fenton detailed what has led to the difficult decision.
“It is with deepest regret and sadness to advise you that we have decided to close our company (Euromedical Products Ltd. Retail Division trading as Euromobility).
“Part of the Kent fabric for over 25 years, Euromobility has been a trusted name for both health professionals and the community and it has been a real pleasure working within the industry.
“Kent County Council chose to award the running of their loan stores to Nottingham Rehab Supplies Ltd. and we have worked extremely hard to continue to demonstrate and supply a range of products and services for the NRS contract.
“We were advised recently that the last of the work that we do and services that we supply for KCC through Nottingham Rehab Supplies was being withdrawn from us and taken ‘in house’ by them and without this vital income stream, we are no longer able to sustain as a company, therefore we have had to take the decision to close our business.
“As an update, this is to advise that we have spoken with a local company within our industry. They are very keen to see that Euromobility continues to provide the service levels and they are possibly looking at taking on the company including staff to ensure continuity.
“We are actively talking with both the company and the liquidators as we hope to see a positive way forward. We will, of course, keep you informed of any positive outcome.
“We would like to take this opportunity to say ‘Thank You’ to our loyal suppliers and customers to say how much we have thoroughly enjoyed working in and representing the industry. We have taken extreme pride in being ambassadors for Euromobility.”
