Having ceased trading and entered administration in February 2018, Meditek Limited’s co-founder and former director Kevin Stafford-Price has reportedly been arrested in North Carolina for assault.

The arrest took place in North Carolina’s Wake County in the vicinity of Stafford-Price’s home address on the 9th November 2018. The 61-year-old was allegedly arrested by Wake County Sheriff’s Office and charged with assaulting a woman and resisting a public officer.

Now due to face trial, if Stafford-Price is found guilty and convicted, the former stairlift co-founder will likely face a prison sentence.

Stafford-Price co-founded Meditek Limited in the mid-1990s, which manufactured and sold stairlifts to the UK trade, as well as to distributors in countries including the USA, Japan and Australia.

Operating from its Durham-based factory and with a complementary base in North Carolina, the company called in administrators at the beginning of 2018, with Stafford-Price stating that “all the staff received redundancy, notice and monthly pay.” The claim however was disputed by some former Meditek Limited employees.

Netherlands-based stairlift manufacturer Otolift International BV acquired Meditek in March 2018 to increase its market share in the straight staircase stairlift range.
