Expanding its product portfolio in the sports wheelchair and fast-growing power add-on market segments, Sunrise Medical has confirmed the acquisition of Spanish-based manufacturer Oracing.

Mike Sheen, General Manager for RGK, who has been involved in the acquisition, commented: “Oracing is a well-established brand and a great addition to our group.

Oracing will now join Sunrise Medical’s vast array of mobility brands and products, however, Thomas Babacan, Group CEO at Sunrise Medical, confirmed the Spanish company will continue to be led by its existing management team from its current site under the Oracing brand.

“Sports and E-Mobility are exciting yet still very fragmented market spaces with great growth potential,” commented Babacan.

“Oracing complements and strengthens our portfolio. They have achieved impressive growth with their expertise and passion; and we will further accelerate the growth leveraging our breadth of industrial knowledge and global network. There are also good production, R&D and process synergies.

“I am looking forward to further enhancing our offering to more satisfied customers.”

Felipe Garcia, Founder of Oracing, commented: “The business has been developing well, and we are at the point to look at our next phase of growth. Sunrise Medical is the ideal growth platform for us.”
