Drive Medical acquires SOS
Drive Medical Limited has bought Specialised Orthotic Services Ltd. (SOS), a manufacturer and distributor of specialized seating and mobility products, effective January 23, 2015. Drive Medical Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Drive Medical.
SOS provides innovative specialized seating systems and other rehabilitation products to aid mobility and daily living. Drive Medical Limited also acquired the manufacturing and distribution facility of SOS located in Staffordshire, England.“SOS was the first dedicated specialized seating company in the U.K., and its reputation for providing innovative products and quality of service was a strong factor in Drive's decision to acquire the Company. Products such as the ‘P' Pod, Nessie and the wide range of postural seating systems will enhance our global product offering in this market segment,” said Richard Kolodny, president of Drive Medical.
