ALGONA, Wash. (June 3, 2016)—EZ-ACCESS, one of the nation’s leaders in providing access to life beyond barriers, has acquired a new product that will expand its growing catalog of accessibility and mobility solutions.
With the acquisition of South Carolina-based Phillips Lift Systems, family-owned EZ-ACCESS will add a line of power toilet seat lifts to its diverse offerings. Phillips Lift Systems, Inc., which was headquartered in Pickens, South Carolina, has been a manufacturer of the American-made toilet seat lifts for more than 20 years.
The acquisition is another step in the expansion of EZ-ACCESS’s product lines as part of the company’s mission to meet the needs of the entire accessibility market.
“During the past 30 years, EZ-ACCESS has made every effort to offer our customers the highest quality and most complete line of residential, portable, threshold and modular ramps,” said Don Everard, EZ-ACCESS CEO.
“With the acquisition of Phillips Lift Systems, Inc., EZ-ACCESS now offers the No.1 selling American-made toilet lift product,” Everard said. “Designed to assist an individual in sitting, standing and stability while toileting, the product offers the ability to return to independence in the bathroom. This lift is a perfect fit to support our growing accessibility product development.”
EZ-ACCESS will move manufacturing of the lifts to its facilities in Algona, Washington, and Morganfield, Kentucky. The product will be rebranded and sold under the EZ-ACCESS name of TILT. Release dates to the home health care market will be announced soon.
EZ-ACCESS, a division of Homecare Products, Inc., also offers a complete line of American-made products, which provide all-around solutions for mobility and accessibility. Its residential products include the PATHWAY Modular Access System, the PASSPORT Vertical Platform Lift, SUITCASE Portable Folding Ramps, TRANSITIONS Threshold Ramps, Mats and Plates, GATEWAY Portable Wheelchair Ramps and HAULWAY Scooter & Power Chair Lifts.
