EXETER, Penn. (October 7, 2016)—Pride Mobility Products announced the beginning of manufacturing in its wholly owned, vertically integrated lift chair manufacturing plant in Pontotoc, Mississippi.
The Pride Mississippi plant is dedicated to producing high quality lift chairs using state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, quality-control processes and local craftsmen.
“We listen to our providers and know the exceptional quality demanded in the lift chair market,” says Joe O’Brien, senior vice president of global manufacturing. “We realize that the only way to achieve a win-win for all is to stay true to our 30-year roots in lift chairs, and evolve our wholly owned, vertically integrated manufacturing here in the United States via Pride Mississippi. The results are proving phenomenal in every aspect.”
Pride Mississippi, which currently employs approximately 100 local employees, manufactures every aspect of Pride lift chairs. The quality-controlled process begins with state-of-the-art computerized cutters that precisely form each of the lift chair’s engineered inner structure. From there, master craftsmen add the springs, upholstery and lift mechanism—creating an entire lift chair within the plant. The result is that from engineering to manufacturing to delivery, Pride’s lift chairs are uniquely manufactured in America, to the most stringent quality and manufacturing standards.
Providers will begin receiving models built in the Pride Mississippi plant as of November 7, with the majority of Pride lift chairs manufactured there by January 1, 2017.
“We’re proud to continue demonstrating—through three decades of manufacturing lift chairs that are wholly Made in the U.S.—superior product outcomes,” says Patrick Ramey, director of manufacturing, Pride Mississippi.
