Mike Sheen, General Manager for RGK, who has been involved in the acquisition said in a press release, "Oracing is a well-established brand and a great addition to our group. Together with our existing strong brands like RGK, Quickie, and Empulse, we can offer the most suitable products to satisfy a large variety of specific customer needs in these fast-growing market segments."
Felipe Garcia, the founder of Oracing said in a statement, "We are thrilled by this transaction. I have started Oracing to pursue my dream to regain the freedom. We try to find the best solution to solve the daily mobility challenges for quadriplegic people like me. 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."
Thomas Babacan, Group CEO at Sunrise Medical, commented, "Sports and e-mobility are exciting yet still very fragmented market spaces with great growth potential. 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. Oracing has a strong and dedicated team of people headed up by an excellent management, who will continue to run the business at their current site under the Oracing brand, along with the new support and resources we have at our disposal."
