WATERLOO, Iowa (June 1, 2016)—U.S. Rehab and Permobil announced that TiLite will be a contracted supplier for titanium and aluminum manual wheelchairs for members of U.S. Rehab. Both U.S. Rehab and Permobil are very excited about this contract addition.
The new contract with TiLite is effective immediately and offers another preferred pricing program for U.S. Rehab’s members to operate more efficiently.
“We have continued to seek out top quality manufactures year after year. Our relationship with Permobil is very strong and we are so excited to have—TiLite, a partner of Permobil—as our newest manufacture,” said Greg A. Packer, president of U.S. Rehab. “We are focused on creating true rehab outcomes and patient satisfaction; our mutual interests in patient outcomes are what brings this synergy. This relationship with another high-quality manufacturer such as TiLite is a big win for U.S. Rehab members all over the country.”
“This is a great opportunity for TiLite, and we are extremely excited to be even more involved with U.S. Rehab,” stated Todd Walling, Permobil’s senior vice president of sales. “We have grown by forming successful relationships with those who share our vision like our friends at U.S. Rehab.”
TiLite provides nearly thirty years of experience in the wheelchair industry having made parts for manufacturers before introducing their own customized wheelchair in 1998.
Walling continued, “Like Permobil did with power chairs, TiLite set out to develop a superior line of manual wheelchairs that would combine orthoses-like customization with the most advanced materials. TiLite’s focus has always been to provide users with the best possible mobility. Having TiLite as a contracted supplier with U.S. Rehab, whose membership includes so many leading rehab equipment suppliers, TiLite now has the opportunity to do this on an unprecedented scale.”
