An Ableworld franchise store in Southampton is set to climb to new heights later this month when it will officially open a new stairlift showroom at its current site.
The new demonstration suite will feature 10 new stairlift demos designed to give customers a wider range of equipment to try out.
The launch will be done in partnership with stairlift manufacturer, Handicare, with staff from the firm providing education and CPD training on the day.
Southampton’s mayor will be present at the launch to cut the ribbon to the showroom expansion and OTs are expected to attend to receive free CPD accredited training.
Ableworld Southampton, run by Jeff and Steven Newman, is one of the company’s most successful franchises.
It opened its doors to a 2,700 square foot showroom and engineering facilities in June 2014.
In its first year of trading it turned over just over £590,000 and it is now turning over in excess of £1m.
Steven Newman said: “We heavily invest in consistently upgrading our store and workshops to the highest standards making the customer experience enjoyable in a relaxed atmosphere.
“The stairlift division of our business equates to around a third of our turnover and is rapidly expanding due to some great customer feedback and recommendations.”
