Euromobility appears to have found itself a buyer in Charterwood Mobility after it was forced to cease trading last month when the council withdrew its work in favour of a national equipment provider.
Euromobility said it was hoping for a successful takeover bid from a local company for its staff and business and that it was “very keen” to see the firm continue.
Its website now shows a statement reading: “We regret that this site is suspended until further notice. The shop premises at Mid Kent Shopping Centre is no longer trading.
“If you are a Euromobility customer in need of service or sales advice please call us at Charterwood Mobility on 01622 631511.”
Charterwood Mobility is based nearby to Euromobility and is run by industry veteran and well-known figure David White.
AMP understands that Charterwood has purchased some of Euromobility’s assets, including the website and telephone number, but not the stock or the retail unit.
AMP understands that Euromobility’s staff have not been taken on at Charterwood.
Another local mobility retailer had made an offer to the administrators to buy Euromobility but its offer was not accepted.
Euromobility’s directors, Lesley Floyd and Mandy Fenton, issued a statement in June explaining that the work it did for Kent County Council via NRS Healthcare was “taken in-house”.
The statement said that Kent County Council chose to award the running of their loan stores to NRS Healthcare.
AMP is waiting on comment from Charterwood and Euromobility’s former owners.
