Harlow Mobility looking for new ‘dynamic owner’ who can take it to £1m turnover

Essex-based dealer, Harlow Mobility, is looking for a new owner to take over the business and who can use the firm’s history and reputation to double its turnover.

The company, which formally traded as 1st Call Mobility, currently turns over nearly £500,000 and since the sale of its bariatric division its owners have virtually retired, leaving staff to run the business.

Now, owner David Davidson is retiring completely and the store manager is relocating to Norfolk for family reasons, according to Daltons Business.

The current owners believe the time is right for “new dynamic owners to take over the business and reap the benefits.”

The business thinks that if the new owner runs the dealership well they could “easily double turnover” to around £1m.

1st Call Mobility, which specialised in bariatric equipment, originally traded from Harlow Mobility’s current site and grew to turn over in excess of £8m a year.

The bariatric division was sold to the Arjo group in June 2016 for an eight figure sum, leaving the retail shop to carry on as before under the name of Harlow Mobility.

The retail outlet is based in the Harvey Centre indoor shopping centre and the company says its service delivery and product range means it is considered a prime choice for local occupational therapists.

Harlow Mobility has been trading in the town for 15 years.
