Elsewhere, the company revealed that Alex Boon, mobility product specialist, has undergone extensive one-on-one training from Garry Hellings in addition to the manufacturers.

Mark Mason,general manager, commented: “Who would have guessed that just days from successfully acquiring HMS Mobility Solutions we would be faced with the Covid-19 pandemic?

“We are proud to have remained open every day and offered free home delivery to our customers during lockdown which proved very popular.

“Our merger and acquisition of HMS Mobility really has opened up our customer base and market penetration.

“Customers have remained loyal, and we have benefitted from working closely with OT’s, physiotherapists, NHS wheelchair services and several charities.

“We are delighted with the smooth transition and the growth that our merger with HMS Mobility has produced for us, it has been an exciting year.

“We now cover most areas of business from child to adults in the southwest.”

Garry Hellings, former managing director, HMS Mobility, said: “The coming together of two well respected businesses has proved to be a great success. 

“It has been an absolute pleasure assisting with such a smooth merger.

“I have enjoyed training and sharing my extensive knowledge of prescriptive mobility products with team Hickleys.

“The future looks very bright as more high-end suppliers have come onboard.”
