Mountain Trike Company marks 10 years in business


Cheshire-based off-road wheelchair specialist the Mountain Trike Company has marked its 10-year anniversary this month.

The business, based in Nantwich, delivered its first trikes in August 2011 after four years of research, design, prototyping and testing.

10 years on the company reports that many of the users of its very first models still own and use the durable trikes.

The brand offers a try-before-you-buy hire scheme, as well as face-to-face demonstrations. The Mountain Trike Company’s products are also adaptable to a customer’s needs.

Mountain Trike products are now sold through distributors in the US, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and New Zealand, and it has added new distributors in the UK to meet demand.

Talking about his time over the last 10 years, managing director Tim Morgan said: “It has been such a rollercoaster of a journey for me, from seeing my design idea come to life, to some steep learning curves in the business world, which has helped mould and develop the company to what is is today.

“It is a dream come true and I am incredibly proud. Knowing that the first trikes are still going strong 10 years later goes to show how robust and good value the Mountain Trike is.

“The company has come a long way since these first production trikes – we’ve developed into a successful business with global sales, expanded the range and the team, refined the product further, enjoyed many amazing reviews and TV experiences and most of all enabled so many people of all abilities to enjoy the great outdoors.

“Without our customers the company wouldn’t be what it is – many of our first customers have become good friends and ambassadors for our products.

“I love nothing more than hearing and reading about our customer journeys and outdoor adventures. I’m excited about what the future holds for Mountain Trike and am looking forward to growing our product range and hope for more continued success!”

In a press release to mark the 10th anniversary the company also teased that prototyping is well underway for upcoming product releases.
