Friday, June 3, 2016

ALGONA, Wash. – EZ-Access, a division of Homecare Products Inc., has made a second acquisition in its quest to become a one-stop shop for accessibility products.

The company, which has its roots in residential, portable, threshold and modular ramps, has bought Pickens, S.C.-based Phillips Lift Systems, adding a line of power toilet seat lifts to its offerings.

“This lift is the perfect fit to support our growing accessibility product development,” said Don Everard, CEO of EZ-Access.

EZ-Access will move manufacturing of the power toilet seat lifts to its facilities in Algona, Wash., and Morganfield, Ky. It will rebrand and sell the lifts under the EZ-Access name of Tilt. A release date will be announced soon.

In September 2015, EZ-Access bought Mesa, Ariz.-based Worldwide Mobility, a manufacturer of powered vehicle lifts. It rebranded the lift as the Haulaway.
