Ki Mobility expands custom seating business

Thursday, January 18, 2018

STEVENS POINT, Wis., and BURNET, Texas – Ki Mobility has acquired the custom seating business of Stealth Products, the two companies announced Jan. 17.

The deal follows an outcry from customers over Stealth Products’ decision in late 2017 to discontinue its custom seating business, according to a press release.

“We felt this acquisition was a great solution for both of our customer bases," said Lorenzo Romero, president of Stealth Products, which has worked with Ki Mobility over the years to provide mobility and seating solutions. "Stealth Products looks forward to working with the team at Ki Mobility to make this transition successful."

Stealth Products’ custom seating business will be transitioned to Ki’s headquarters in Stevens Point, Wis., to streamline the ordering process and improve delivery time, the companies say. Stealth Products will accept orders for custom seating until April 2.

The seating market has seen brisk activity in recent months. In November, Ki Mobility announced it would be the exclusive distributor of U.K.-based Leckey pediatric seating products in North America. Earlier this month, Lebanon, Tenn.-based Permobil announced it would acquire the custom seating businesses of Ottobock.
