TIMRA, Sweden – Permobil has entered into an agreement to acquire Stockholm-based Panthera, strengthening its offering of manual wheelchairs.  

“Panthera’s products strengthen Permobil’s offering in the market with the world’s lightest wheelchairs for active users, alongside our Progeo and TiLite ranges,” said Bengt Thorsson, CEO and president of Permobil. 

Permobil acquired Pasco, Wash.-based TiLite in 2014. 

Both Permobil and Panthera say they share the same main focus: increasing the quality of life for people living with disabilities. 

“We have the same passion for our users and share the same values,” said Jalle Jungnell, owner of Panthera. “We deliver products and knowledge, which makes everyday life easier for our users.” 

Permobil and Panthera are expected to complete the transaction in early January 2022. They did not disclose terms.
