Sunrise Medical Acquires Oracing Wheelchairs
ORACING: COURTESY SUNRISE MEDICAL
Sunrise Medical has acquired Oracing, a leading Spanish designer and manufacturer of innovative sports and made-to-measure wheelchairs, as well as E-Mobility power products.
Thomas Babacan, Group CEO of Sunrise Medical, said in a news announcement, “Sports and E-Mobility are exciting, yet still very fragmented market spaces with great growth potential. Oracing complements and strengthens our portfolio.” He added that Sunrise would look to “further accelerate” Oracing’s growth.
Felipe Garcia, who founded Oracing, added, “We are thrilled by this transaction. I have started Oracing to pursue my dream to regain freedom. We try to find the best solutions to solve the daily mobility challenges for quadriplegic people like me. The business has been developing well, and we are at the point to look at our next phase of growth.”
Oracing chairs join Sunrise’s existing stable of Quickie, RGK, and Empulse ultralightweight manual wheelchairs and components.
Oracing manufactures and provides everyday wheelchairs, sports chairs, handcycles, and power-assist systems. The company is headquartered in Valencia, Spain.
