Mobility Networks was launched in March 2014, to deliver a comprehensive portfolio of global products to the transport sector. Synergising international manufacturing with regional support, Mobility Networks supplies wheelchair access lifts, ramps, escape hatches, lowered vehicle floors and further solutions to convertors and builders of buses, coaches, WAVs, PTS/ambulances, trams and trains. This multi-national organisation is continually expanding under the guidance of its UK headquarters and CEO Mike Simmonds – a renowned pioneer in vehicle accessibility. Mobility Networks provides a single source for solutions from the world’s best manufacturers so commercial benefits, value and sustainability is maximised. The company’s infrastructure and support levels in Europe have now been further strengthened by the acquisition of highly respected TMN Europe.
Based in Berlin and operating on behalf of its Israeli parent company, TMN Europe has been a trusted supplier of WAV products for more than 6 years. Since inception, TMN Europe selectively partnered with quality, global manufacturers to ensure its commercial and domestic customers were only offered the best in access solutions. These included wheelchair hoists, steering adaptations, tie-downs, specialist and automated seating, and the world-class FlexiRamp from API – all now available through Mobility Networks. TMN Europe’s impeccable service levels and commitment to customer care will now continue within Mobility Networks Germany. Stephan Schwartz, Director for TMN Europe has been promoted to Managing Director and will now work in close collaboration with Mike Simmonds.
Stephan brings extensive expertise to the Mobility Networks Group as he has operated within the vehicle industry for over 25 years. He was a founder member of REHA Group Automotive and following his move to TMN Europe, Stephan was instrumental in founding the European office. Stephan, alongside his specialist team of engineers, assessors and after sales representatives, will continue building on a proven reputation whilst introducing additional products and services via the Mobility Networks Group. During this exciting transition, service levels will be unaffected for existing TMN Europe customers.
Stephan commented: “Our evolution into Mobility Networks Germany will be of significant benefit to TMN Europe customers, both existing and potential. Since I established TMN Europe in 2004, my team and I have continually focused on delivering the very best in wheelchair accessible products and vehicle conversions. We take pride in our customer centric approach and this ethos perfectly fits with the brand values of Mobility Networks. I am delighted to have been appointed as Managing Director and look forward to leading the exhibition debut of Mobility Networks at REHACARE in Düsseldorf.
Mike Simmonds, Mobility Networks CEO added: “The opening of Mobility Networks DE Germany is a significant development for vehicle convertors across Europe. It now provides a trusted gateway to a wider range of quality accessibility products from across the globe – all supported by regional specialists with proven knowledge of the local market and specifier needs. New levels of commercial efficiencies are now available in Germany through our holistic package of support, from expert guidance and fast product provision, through to technical installation guidance, servicing and dedicated after sales support. I firmly believe Stephan Schwartz is the ideal innovator to drive Mobility Networks forward in Germany so that ultimately, more and more disabled individuals regain travel independence through cutting-edge, safe solutions.”
