PRIDE® EXPANDS VERTICAL, MADE-IN-USA MANUFACTURING

EXETER, PA – October 7, 2016 –  Pride Mobility Products® is pleased to announce the beginning of manufacturing in its wholly-owned, vertically-integrated, lift chair manufacturing plant in Pontotoc, Mississippi.

The Pride Mississippi plant is dedicated to producing the highest-quality lift chairs in the market, using state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, quality-control processes, and local craftsman.

“We listen to our providers and know the exceptional quality demanded in the lift chair market,” explains Joe O’Brien, Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing. “We realize that the only way to achieve a win-win for all is to stay true to our 30-year roots in lift chairs, and evolve our wholly-owned, vertically-integrated manufacturing here in the U.S. via Pride Mississippi. The results are proving phenomenal in every aspect.”

Pride Mississippi, which currently employs approximately 100 local employees, manufacturers every aspect of Pride® lift chairs. The ultra-quality-controlled process begins with state-of-the-art computerized cutters that precisely form each of the lift chair’s engineered inner structure. From there, master craftsmen add the springs, upholstery, and lift mechanism – creating an entire lift chair within the plant. The result is that from engineering to manufacturing to delivery, Pride’s lift chairs are uniquely manufactured in America, to the most stringent quality and manufacturing standards.

Providers will begin receiving models built in the Pride Mississippi plant as of November 7, 2016, with the majority of Pride lift chairs manufactured there by January 1, 2017.

“We’re proud to continue demonstrating through three decades of manufacturing lift chairs that wholly ‘Made-in-the-USA’ creates superior product outcomes,” adds Patrick Ramey, Director of Manufacturing, Pride Mississippi.

  1. Hi, my name is Ted, I am writing you on behalf of my mother who owns a 2015 pride gogo mobility scooter which is a well made, dependable and good looking machine. My comment / question is this. The first and only problem she has had is with the speed pot. I called to the dealer to order the required part which is the top part of the console at approx $100.00. This is all fine except I am told that it will take 5 weeks delivery time to London Ont Canada. These units to some people are a life line to get to appointments, shopping or just to get out in the fresh air.
    I do not understand how your parts department works so please explain to me why it would take so long to get the part, is it because of the travel restrictions due to the covid19 or is this normal. This is not a complaint, just a question. Thank you

    1. Hi Ted! I will be happy to help, I’m very sorry to hear that you are awaiting a part, if you’d like to email me the serial number of the scooter I can look into this further for you. My direct email address is: amoy@pridemobility.com

      Thank you, and I’m looking forward to providing further assistance.

      Sincerely,
      Amanda
