Winncare benefits from a strong R&D team collaborating with top-ranking medical research institutions, allowing the company to offer a unique medical value proposition to patients and medical staff.
The acquisition of Mangar Health will now see Winncare continue its European growth ambitions, providing the ability to service new healthcare markets such as emergency services, whilst also benefiting from the British manufacturer’s international distribution network in America, Canada and Australia. Additionally, the purchase will allow Winncare to fast-track entry into UK markets where Mangar has established relationships with care providers, local authorities, ambulance services and care homes.
Mangar Health designs, manufactures and supplies inflatable bathing and lifting devices, which protect carers from injury and promote independence for people with limited mobility. With a global reach into America, Canada and Australia, Mangar Health also offers a wide international distribution network and additional opportunities in healthcare markets such as emergency services.
