Handicare secures £1.6m public sector contract

Member News

Great news to share with the Made in the Midlands community about a contract win north of the border after Handicare has been contracted to provide stairlifts to a council in Scotland.

The deal with North Lankarshire council is worth £1.6m and Handicare described the win for both the Telford site and their colleagues in Scotland.

The contract is understood to be part of the council’s £10m fund to provide mobility equipment and stairlifts to residents in North Lanarkshire.

The deal involves employing Handicare and a Glasgow-based dealer, Stairlifts Scotland Ltd, to supply, install, remove and maintain stairlifts.

The service is designed to modify private homes and local authority housing and is run in partnership with the NHS.

Handicare’s national sales manager, Paul Stockdill, told AMP: “Our public sector contracts are an important part of the business and our successful bid against the competition clearly demonstrates the council’s confidence in our ability to deliver value for money services.” 

In 2017, £14m of Handicare’s £60m total revenue came from government contracts. Around £13m came from trade partners and £25 from direct sales.

The company sold 70,000 product last year and it has been investing in manufacturing tighter bends on its curved rails and techniques such as laser etching and digital bar codes for easier installation.
