EXCITING NEW OWNERSHIP

As of today, Friday 12th May 2017, the sale of all K Care Businesses (with the exception of VHHE business in Victoria) to R&R Healthcare Equipment Pty Ltd is complete.

WHO ARE R&R HEALTHCARE EQUIPMENT?

R&R Healthcare Equipment is a family owned business unit of the Hogan family and is a proud market leader in the supply of healthcare aids and equipment.

IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL

It is the intention of R&R Healthcare Equipment to continue to trade under the same business names and continue to promote and grow these iconic K Care brands.

From a customer perspective, it is business as usual. We will offer credit terms to all existing customers of these brands and we will fulfill any orders that are currently in the system using a ‘first in, first delivered’ basis.

As the business has now been closed for a period of 5 weeks it has created a large amount of back orders and has posed some issues for customers of the previous K Care business. We would like to assure you that we are doing everything in our power to get your orders out.

A WORD ON OUR SITES

The Eastern Creek site has now commenced operation.

The site at Malaga in WA will be closed and the manufacturing facility will be transferred to our existing Adelaide, Sydney and Mildura manufacturing facilities. There is a large quantity of work in progress which will be completed and sent to meet customers orders. Any future locally manufactured equipment will be completed in our other sites. With the transfer of facilities, products manufactured from the Malaga facility will be 6-8 weeks behind on orders. We expect to be back on top of the orders within 3 months of transferring.

We will have the same sales team remaining in WA with warehousing and administration staff to service the current WA customer base.

R&R Healthcare Equipment has maintained the management team for each of the brands within the K Care group. Grant Clark will remain as the CEO of K Care nationally.

We look forward to working with you providing competitive product solutions now and into the future.
