K Care joins forces with Mobile Repairs

Mobile Repairs

Dear Valued Customer,

K Care Healthcare Equipment and Mobile Repairs / Victorian Home Health Equipment (Mobile Repairs) is pleased to announce our partnership. The transaction will become effective in early February 2016.

Mobile Repairs will continue to be managed by General Manager Michael Barber who will report directly to K Care CEO Grant Clark. It’s business as usual for the customers and suppliers though customers will have access to an expanded offering of products and services and more feet on the ground.

“The Management Team and all staff at Mobile Repairs are very excited by the opportunity this acquisition provides to expand and improve our current range of service offerings and to facilitate distribution of the K Care range of products for the broader market.” said Michael Barber, General Manager of Mobile Repairs.

“K Care is excited to bring the team at Mobile Repairs on board as part of the larger group. K Care’s brands have been supplied into the Victorian market since 1949 and thanks to the foundation that Pat, Kathy and the team have established, we will have the ability to service and support both existing and future opportunities across the greater Victorian and South Australian regions. We are looking forward to working with the Mobile Repairs team,” said Mr Grant Clark, CEO of K Care.

Mobile Repairs was established 27 years ago and over the years, has grown organically to employ over 30 people today. After such success and with much consideration, the owners have decided that a transaction with K Care provides a unique opportunity for the Mobile Repairs team to grow and develop the business in years to come.

K Care Healthcare Equipment is a wholly Australian owned business that manufactures and distributes hospital, residential aged care, community care equipment and veterinary equipment for the Australian and international markets.

Established in 1976 as KDB Engineering, the company’s original two brands (K Care and Kerry Equipment) became and continue to be market leaders in Australia.

The business was acquired by Australian public company Hills Holdings in 2002 and acquired Air Comfort (McCann Smith) in 2005.  In February 2013, Anacacia Capital backed by the management team to acquire the business from Hills. In December 2013, K Care merged with Oxford-EME and acquired WhiteCellRx in June 2015.

K Care Healthcare Equipment brands are supported by a direct sales and support team in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Queensland and dealers throughout Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Arab Emirates.
