Motion Acquires A-1 Wheelchairs Unlimited
The addition of the British Columbia provider’s business brings Motion’s nationwide footprint to 42 locations in Canada.
Canadian mobility device and home access provider Motion (formerly Motion Specialties) has acquired British Columbia’s A-1 Wheelchairs Unlimited, located in Langley, BC.
Established by the Derkoch family in 1985 — the same year that Motion was founded — A-1 Wheelchairs Unlimited provides products and services to Langley and surrounding communities ranging from Vancouver to Hope.
A-1 Wheelchairs Unlimited will be rebranded as Motion Langley and joins a variety of prominent Canadian providers such as Shoppers Home Health Care’s Wheelchair & Stairlift Division, MEDIchair, Creative Mobility Products Inc., North Coast Home Medical Equipment, and Eastern Mobility Specialists, that Motion has acquired by over the last five years.
This recent acquisition gives Motion 42 locations in Canada.
“Building on our expansion throughout British Columbia, which began with the integration of Northern BC’s North Coast Home Medical Equipment in January 2021, this acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to enhancing our customer service and reach across the province,” said Thecla Sweeney, Executive Chair and CEO of Motion. “The Motion Langley team will work closely with our established Motion Vancouver team to best support our clients with their ongoing and growing need for quality mobility and accessibility products and services in this area.”
