NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2019--National Seating & Mobility (NSM), the leading provider of complex rehabilitation, mobility and accessibility solutions in the U.S., is entering the international market with the company’s first acquisition in Canada. The new Canadian partnership is a result of the acquisition of SelfCare Home Health Products Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is the first NSM location outside the U.S.

“This acquisition supports our mission to reach more individuals in need of mobility solutions,” said Bill Mixon, CEO. “We look forward to collaborating with our Canadian team to learn from each other and create operational synergies that benefit our clients and business processes.”

SelfCare is a multi-site mobility equipment and home accessibility services provider serving the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The company has been owned and operated by Darryl and Kim Mackie since its inception in 1993, and they will remain with the company in a leadership capacity post-acquisition. SelfCare has 60 employees in four locations, with a fifth location planned for 2019.

“Investing in locations outside the U.S. not only allows us to reach more clients, but also fuels continued progress in the CRT industry, both here in the U.S. and worldwide,” said Mixon. “We are proud to welcome this company to the growing NSM family.”
