From the 1st July 2020, MMS Medical will assume overall responsibility for the assessment, sales, distribution and after care of the Rota brand of manual wheelchairs in Ireland due to the retirement of dealer principles David and Joan Diamond of Delta Orthopaedic. Both MMS Medical and Delta Orthopaedic have combined experience of over 60 years in the industry and MMS Medical have been supplying the Rota chairs in Ireland for several years. This will be a seamless transition and there will be no disruption to production, availability or supply of the product. The changeover will not affect any customers or orders. Production of the custom-built wheelchairs will continue at its’ existing manufacturing facility in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow.
The MMS Medical Product Specialists will carry out assessments and provide any information on the Rota product range and will be available for clinic support. All orders will be processed via MMS Medical as before. The MMS service and engineering team will provide the necessary aftercare, parts and service for the product going forward to customers and suppliers. The Rota chair is a popular option from many of our clients and is available from MMS Medical on HSE Contract 9233 as previously.
Commenting on the update, Gearoid O’Herlihy, M.D. “It was a straightforward decision for MMS Medical in partnership with Delta Orthopaedic to take over the full sales, distribution and aftercare of the Rota brand in Ireland. This effectively is what we have been doing for the past couple of years so this is an uncomplicated solution. We are delighted to continue to support an excellent custom-built Irish product and add it to our brand portfolio. We wish David and Joan a happy retirement and thank them for their cooperation and support for our business over the years.”
MMS Medical Senior Product Specialist, Ian Mold, will be responsible for the Rota Brand in Ireland. Ian has worked with both David & Joan for over 20 years, both as a customer and supplier and for the past 11 years he has been supplying the Rota range to his clients. ” I look forward to continuing to bring this wonderful Irish made product to our clients ” added Ian. ” I have had great feedback following the announcement so I know it’s a positive move for all”
“Ahhh this is big news for the wheelchair users and OT’s of Ireland! Of course it is not unexpected news. David has been ” threatening ” retirement for a while. He had to find and train in a suitable successor. As the MMS frontman for Rota Ian, you have big shoes to fill but I know you are up to the challenge!”
” The Rota wheelchair is a wonderful product, hard to beat for many people “
” I look forward to continuing to deal with you ( MMS ) for Rota wheelchairs as we have been doing in recent times anyway as well as other MMS products.”
