Able2 (formerly Promedics) was formed in the 1980’s and first established itself as a leading Orthopaedic and Hand Therapy manufacturer and distributor supplying hospitals throughout the UK.
Around the year 2000 the business branched out into the Aids to Daily Living market sector in the UK supplying healthcare retailers, social services and the NHS with a range of products to aid independence.
In 2002 the company set up an overseas subsidiary in Holland and launched Able2 Benelux as a supplier of Aids to Daily Living into the Dutch and Belgium markets
By 2004 the family owned business moved on the second generation of the same family, which is still the owner and dedicated supporter of this growing business.
In 2008 the Orthopaedic business (Promedics) was sold to an internal management team, allowing the remaining business to focus on the growing demographics of the Aids to Daily Living market sector. The remaining business was renamed Able2 UK Ltd to coincide with the overseas company name.
Also in 2008 Able2 acquired Spinal Products Ltd, a leading manufacturer and supplier of back care and pressure relieving products. This business was quickly integrated into the Able2 and now is a leading supplier of back care products, pressure care products, pillows, mattresses and wheelchair cushions into the UK retail market.
The business today continues to manufacture back care and pressure care products in Lancashire, England and continues to grow the distribution of Aids to daily Living products supplied to the UK and overseas.
