The MED Group, Lubbock, Tex, and Pride Mobility Products Corporation, Exeter, Pa, recently decided to continue the long-term relationship of the companies with an extended contract. The contract enables MED Group members to continue receiving access to Pride Mobility’s mobility products, educational and marketing support services, in the most cost-effective manner.

“What MED Group Members recognize is the value of our continued long-term relationship with a company as distinguished as Pride Mobility,” comments John Burks, The MED Group’s senior vice president of supplier relations. “Our Members vote with their purchasing dollars every day and it is evident by their purchasing response that MED Group Members prefer products from Pride Mobility. Pride Mobility’s combination of being the high-quality and cost efficient manufacturer, coupled with the exceptional work that they do to support our industry was key motivation to renew our agreement well before expired.”

“This is a significant opportunity for Pride Mobility and The MED Group to continue to make available to a large group of providers the type of mobility products that offer the end-user the features and functionality required to achieve their individual mobility goals,” comments Ted Raquet, Pride Mobility’s vice president of domestic sales. “The MED Group’s members not only benefit from more efficient pricing that is a component of this new contract, but also from the support services The MED Group offers members.”
