Medtrade Exhibitor EZ-Access Acquires Toilet Lift Manufacturer

June 6, 2016

ALGONA, WA – Medtrade exhibitor EZ-ACCESS has acquired South Carolina-based Phillips Lift Systems in a move designed to expand its growing catalog of accessibility and mobility solutions.

As reported by HME News and HomeCare Magazine, the family-owned EZ-ACCESS will add a line of power toilet seat lifts to its diverse offerings. Phillips Lift Systems Inc has been a manufacturer of the American-made toilet seat lifts for more than 20 years.

The acquisition is another step in the expansion of EZ-ACCESS’s product lines as part of the company’s mission to meet the needs of the entire accessibility market. “Over the past 30 years, EZ-ACCESS has made every effort to offer our customers the highest quality and most complete line of residential, portable, threshold and modular ramps,” said Don Everard, EZ-ACCESS CEO.

“With the acquisition of Phillips Lift Systems Inc, EZ ACCESS now offers the #1 selling, American-made toilet lift product,” said Everard. “Designed to assist an individual in sitting, standing and stability while toileting, the product offers the ability to return to independence in the bathroom. This lift is a perfect fit to support our growing accessibility product development.”

EZ-ACCESS will move manufacturing of the lifts to its facilities in Algona, Washington, and Morganfield, Kentucky. The product will be rebranded and sold under the EZ-ACCESS name of TILT. Release dates to the home health care market will be announced soon.
