AMP AWARDS 2019 SHORTLIST: Dealer of the Year (South)

Precision Rehab
Precision Rehab is one of the more specialist equipment dealers in the South. Prescribing the most advanced powerchairs requires the immense attention to detail and caring manner that Precision’s name suggests. The company has recently expanded its range to include a number of complex standing powechairs and brought in the Piccolino chair to widen its client base. The company has made itself a key feature of the industry’s major mobility shows and in doing so has widened its net. While it is based in a small corner of the South East, this year, Precision has reached customers from further afield but crucially, has ensured service has remained watertight.

Lifestyle And Mobility
It has been a busy year for one of the South’s most prestigious and quickly expanding dealers. Lifestyle and Mobility has impressed suppliers and peers with its forward-thinking approach to marketing and its proactive approach to store design. The retailer has run a programme of heavy investment in its showroom and staff. Management has re-configured its back-of-house store and installed new showroom fixtures to create a unique retail experience. It has also installed state-of-the-art computer systems and work stations. A new space offers more room for staff training and meetings with suppliers. Lifestyle and Mobility has plenty of exciting expansion plans in the pipeline and is definitely one to watch.

Ableworld Bournemouth
The South Coast is one of the hottest places to be opening a mobility shop right now. As such, it is a fiercely competitive area and bosses at Ableworld Bournemouth have had to call on all their knowledge and experience to stay ahead of the pack. The company has opened a new store in nearby Christchurch, meaning it has over 7,300 square feet of prime mobility retail space – the largest in Dorset. Ableworld Bournemouth has been busy implementing a multifaceted marketing strategy, including traditional advertising, an online presence and its parent company’s magazine. Ensuring it is open on Sundays and reaching more people than ever, the business is seeing around 15% annual growth.

TPG DisableAids
Under increasing commercial pressure, the whole team at TPG has pulled together this year to find new ways of adding value to its offering. It has already been recognised in several regional, industry and supplier award schemes, evidencing the high regard in which it is held. The company has demonstrated that each employee has played their role to the best of their ability so that the retailer can move from strength to strength. TPG’s success has allowed it to give more back to the local community in the form of sponsorship and educational events, including a scooter safety initiative. Overall, the team has excelled in making things happen and cemented TPG’s place as a premier dealer in the South.

Kent Mobility
With over 30 years of experience serving the people of the South East, Kent Mobility has established itself as a well-respected and trusted market leader. The business has invested heavily in clinical training and assessment stock and recently opened its new assessment centre, making it one of the only firms in the industry to have such a facility. In taking this bold step Kent Mobility has enhanced its already renowned reputation to become not just a product provider but a company that will go that extra mile and think outside the box. Kent Mobility has continued to take an active and vocal role in maintaining industry standards while at the same time protecting and ensuring fair terms for all private retailers.

The 2019 AMP Awards ceremony takes place on Monday 21 October at The Dressler, 113 Chancery Ln in London.
